Is this the ‘Million Dollar Shot’?
It’s more a shot of a Millionaire!
While enjoying the accommodations at Black Orchid Resort, in Burrell Boom Village, Belize District, the staff of Ambergris Today had the pleasure of meeting a ‘Million Dollar Celebrity”. Autumn Erhard became a millionaire after beating the crazy odds at the popular Wheel of Fortune TV game show. She and her fiancé Joey Penna visited Belize this past March as part of a travel package she also won at the show.

Autumn won the Belize adventure package “Best of Both Worlds” provided by Black Orchid Resort when she became the second million dollar winner in the history of Wheel of Fortune. For her to win she had to land on the $1Mil spot during the first rounds of the game, solve a “Best of both Worlds” puzzle, beat her contestants, make it to the bonus round without landing on ‘Bankrupt’, spin the wheel again and land on the $1Mil card (again) and then solve the final puzzle.
Autumn was able to do all of this and beat the high odds. Luck was on her side it seems; she is 30 years old, was on the Wheel show on May 30 during the ‘Celebrating 30’ week of the 30th season of the show.
Well, when we caught up with Autumn and Joey at Black Orchid Resort, they were enjoying some tropical cocktails at the bar while they waited for their dinner. They had just come from an adventure in the jungles of Belize and were telling us who much fun they were having. They commented on how they love the country and felt so welcomed at the Black Orchid Resort, with the staff’s excellent hospitality.
