During each, groups of five contestants at a time are randomly drawn from a tumbler by Heidi, the traveling show's version of Vanna White.
There is no spinning a wheel for the contestants, they give a letter and then must solve. Every contestant went home with something, from a key chain to a soft side cooler, depending on the outcome of the host's spin of the wheel.
