By now, you've probably heard of the case of Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell. They're going to be facing trial in April of 2023 for their heinous acts against J.J. Vallow, Tylee Ryan, and Tammy Daybell. Their horrific crimes are documented in the trending Netflix documentary Sins of Our Mother and one particular detail absolutely caught me off guard.

Before Lori Vallow there was Lori Ryan

In the Netflix documentary, Lori Vallow is portrayed as someone who loved the spotlight in her early days. The documentary series shows her competing in pageants and yes... Wheel of Fortune. Let's take a look at Lori Vallow (who was then known as Lori Ryan due to her marriage to her ex-husband Joseph Ryan Jr.) and her time on Wheel of Fortune.

Idaho's Most Evil Woman Once Competed on Wheel of Fortune

Believe it or not, the monster known as Lori Vallow once competed on an episode of 'Wheel of Fortune.'

It's horrific to think about and in some sense, it's extremely sad. In the clips, Lori seems to be enjoying life as a hairstylist in Austin, Texas while beaming with joy as she talks about her son Colby and her daughter Tylee. At the time, Tylee was just a year old and it's heartbreaking to think that her mother, the Wheel of Fortune contestant, would have a hand in her death.

Interestingly enough, it's not the first time evildoers and murderers have appeared on TV for reasons unrelated to their crimes. Back in 1991, the infamous "BTK Killer" made an appearance on a show for being a dog catcher.

In terms of game shows, fans of the show The Dating Game were shocked to learn that one of the contestants on the show was, in fact, an actual serial killer.
