What is the Wheelmobile?
It's 39 feet long, 13 feet high and bright yellow. It rolls through cities, down highways and into America's heartland. Wherever it stops, huge crowds are waiting. It's giving fans all over the country the chance to try out for America's favorite game show. The Wheelmobile serves as the preliminary screening process before the final Wheel of Fortune contestant audition.
What happens at a Wheelmobile event?
Thousands of fans fill out applications and gather in front of the stage with a traveling version of the famous Wheel and Puzzle board. Applications are drawn at random throughout the event, calling individuals on stage in groups of five to participate in a brief interview, play a version of the Wheel of Fortune speed-up round and win special show-themed prizes.
The most promising candidates are invited back to participate in final auditions for the show, usually held at a later date in the Wheelmobile host city. At the final auditions, Contestant Coordinators select the individuals who will appear on the show. Last year over a million people requested the chance to audition for Wheel of Fortune. Fewer than 600 people were selected to appear on the show. For this reason, Wheel of Fortune strongly discourages you from incurring any expenses whatsoever: airfare, hotel, loss of wages, baby-sitter, car rental, etc. in order to try out for the show.
Please be aware that an appointment to attend a final audition does not guarantee you an appearance on the show. Remember that you are responsible for any expenses incurred for accommodations, travel to and from the audition site, and to and from the taping in Los Angeles (or another city.)
