During the May 2003 College Week, a contestant named Sarah said that her mom and dad met on a trip that her mom purchased during her Wheel appearance in 1977, adding that she literally would not have existed if not for Wheel.
Michelle Loewenstein crying tears of joy with her husband after she won the $1,000,000.
On an episode of Military Spouses Week (February 2012), Pat and Vanna surprise contestant Maryanne by reuniting her with her husband upon his return from Afghanistan.
In some of the closing segments, Pat and/or Vanna do "Wheel Changes Lives", a special segment where they show how a prior contestant has used their winning for good (donating to charity, for instance). Many of the "Wheel Changes Lives" segments can fall right into this trope.
