The Final Audition!

Today was the big day for the Wheel of Fortune final audition!! I think one of my biggest accomplishments of the day was getting downtown to the place I was supposed to be, find parking, and be on time! hehe...

It was a very fun day, but kind of nerve racking at the same time. They had all the hopeful contestants in a room and had puzzles up on a projector screen. At first a  lady would randomly call out names, that person would call a letter and if they got it correct they got to keep playing. We did that until everyone had been at least one time. I am proud to say that I called the correct letters and solved the puzzle on my turn!! Hurray!!

Here's my spoils for solving the puzzle...a scary keychain of Pat!

Here's me and Pat!

Then they handed out a written test! Whew, talk about makin everybody sweat (even more, lol)... This paper had puzzles under different categories. The puzzles only had a few letters filled in and based on what was there you had to solve as many as possible in 5 minutes. Those 5 minutes went by so fast! Those puzzles were really hard, but I did manage to get several of them.

After the written test, they graded them and decided who they wanted to stay for further auditioning and more game play. I was so happy when they called my name! This time they called 6 people at a time who stood up front and played the game. We had to pretend we were spinning the wheel, call letters and buy vowels. I was able to solve the puzzle when my turn came up!!

After each group had been through a couple of puzzles they had everyone talk about themselves a little bit and took polaroid pictures of us. They said we'll find out in 2 weeks by mail if we made it or not! Thanks for everyone who's rootin me on! I hope to make the show!!

I'll let everyone know how it turns out!
