The Wheel is a famous British Television game show that was the first broadcast on Television in the year 2020. The show has entered its third season in the year 2022. The show has been super successful since its launch in the year November 2020.
The third season of the show started to be on air in October 2022. This season is estimated to have 12 episodes in total. The show is hosted by one of the most popular hosts in British television history; BAFTA Award winner Mr.Michael McIntrye.
The show is a combination of big starts, giggly and eye-tearing laughs, and the main star of the show, the giant spinning colossal wheel. The game is pretty simple three random contestants are seated in a row, and seven different celebrities are called to help them. Then the star of the show is the spinning Wheel.
Is it being rotated? The rotation of the Wheel demonstrates and deciphers the luck and prize the participants will have. The show has also been launched in other countries like Finland, the USA, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden, seeing its popularity with different names and hosts.
The show revolves around seven celebrities who are all strapped around the circumference of the gigantic Wheel. With every single celebrity, expertise is bought to the show, and based on this expertise, the contestants are said to answer the questions. The contestants are asked to be underneath the giant Wheel where the celebrities are seated while the contestants are also seated on a smaller wheel downwards.
The Wheel of the Contestants is spun, and the contestant whosoever gets selected after the wheel stops are bought upwards. That is, the chair of the contestant rises, and they take place on the center of the bigger Wheel where celebrities are seated, and the game starts to begin.
The contestants are kept under control, and if a contestant can stay in the Wheel from the time he rises upwards till the end of the show, a life-changing amount is given to the contestant. Only one wrong answer and the contestant might lose his chance to return to the center becomes zero, and they are sent back to the Contestant wheel, and in many cases, the contestants never return to the spotlight.
The contestant who is in the center of the Wheel selects a category, and by it, they respond to a question that has been asked. The contestants are allowed to take help from the celebrities at whosoever the spin ends. A bank is also created where money is collected for every correct answer. For every correct answer, 10,000 Euros is added. If an expert is spun, 3000 Euros is added.
If an expert gives a wrong answer in their category, they are shut down for the next round. If all the seven experts answer correctly, the Wheel turns into gold, and 5000 Euros is added to the Bank. All the experts whose seats are not being shut down; and the ones who have not been spun during the game turn to Silver and whichever subject is left.
The question is set to 6,000 Euros if the Wheel stops on any of them, and later on correct answer the money is added to the Bank again. Once all the categories are completed, the contestant, whosoever has control of the Wheel, goes to the final round. The final cash-out question is asked, and the contestant gets a chance to take the huge sum of money.
But here comes the twist, for the final cashout question, only 30 seconds are given to discuss the answer with the chosen celebrity. If failed, the contestant is shut down, and another contestant comes up. Only three chances are given to a contestant to win the cash.
