Poor Melanie ... poor, poor Melanie.
The answer was staring her in the face -- all she needed to do was guess the ONE letter missing from Thursday night's "Wheel of Fortune" puzzle and she would have won a bunch of money.
The category was "Same Name" -- and the key word here is "Shower."

Don't worry, Jenn was able to swoop in and clean up when Melanie struck out.
Poor Melanie ...
