Mia has $8,375. Hilda, you may pick up money in the Big Money Round. And that we will get to right about now.

Jon: I will be giving the wheel a final spin of the day. As if I give you a letter and if it's the puzzle, you have five seconds to solve it. Vowels are worth nothing consonants are worth $1,000 plus whatever amount I landed. [spins]

[He and Mia go to the Bonus Round where Sora (holding a tray of envelopes) awaits]

Sora: Great game, Mia!

Jon: Okay, Mia. You know what Sora has in her hands. The tray of ten envelopes. Each containing a multiplier of a double, triple, or quadruple. Only one of them has the big decuple. Find it and you could increase your total to $83,750. Pick an envelope, and good luck.

[Mia takes an envelope off the tray]

Sora: Good Luck. [leaves]

Jon: Now, let's work on this puzzle. iKing?

iKing: The category is Person.

Jon: And remember: Person does not always mean Proper Name.

[_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _]

Jon: R-S-T-L-N-E. Let's see if any of those letters are up there.

[_ _ R _ E _ _ R]

Jon: Okay. Let's see if you can give us three consonants and one vowel. 

Mia: G-P-D-I.

Jon: Hmmmm.

[P _ R _ E _ _ R]

Jon: Well, that's all you're gonna get. Studio audience, no help from you. She must do this on her own. You have fifteen seconds to talk it out. Use the used letter board if you have to. Good Luck.

[Mia stutters a bit]

Mia: Oh no!

[BUZZER!] (time's up!)

Jon: Oh, I am so sorry. What was it?


Jon: Puveyor. Well, let's find out what would have happened. [opens the envelope to reveal] And you could have doubled your money. You end up wounding up with $8,375, that's not a bad payday for you. Thank you for being on the show.

Mia: You're welcome!

Jon: Well, that's it for the edition of ACME Wheel. We will be back next time with three more contestants spinning the wheel and solvin' puzzles. From iKing, Sora Nageino, and Alvin, this is Jonathan Mann reminding you to "Keep on spinnin' and solvin'!".
