The Wheelmobile team rolls into Albuquerque and Santa Fe in search of contestants to play on “Wheel of Fortune,” America’s No. 1 syndicated series. From 2-6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, the team will be at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino in Santa Fe.
Wheel of Fortune’s Wheelmobile, the show’s promotional vehicle, will be in search of game players who are energetic, enthusiastic and fun.
Viewers interested in being a contestant on an upcoming episode are invited to attend. Fans will have the opportunity to fill out an application, have his or her name drawn at random to play a simulated version of the game onstage, win unique prizes and be evaluated as a potential contestant for the broadcast version of the show.
All ages are welcome to attend the Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino Wheelmobile event. The event will take place inside the Pueblo Ballroom at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino.
Staff members from the Wheel of Fortune promotions team will begin handing out applications one hour before each show begins. Searches will be at 2 p.m., 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m., with each show lasting about an hour. Everyone who attends the event will be able to submit an application.
Participants will be selected to come to the stage and audition via a random draw.
“The Wheelmobile tour gives us the opportunity to present local viewers with a unique and personal experience with the show. It’s a way for us to thank our viewers for their long-term support, and for making the show no. 1.” Executive Producer Harry Friedman said.
The majority of contestants who appear on Wheel of Fortune come out to Wheelmobile events in their hometowns. Since its inception in 1999, the Wheelmobile has logged over 300,000 miles and has visited over 275 cities.
More than one million Wheel of Fortune fans have attended Wheelmobile events.
Wheel of Fortune airs weeknights at 6:30 p.m. on KRQE-TV. For more information on the Wheelmobile, tune into KRQE, log on to KRQE.com or visit wheeloffortune.com.
