Contestant Tony Harrison made a second appearance on Wheel of Fortune, Monday night. Even though contestants are allowed to compete only one time on the show, the software project manager from Valencia, California got a second chance, and he won big.

“If Tony looks familiar– this is Tony Harrison, who’s been here before,” said host Pat Sajak while introducing the contestants. “We had a little production issue, and in the interests of fairness, we brought Tony back.”

Pat did not elaborate on what the “production issue” was. Tony did respond to a viewer’s inquiry on Twitter, writing, “I really don’t know the answer…but the show was great about staying in touch and letting me know that it was just a matter of time.”

While the traditional adage is “third times a charm,” Tony proved that it is actually the second time! He put on a dominant performance, solving almost every puzzle and landing on all the right wedges.

Tony finished the game with $93,831 in cash and prizes, including a fancy trip to Barbados. And while many fans were impressed by Tony’s win, several wondered why he got to make a second appearance.

Wheel of Fortune airs weekdays, visit the show site for local listings of time and channel.
