    Meg pretty much dominated tonight, but I dunno what combo would've worked in the BR. I wonder if she's related to Emily from 10/22/2015?

    My rating: Low 7

    Well I have to Agree with you on this JP, Meg dominated the Show almost a clean Sweep. A BR loss really didn't matter.

    My Rating: High 6
    Tomorrow's Show will decide either we end up with a BR win and get a Winning week or a BR loss and another losing week

    Hey Meg Do You Think Winning A Million Could Be A Tough One On Wheel of Fortune
