Bill Hoefer is a veteran from St. Petersburg that won big on Wheel of Fortune.
He's a game show enthusiast who has tried out for and participated in multiple game shows.
Hoefer is coming back to the Tampa Bay area with an extra seventy-four thousand dollars in his pocket and a tropical vacation. He plans to celebrate with his wife in Hawaii this January.
"I had the best time," said Hoefer. "My best advice to someone going on a game show like this, is don't overthink it, just remember its a fun time and unlike Monopoly, you get real money back."
