Who is the biggest winner on the Wheel of Fortune ever? Cindy Kling. Records are made to be broken on “Wheel of Fortune.” 10 years before Jinger and Bree and the gang brought home more $100,000 prizes in one season than ever before, contestant Cindy Kling set the record for the largest non-million prize in the show’s history.
Did Wheel of Fortune have 3 $100000 winners in a row? It’s a good thing Sajak set fans straight about the show’s strict ethics.
