RuPaul Misses the Chance to Win a Million Dollars For Charity
Celebrity Wheel of Fortune returned to ABC after a two-week break with an all-new episode starring RuPaul Charles. Gayle King and Julie Bowen appear alongside RuPaul, each attempting to win a huge sum of money for a charity of their choice.
RuPaul chose to support the Ali Forney Center as his charity of choice. For those who many not know, it is the largest center that helps provide homes for the LGBTQ community. RuPaul managed to land on the million dollar wedge during his turn to spin the wheel. He also correctly predicted a letter and continued to play for the million dollar wedge he won.
The renowned drag queen nearly solved the entire puzzle when he gave the wheel one final spin, but unfortunately, it landed on bankrupt, and he lost both the chance to win the one million dollars and all the money he had already collected for his charity.
In the end, Bowen won this week’s competition with the most money for her charity. About $60,000 was awarded to her chosen charity Baby2Baby. Meanwhile, King earned over $34,000 for her charity and RuPaul was able to earn $30,000 for his organization.
