Wheel of Fortunehas been on air for more than 40 years, but it wasn’t until Tuesday that a particular feat was accomplished. For the first time in the game’s history, two contestants won the $100,000 grand prize in the bonus round.

On Monday, contestant Lisa Kramer took home the $100,000 bonus on her way to a grand total of $116,700 in winnings. Throughout Tuesday’s broadcast, host Pat Sajak made multiple references to the win.

“On yesterday's show, we gave $100,000 in the bonus round,” Sajak said. “I checked the rules. It can happen two days in a row. Nothing says you can't do that.”

Fortunately, contestant Mark Baer was brought the luck and skills necessary to pull off the milestone. He claimed the $100,000 bonus prize on his way to a grand total of $126,550 in winnings.

“It's never happened,” Sajak chuckled. “And wouldn't you know it, I just sold all my confetti stock. …There's always something new around here, isn't there? That's incredible.”

Viewers flocked to Twitter to celebrate the historic occasion.

TWO IN A ROW for the first time ever in @WheelofFortune history!! 🤯🤯🎊🎊

We've never even had two $100K wins in the SAME WEEK before.

We HAVE had the $100K hit twice in a row before, but they were never both wins. #Wheel100K pic.twitter.com/GhMCdptiWd

Viewers were almost as surprised as Sajak by the win, particularly former Wheelchampion Robert Santoli, who pointed out on Twitter that two contestants haven’t even won $100,000 in the same week before.
