Bay View resident takes home more than $16,000 on Wheel of Fortune

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- One lucky person from southeast Wisconsin won big on Wheel of Fortune on Tuesday.

Melissa Rickey from Milwaukee's Bay View neighborhood did very well on the episode.

She made it to the final round but could not solve the final puzzle.

She did, however, still manage to take home more than $16,000.

She hosted a viewing party where she told CBS 58 News that she had a great time.

"Meeting Pat and Vanna was really cool, these are people you've known, I grew up with them I feel like I've known them since i was a little kid so it was very surreal getting to meet them," said Rickey.

You can catch Wheel of Fortune weeknights at 6:30 p.m. on CBS 58.
