Chadwick Boseman, star of “Black Panther” (the movie was featured as a Wheel of Fortune puzzle on Jonny Knowle’s episode from 4/9/2018 (BOX OFFICE BLOCKBUSTER BLACK PANTHER)), has lost his four-year battle with colon cancer today at the age of 43.
Rest In Peace to a star we lost today. Thoughts & prayers with you.
Troy, Ming & Brooke from Guy’s Grocery Games are this week’s Contestants of the Week for their perfect playing of the Trivia Round.
Honorable Mentions: Christina, Alan & Max (advanced through their own merits), the W.A.F.F.L.E. Crew (voted in from online) and Malik (voted in by Howie & Heidi over Nolan) advanced in America’s got Talent.
According to Xfinity listings the season premiere date for S38 of Wheel of Fortune is September 14th. However, the theme week is listed as “Pat Sajak, Vanna White” instead of Teacher’s Week which is what the premiere week will actually be. And an email sent to Wheel Watchers Club members yesterday confirmed this.
NBC is airing two bad moment episodes of the Wall for two weeks.
Roland, this season’s winner of Alone: The Million Dollar Challenge, is your Contestant of the Week.
Well, they’ve finally forced us to switch to the dreaded Gutenberg Blocks Editor (now known simply as the WordPress Editor), but at least they provided an option to make Classic Blocks to use the Classic Editor within the block (or you can use the Classic Editor in the WP Admin page), at least for now.
To create a Classic Block you click the + button on top of the screen, in “Search Blocks” search “Classic” & choose “Classic Editor.” If you don’t use the Classic Editor then you’d need to copy and paste the hexadecimal values of your desired colors for your text constantly which is straining & eats up time. I wish there was a way you could save those colors without needing to constantly copy & paste the hex values without needing to rely on Classic Blocks should they phase that out of the editor some day, but in the meantime we thankfully have Classic Blocks.
Anyway, if you thought the September 23, 1997 episode was a trainwreck, then this one’s WAY worse (yes I’m adapting to Adam Alam’s format)…
SERIES-LOW GT: $1,400
Tonight’s Bankrupt Trash: $9,100
The entire episode itself. Things just NEVER got off the ground. PERIOD.
Bonus Round Win: No (’62 Austin-Healey Saxon roadster worth $20,924)

An episode this bad deserves a skunk too, even though we weren’t skunked that week.
Jeopardy will be airing a daily double wipeout to kickoff the Teacher’s Tournament on August 31st.
The Williams family from the Don’t S.F. are your Contestants of the Week due to scoring a near-perfect win on the show. Throwback Shoutouts once again go out to the fifteen contestants who participated in the 2002 Jeopardy!

MILLIONAIRE BY JUST ONE DOLLAR OVER 2-TIME TEEN TOURNAMENT CHAMPION ERIC NEWHOUSE!! And then he would go on to win many more tournaments since, never losing to a human (he lost to IBM’s Watson) until the G.O.A.T. Tournament where he finished last to 2nd place James Holzhauer & winner Ken Jennings.
