LOS ANGELES — A Fort Wayne native took a spin to win a fortune, and won!

Tyler Straessle took home $30,800 on Monday’s episode of “Wheel of Fortune”.

The episode was part of Wheel’s ‘Tennis Week’, in which all of the puzzles are tennis related.

WANE-TV says Straessle went home with the highest earnings of the night as well as a vacation to St. Lucia.

Straessle is also known for being a script coordinator for the CBS program “The Good Place” and for his work on several episodes of “Parks and Recreation”, according to his IMDb profile. 

Straessle graduated from Elmhurst High School and lives and works in Los Angeles.
