Wanna Be on 'Wheel of Fortune'? Here's Your Chance
The Wheelmobile from the venerable TV game show will make an appearance at The Meadows Racetrack & Casino this weekend in search of contestants.
If you've ever dreamed of one day saying, "I'd like to solve the puzzle, Pat," you'll have a chance to make that a reality this weekend at The Meadows Racetrack & Casino in North Strabane Township, where producers of the "Wheel of Fortune" game show will be seeking out contestants.
The Wheelmobile—the show's promotional vehicle—will be at The Meadows from 1 to 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday "in search of good game players who are energetic, enthusiastic and fun," according to a news release.
Viewers interested in being a contestant on an upcoming episode of the show are invited to attend. They will have the opportunity to apply to have their names drawn at random to play a simulated version of the game, win prizes and be evaluated as a potential contestant for the broadcast version of the show.
"Wheel of Fortune" staffers will begin handing out applications one hour before each simulated game begins—with searches being held at 1, 2:30 and 4 p.m. (each one lasting about an hour).
"The Wheelmobile tour gives us the opportunity to present local viewers with a unique and personal experience with the show," the show's executive producer, Harry Friedman, said in a release. "It's a way for us to thank our viewers for their long-term support and for making the show (No. 1)."
The event will take place along the racetrack apron at The Meadows. In case of inclement weather, the event will move to a new covered parking structure located on the northwest side of the track.
