Do you know how much it costs to "buy a vowel" on The Wheel of Fortune?

2I've never heard of this.

guessing... $250?
I dislike wheel of fortune... it's on after Jeopardy where I live, and the difference is quite jarring.

Don't know and don't care.

I feel the same way. Where I live it's on before Jeopardy.

I have no idea, I don't watch game shows. However, my sister would know.

Not for certain - but I have played the online game (I know, I know...) and it was something like $250 or $350? Although it might have been $125.

No. How much does a vowel movement cost?

I don't know. $500?

Yeah, my impression is Jeopardy is for smart (often nerdy) people and Wheel is for, well, other folks.

laughing out loud I guess we're not other folks.

That's terrible and if you keep it up I'm going to have to punish you! smiley:::winking raspberry

was 250 when I used to watch it. Ten years ago I worked with a guy who was the big winner on the show and won $25k.
(reply to bill) posted 22-Jan-2005 7:53pm  
Hah, I always preferred Wheel to Jeopardy. Jeopardy has too many obsure trivia questions. Very rare that I got any of them. But, I almost always had the Wheel puzzle figured out before the contestants.

I haven't seen that show in ages and don't remember how much a vowel costs.
posted 23-Jan-2005 10:18am  
200 dollars?
posted 23-Jan-2005 10:21am  
I think it's $200 or $250 I'm not sure. I hardly ever watch it.

It's funny... I don't think Wheel is easy or anything... I'm not that good at it myself (just so-so). I'm OK at guessing Jeopardy questions (maybe 50%, often I'm guess based on how the question was worded). I think it's more the style of the show that I like better. People saying "big money" as they spin a wheel just doesn't float my boat. I guess I learn stuff from Jeopardy, though it is trivial.
(reply to bill) posted 23-Jan-2005 12:30pm  
Yeah, I could do without all the glitz, 'big money' bit on Wheel. I suppose either isn't a major thing in the meaning of life.
(reply to cerealkiller) posted 23-Jan-2005 12:44pm  
I am really good at Wheel of Fortune too. I noticed sometimes the contestants probably solve the puzzle as I am, but they are just going for the "big money." I don't like the glitz and big money bit either.

No, I don't know for sure.. years ago it was 200 or 250 I think.
posted 23-Jan-2005 9:08pm  
it used to be $250, but i haven't watched that show in a long time...i'm not really sure how inflation effects the price of vowels.
(reply to LindaH) posted 23-Jan-2005 9:14pm  
I think most of us can solve it before the contestants do. I'm fairly sure that's designed into the show, otherwise not nearly as many people would feel good about watching it.

Thankfully I don't watch daytime TV, so I wouldn't have the faintest idea. I don't even care enough to hazard a guess.

I once had a theory that there was a conspiracy of sorts to make daytime TV as repellently awful as possible in order to for it to be a form of Social Darwinism

The idea being that it would provide extra incentive for competent people to get out of their houses as quickly as possible and get a job. On the flip side, anyone who actually enjoys daytime TV and becomes addicted to it is probably unemployable.
posted 24-Jan-2005 7:18am  
Nope...and I feel pathetic admitting...I only just learned that they are actually buying vowels! Hmmph.
posted 24-Jan-2005 9:37am  
I have NO idea
(reply to Kristal_Rose) posted 24-Jan-2005 1:12pm  
Good point, but I also solve it before the other people sitting in the room with me do. laughing out loud
posted 24-Jan-2005 2:13pm  
I believe it is $250.00 although I do not care for the show.

There just trying to be punny.

No, but I've actually wondered about it before.

$250, right?

I find Jeopardy a mixed intrigue. On one hand, I know a majority of the answers, on the other, I can't blurt them out in a timely manner.
posted 25-Jan-2005 12:19am  
puny phon.
(reply to Kristal_Rose) posted 25-Jan-2005 12:51am  
I don't know many answers in Jeopardy. I've never been interested in trivia in general. Every once in a while a category comes up that I know almost (if not all) the answers in that category.

I sent you a weird picture in mail.

Yep, I've seen that happen by accident - Windows operating within a Windows window. A three year old did it somehow.
