A truly heartwarming ending has followed a Wheel of Fortune win.

Keep scrolling for the touching video...

Each Wheel of Fortune episode is opened by the hosting duo, Pat Sajak and Vanna White...

And the pair usually waste no time in introducing the episode's latest contestants, before challenging them to spin the famous wheel and answer questions in the battle for the much-desired cash prize.

The vibe of the show is usually pretty jolly...

But one contestant has taken the biscuit.

The episode started like any other regular edition of Wheel of Fortune.

And then made an adorable announcement.

"It's been a dark time. When I went on the show, I was doing it for the fun of it," Kolbrenner told Good Morning America.


"I said to my wife as I went on, 'If I do OK here, anything that I get, let's give it to charity.'"

"'We're very fortunate. Let's see if we can support some others who aren't as fortunate as we are.'"


"My kids didn't know. My parents, friends, family didn't know. So it was complete and utter shock for everybody in our lives," he said. "They were elated about it."

He's splitting the money between Uplift Family Services and L.A. Regional Food Bank.


What an amazing guy!

Watch the heartwarming moment here.

We should all be a little more like Scott.
