So what can you expect at a Wheelmobile event? Let's start with “fun” and go from there. At each event thousands fill out applications for the chance to have a go at a traveling version of the game show. Throughout the event, individuals are called to the stage to play a Wheel of Fortune speed-up round — each prospective contestant appearing on stage will win special show-themed prizes, and the most promising candidates are invited back to a final audition for the show. Even if your application isn’t chosen you’ll still experience all the fun of Wheel of Fortune as if you were at a taping with Pat and Vanna. We’ll also place your application in a drawing for a spot in the final contestant auditions.
But unfortunately, showing up to a Wheelmobile event doesn’t guarantee you an audition for the live show. There are many people who have an interest in being a contestant and not everyone makes the cut. Last year, more than a million people applied and only 600 were selected. So if making an event means sacrificing expenses, loss of wages or more, don’t fret, we’ll surely be back around again.
