      Anyway I guess the BR puzzle and Celina didn’t. But a BR loss is gonna stick as it is.

    It Was Dissapointing For Celina Garcia To Miss Out On $50,000 Just Like Tina Arons The $50,000 Winner Since October For Wheel of Forune

    First $50K loss since october? That’s harsh. Anyway a okay episode with Celina winning a Half Car and the prize puzzle.
