(NEWS10) — A local woman won tens of thousands of dollars on Monday night’s Wheel of Fortune.

Melissa Grega competed on the game show Monday and earned enough money to make it to the final puzzle. She went into the round with a trip to London and the chance to win $1 million.

The Troy woman chose What are You Wearing as her final round and immediately guessed the correct response: Heavy Jacket.

Grega took away $37,000 from the final puzzle and walked away with $55,440 in cash and prizes from the game.


Prior to the show airing, NEWS10 ABC’s digital reporter Cassie Hudson interviewed Grega about her experience being on the show.
