Wheel of Fortune contestant Colin Donahue was just bursting with charisma on Thursday. The 39-year-old from Commanche, Iowa, was so happy and his energy was contagious.
From the very beginning he had host Pat Sajak smiling. And he got a chuckle from the audience when he enthusiastically said he was a customer service agent for the “greatest insurance agency on the planet.” He also revealed that his favorite hobbies are “eating and sleeping.”
Colin might be one of the most fun players I’ve seen. #WheelOfFortune— AsteroidslungfromJupiter (@zmj001) January 24, 2020

Colin was very very impressive and fun to watch today on Wheel of Fortune.— RyF (@Ry_Feathers) January 24, 2020
He appeared to be a little too excited when the game officially started. He buzzed too early on the first puzzle and apologized, earning yet another chuckle from Pat.
Throughout the game he endeared himself to fans and viewers in various ways. He tricked Pat into thinking he got a Bankrupt mystery wedge when in reality he got $10,000. Pat jokingly scolded Colin, saying “Hey, don't mess with the host.”
Damn 😂😂 I just laughed so hard. This man, Colin, on wheel of fortune is the goat for fooling Pat with the $10,000 wedge 😂😂😂💀— Shelby⭐Starr (@aStarr_W_2Rs) January 24, 2020
Colin was not just charismatic, he was also very good at solving puzzles. In a recent interview, Colin said he’s been a fan of the game show since he was a small child. It showed, as he ended up winning $60,350... and tons of adoration from viewers.
