‘I’ll Take a C for C-SUN’ : ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Wheelmobile Makes a Pit Stop on Campus
The “Wheel of Fortune” Wheelmobile spun its way into CSUN’s USU Northridge Center on Feb. 6.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m, CSUN faculty, staff and students were invited to qualify for an audition to be a contestant on “Wheel of Fortune,” the longest-running syndicated game show in the nation.
The traveling hosts presented a fun and fast-paced game as 150 Matadors tested their luck for a chance to be featured on the show, while competing for prizes like duffel bags, pins, hats and other apparel.
Participants who attended the Wheelmobile event may be contacted by producers for a callback audition, increasing the probability of getting on air.
The Wheelmobile literally gets the show on the road by traveling cross-country to cities such as Los Angeles, Phoenix and Albuquerque, among others, on the hunt for potential TV show contestants.
