"Wheel of Fortune's" First Contestant with Special Needs Solved Two Puzzles, and Won Over $2,000 [Video]


In case you missed it, "Wheel of Fortune" had its first contestant with SPECIAL NEEDS on Wednesday.  He's a 21-year-old named Trent Girone from Arizona, who suffers from Asperger's and Tourette's.


And he didn't win, but he did solve TWO puzzles that were pretty tough, and went home with over $2,000.  Trent says he's been a huge fan of the show since he was TWO, and taping the episode was one of the best experiences of his LIFE.
