Thunder Bay native Ryan Mihalus and wife Anne didn't make it to the final round on Wheel of Fortune, but they did walk away with $3-thousand.
After Anne introduced Thunder Bay to host Pat Sajak, Ryan educated him on Canadian culture.
"We met at Lakehead University, go Thunderwolves... in our free time we like to curl with our boys and go on family vacations."
Sajak clarified curling is the sport, and double checked Sudbury is where Alex Trebek is from.
Unfortunately Ryan and Anne couldn't seem to avoid that bankrupt slot, at one point going for $10-thousand dollars only to pick up a hidden bankrupt card from the wheel.
Ryan did solve one puzzle, that being "The Planet Earth".
