In a recent interaction with USA Today, Hart expressed her delight in winning the prize and stated that she won because of witchcraft and added how much she prayed to win the money. She said, "I would like to say witchcraft was involved. But to be honest, I prayed a lot more than any kind of sorcery. I literally prayed every round, especially that winning round. I'd close my eyes and say, God, give me focus and calm and let me just read these letters." Hart also expressed her desire to the Wheel of Fortune producers to take the $1 million winner card as a souvenir. She said, "They had to ask the prop people, 'Can we make more of these?' So not only did I win the million, I stole the million-dollar card."
