This Week's Contestant
|Hometown:||San Mateo, CA|
I know, I know, Bill Gates is a billionaire. I should have known that!! Believe me, that $10,300 mistake will haunt me for the rest of my life. I was just so scared if I spent the Wheel again, I would land on bankrupt. I thought I knew it and went for it. When Pat said I was wrong, my heart sank. The thought of billionaire didn't even enter my mind. It was the first round and I was still pretty nervous, everything just seemed to be happening so quickly. That's OK, it is all part of the game, right? As I look back on the first round, I think loosing that gave me my determination to stay focused and come back.
As for missing out on the Kia, don't you just hate Bankrupt? If I wouldn't have landed on Bankrupt I would have had both halves. No worries, I have a car. The Bonus Round, I had know idea what the second word was. I'm just happy I made it to spin the mini Wheel. I figured it would be a 50/50 chance if I made it.
At the end of it all, I won exactly what I wanted. I said that I would be happy if I won a trip, and I did!! Barbados, here we come :) The extra shopping spree was great, being recently married we can use that prize to furnish our home. As for the cash, who can't use some FREE cash??
Everyone always talks about meeting Pat and Vanna. It is really cool to finally see someone you have watched your whole life on TV. You know who else is great? The contestant department! This team of four is fantastic, really they are. They worked REALLY hard to make my wheel experience exciting and memorable. They were fantastic, and added to my great experience. (Thanks guys!!)
I hope my Wheel experience has inspired you to try out. I can honestly say, even if I didn't get on the show, the audition process was fun enough. So try out, or at least go see the show live!!
P.S- And if you're wondering................ Yes, the picture of Pat and Vanna is still framed and in my dinning room. :)
