21-year-old Trent Girone, who has Asperger and Tourette Syndromes, had dreamed of being on Wheel Of Fortune since he was a toddler. On Wednesday, he not only fulfilled that dream, but also made history as the first special needs contestant on the show.
"I have been a fan of the show since I was at least two years of age," Trent wrote in a blog post. "I love the show and wanted to be part of its history. I thought I would do a great job at solving puzzles."
And Trent was right, he did an awesome job solving the puzzles. While he didn't end up winning, he didn't care, he was just happy to have been on the show...
"My best advice to future contestants is to relax and have a good time. It is a lot of fun, whether you win big or not. That is my number one guarantee," Trent wrote.
"February 27, 2014 was one of the BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE! Thanks, Wheel of Fortune!"
