Does anyone else besides me believe "The Wheel of Fortune" is rigged big time?

Give me a break,

What are the odds that the "wheel" would land on bankrupt 5 or more times every game for the past 20 years or so? Next to impossible. Wouldn't there be at least a couple dozen shows over the years that would conclude without it landing on bankrupt. Plus, a news flash for all you Wheel of Fortune fans, the "wheel" can't have a mind of its own and just so happen to stop one tick away from all the bonus spots on the wheel 20 times in a game. On top of that it seems that there is a pattern to which people win or lose every single show. If you pay attention, there is always one big "loser" (whom the show believes is unetertaining) that never even gets a chance, another person that makes a little money (just to create the illusion that the show isn't rigged), and then someone else that wins by a landslide.

Please tell me I'm not the only one that feels this way, and if anyone can do the math calculations on the possibilities of landing on bankrupt etc... do so

    I'm not really a fan of the show in the first place, but, even so I would have to agree that it's rigged. I also believe that the big-time sports, such as football games, are also rigged {I know that borders on sacrilegious! --lol}.

    Unfortunately, many of our fellow citizens here in the U.S., are gullible, and willing to believe in "Fortuna". It is another sad example of what I call the media's "Weapons of Mass Distraction".

    You are not the only one that feels this way. My son and I use to spot the loser by the position in the panel. "Oh, look, there's tonights loser." Also, there appears to be some kind of brake on that wheel. It slows down awfully fast sometimes. What a crock.

    no how long do you think they could get away with that with the world watching, maybe it is why worryabout it your not winning or lossing anything people seem to enjoy it thats all that counts no?don't ever let life trip that trigger in you head theres a lot of sickness going around never fall into the trap.

    It's a game show for goodness sakes,, who really cares?? unless your the one on it not winning??? it's entertainment,, that's all it's not the root to all Evil,, it's not making our children dumb and our nation fat,, it's not cuasing the wars, or starving the children of Africa.

    Is this really all the better things you can think of to complain about???

    ( sorry PMS)
