Wheel of Fortune celebrates a million dollar winner!

NEW YORK Michelle Lowenstein, a floral designer originally from New Jersey, became the first person ever to win the one million dollar bonus prize on the show.

Her entire family gathered in Edison to watch the show and had no idea they were going to see something that had never happened in Wheel's 26- year history!

We were there when Michelle received a check for $1,026,80.00.

She says she definitely has some plans for all that cash, like maybe buying a house, a car, a dog, and helping out her family members.

"Wheel of Fortune" airs every night at 7:30 p.m. On ABC7.
