This Week's Contestant

Hi! I'm Lillian from Olive Branch, MS. I have watched Wheel of Fortune for as long as I can remember, so basically my whole life! My Dad has always loved watching the show (I think because he likes Vanna)! I can remember as a child sitting in my Daddy's lap watching the show with him. I became pretty good at solving the puzzles through all my years of watching. My Dad would always say, "We have got to get you on that show!"
Well I never thought I actually would! I got a letter for my second audition in Knoxville, TN. I was so excited, but I almost missed my audition! My sister and I decided to make a little 2-day trip out of it. So we drove to Nashville and picked up her best friend. We were stopped in traffic in Nashville for a long while, and finally heard that the traffic would not be moving for hours! We finally detoured around the stopped traffic and were headed to Knoxville. We were about 30 minutes away and were all hungry for lunch. We were trying to figure out where we were going to eat... THEN we realized that the time changed! We had no time to eat because I had to be at my audition in about 45 minutes, not an hour and 45 minutes! So I made it to the audition 15 minutes before I had to be there and made it through all the stages that day, and then made it all the way to sunny California!
Watch me spin on January 14th!
