But fellow contestant, LaToya Williams, also finished with $24,000. So, what happens?
Host Pat Sajak gamely explained the tie-breaker rules: the remaining contestants would take part in a “toss-up playoff” and the winner would move on to the bonus round.
Seconds after the new puzzle appeared, LaToya -- her brain likely going into overdrive -- buzzed in with her answer: “computer programmer.”
A tie hasn’t happened on the long-running game show since March 2, 2006, and before Wednesday, had only happened twice in its entire history. (The first tie took place on March 13, 2003.)
