's puzzles like a pro, he scored $142,550 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in honor of his brother, Dennis
, who is currently in remission with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. In so doing, Wagner not only did a really good deed, he won the most cash any celebrity contestant has ever
won on Wheel

Last week's second-biggest winner was Days of our Lives
diva Deidre Hall
. The artist also known as Dr. Marlena Evans snagged $73,285 for the Mariposa Middle School in Northern California. Fortunately, even those players who couldn't buy a clue, much less a vowel — I'm too nice to name names — received a minimum of $10,000 for their chosen charities.
