Wheel of Fortune is a popular game show that began in 1995. Originally premiering on NBC, it was hosted by Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford. The show bounced around between NBC and CBS during a daytime slot before it was formatted for a nighttime version. Pat Sajak signed on as the host of the daytime series in 1981 and began hosting the nighttime version in 1983 with Vanna White. While the daytime series ended in 1991, the nighttime syndicated version continues to go strong on ABC! In a game of Wheel of Fortune, can you solve these phrases?

In Wheel of Fortune, there are a host of different categories ranging from "around the house" and "show biz" to "rhyme time" and "fictional character."
