Olive Branch court reporter Lashawn Marshall walked away a grand prize winner following Monday night’s edition of the Wheel of Fortune.
The Mississippian cruised through the game show’s first set of rounds, racking up $29,724 in winnings before advancing to the bonus round.
During the final round of the episode, Marshall selected the “Around the House” category. The letter “h” came in handy for the court reporter as she shouted, “Handheld vacuum!” shortly after the 10-second timer had sounded, solving the last puzzle and winning a grand prize.
In total, Martin received a cash value of $64,359, which included a 2023 Ford Escape as her prize for solving the bonus puzzle.
After the conclusion of the game, an overwhelmed Marshall apologized to co-host Vanna White for expressing her emotions through tears of joy, to which White responded, “Don’t be sorry! Crying is a good thing.”
