Laura Trammell, a sixth grade teacher from California, made history on the game show with a massive win: she became the first person to ever win a house in the Wheel of Fortune bonus round, Yahoo Entertainment reports.
What happens when you win a house on Wheel of Fortune?

Do Wheel of Fortune contestants get to keep their winnings?
In the case of Wheel of Fortune, when you win trips, the show allows you to find less expensive versions of the trips you win, thereby decreasing your overall tax bill. But, if you’ve won any significant amount of cash and/or prizes, that will still leave you with a hefty tax payment at the end of the show.
