Wheel of Fortune’s Wheelmobile, the show’s promotional vehicle, will be in the Baltimore area searching for contestants to play on America’s Game®. The open auditions will take place Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9 at noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. at the Maryland State Fairgrounds.
Attendees will have the opportunity to show off their personality and puzzle solving skills in front of Wheel of Fortune staff and be evaluated as a contestant for the show’s upcoming 37th season. The event will be hosted by the show’s traveling team, bringing the fun and excitement of Wheel of Fortune to local fans. Those interested in auditioning will fill out an application, have his or her name drawn at random to play a simulated version of the game onstage, and walk away with unique prizes.
The Wheel of Fortune promotions team will begin handing out applications one hour before each show begins and each show will last approximately one hour. Anyone who submits a completed application has the chance to be called onstage for a short interview and speed round of the game or selected at random to be invited to a future final round of auditions when the show’s contestant producers return to the area.
For nearly 20 years, the Wheelmobile has been making fans’ dreams come true. “Every year, Wheel of Fortune receives over 1 million inquiries from viewers who want to be contestants,” says Executive Producer Harry Friedman. “The Wheelmobile was created to give people all over the country an opportunity to realize that dream.” In fact, most contestants who appear on Wheel of Fortune are discovered at Wheelmobile events in their hometowns.
The Wheelmobile event and parking at the Fairgrounds is free of charge. Attendees should enter the Maryland State Fairgrounds through the York Road Entrance located on the East side of the property. Vehicles will be directed to the parking lot closest to the South side of the Cow Palace. The Wheelmobile event will be held on the South side of the Cow Palace. Applications for a chance to audition to be a contestant will be distributed inside the Cow Palace. For an alternative method of transportation, the MTA Light Rail line also runs adjacent to the Fairgrounds. The 38-foot Winnebago Wheelmobile will be positioned next to the main entrance for the event.
Wheel of Fortune airs weeknights at 7:30 p.m. on FOX 45. For more information on the Wheelmobile, tune into FOX 45, log on to foxbaltimore.com or visit wheeloffortune.com.
