    I am an avid SPIN ID checker, and as such receive regular emails from Wheel of Fortune and Sony. I saw that WOF was looking for “the face of the fan” in Chicago, and was looking for one minute audition videos. Being on WOF falls under the category of “dreams that will never come true if you don’t do something about it.” So, I immediately recruited my husband to videotape, and got to work putting together my case as to why I should be selected for...

    First off let me say a big THANK YOU to everyone at Wheel of Fortune for not only choosing me to be a contestant on the show, but for the great time and experience I had!  My hubby and I have been big fans of the show forever and it was an honor and a privilege to be chosen as a contestant.

     

    How did I become a contestant you ask?  Well, it all starts with a long standing rivalry between my handsome husband and I.   My hubby, Mase, is and has always...

    I have been a “wheel watcher” for as long as I can remember…and it has always been a dream of mine to be on the show!  In May of last year I spotted a story on my local newspapers website that said the Wheelmobile would be at a local mini-mall!  I was elated, and determined to get to that event!

     

    It was so exciting to see “THE” Wheelmobile in person…and I couldn’t wait...

    I decided to be a contestant because I have been a fan of the show since I was at least two years of age. I love the show and wanted to be part of its history. I thought I would do a great job at solving puzzles.

     

    I have applied to be on the show at every opportunity, from "Face of the Fan" to the recent Wheelmobile event at the University of Phoenix Stadium in March 2013. I believe I was chosen from that event when I enthusiastically solved the slogan "L'eggo my...

    I have always wanted to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune.  I remember watching the show every night with my family throughout my entire childhood.  Even in college, I watched it (whenever I had the time) with my roommates.  It was always a dream of mine to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune.

     

    After signing up to be on Wheel of Fortune’s email list, I was on my way.  A year or two passed with none of the emails inviting me to audition. ...

    I've been a faithful Wheel Watcher for decades. I even DVR the show every night, so I never miss an episode. My fiancé Andy says watching the show with me isn’t much fun, since I always call out the answers before anyone else gets a chance to read the puzzle. A part of me has always known I would be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune someday. It was just a question of whether I’d be featured on College Week, Newlyweds Week, or Senior...

    I’ve been a fan of the show since I was a toddler. I would watch with my parents, sitting in front of the T.V. and be fascinated with this spinning wheel in front of me. I remember calling the show “Wheelies” when I first started watching since I couldn’t say “Wheel of Fortune” all the way at the time.

     

    I remained a fan of the show, and always wanted to have the chance to be on it and spin the...

    I was browsing the internet in my apartment one night when my Wheel of Fortune experience unknowingly commenced. I came across a news story on a recent contestant named Autumn who had just won $1,000,000 playing Wheel. How cool is that?! It was then I decided I needed to try to get on the show. After a few minutes of internet research I found out that there was an upcoming Wheelmobile event in Terre Haute, IN – about a 5 hour drive from Madison....

    My name is Bethany L.  and I have always wanted to be on Wheel of Fortune. I applied online multiple times. I received an email that I could try out with a friend and chose to bring my best friend Breana C. When we found out we would be on the show we immediately searched and booked a flight and decided how many days we could stay.

    Growing up watching Wheel of Fortune with my family was tons of fun, especially when I solved the puzzles first!  I figured I had nothing to lose if I tried out to be a contestant on the show and what a dream come true it would be if I did make it. I knew Wheel of Fortune would be the best game show for me because of my love for word games; I know that once you make it to the show you don’t necessarily have to be the big winner to walk away...
