KC provided a touching introduction to his mother Liz, sharing her remarkable life story: “She spent the first 88 years of her life in Oklahoma with my dad. They, for 62 years, traveled the world, a hundred countries and seven continents. He passed, she moved down five years ago to be with me.”

He continued: “And I say, you know, the first 18 years of my life you taught me how to use a spoon, do all the things, watch Wheel of Fortune. And then the last five years I’ve been able to try to give something back to her.” Liz, in turn, called her son KC “the greatest father in the world.”

Choosing the Food and Drink category for the final puzzle, Liz astutely identified DRIZZLED HONEY, much to the joy of the audience. With an additional $40,000 added, their total winnings reached $65,500, along with the trip.

Sajak expressed his amazement, stating: “You know the longer I’m with this show, the less I understand it.” Liz and KC celebrated with family, and the cameras captured Liz asking her son: “OK, do you think your dad would be proud of us?”

Not only did Sajak and White enjoy Liz’s performance, but White also revealed on TikTok that this was her favorite show in her 41 years on Wheel of Fortune because Liz made it “so special.”
