Whereas I am watching the present this week (we by no means miss it) I’m wondering what occurred to the New Orleans contestants after the present. When a contestant wins a visit, I say, “I hope she was in Paris when Katrina hit.”
Have you ever ever been in a hurricane or a twister? I believed so. They’re scary!
The disaster continues to be on in New Orleans. After I known as down there the opposite day to speak to the hospital, the strains had been very busy. Whereas ready for somebody to take my name, directions came visiting the road on find out how to shield you from doable ailments within the space. The catastrophe continues to be on and it’s actual. So take the benefit of Wheel matching your donation to the Pink Cross.
You may learn in regards to the contestants on the WOF web site. That is the place I discovered WOF. Do you know it takes 150 individuals to make the present a hit?
I examine Amy.
Amy has a present diary on the WOF web site. (http://www.wheeloffortune.com/contestant_diary.php)
She stated, “For so long as I can bear in mind, I’ve watched Wheel of Fortune and dreamed of being a contestant. My mother would all the time say to me, “Amy, you might be so good at this present; we should always fly you out to California so that you may be on it.” Little did I do know that at some point my dream would come true!”
All of us have that dream, do not we? Everyone knows we might make a zillion bucks if we might simply get on WOF.
Amy lives in Lafayette, about two hours from New Orleans. She stated, “My expertise started after I went to the web site and noticed that WOF was coming to New Orleans. I turned ecstatic and instantly crammed out a type to turn into a future contestant. Since New Orleans is barely 2 hours away from the place I stay, I figured there could be no downside for me to go and check out on the market, and it could be a lot simpler than flying to Los Angeles.”
No person can say that Amy is just not a thinker.
Amy stated that she by no means thought she would be capable to check out for the present, not to mention be a contestant. However she received notified that she might check out.
She stated, “We crammed out a questionnaire about ourselves and so they took a Polaroid of us. After that, we performed a number of rounds of a simulated WOF recreation the place we received to select letters and present them how effectively we might play. They saved stressing for us to have an enormous, loud voice and to name the letters rapidly. Then, we took a 5 minute written take a look at the place we needed to fill in puzzles that had lacking letters.”
I like to recommend that to organize your self for WOF you exit to the fields and yell to the cows: “C! B! L!”
Once you get that down, yell: “R! N! S!”
If you do not have a handy subject with cows, you’ll be able to come out to Idaho. Now we have numerous them as does Wisconsin, and many others. Make do together with your city park if vital. Do not get discouraged in all this!
Amy determined that she did not make it. She waited and waited and waited.
Then at some point, she received a name. That was the day she went BANANAS!
I am sorry for that irrational exuberance. Do you know that it was 1997 when Alan Greenspan stated that? Time flies!
Amy had a cellphone which allowed her to take the WOF name in her automotive.
I as soon as made an oath to by no means purchase a cellphone. Wait a minute whereas I’m going out and purchase one!
Amy was in a thigmagin till the day lastly got here to be on the present.
She stated, “I went dwelling and downloaded the web model of WOF and performed it religiously. I additionally made positive to observe each episode I might presumably watch to organize for my huge day. It felt like a lifetime, however the weekend of the taping lastly got here. I couldn’t eat or sleep the night time earlier than as a result of I used to be so nervous about being on TV. I simply prayed that I might not make a idiot of myself in entrance of hundreds of thousands of individuals.”
Amy caught me! I stated zillions of individuals. Who is correct?
You should admire Amy for her preparation. Amy stated that the wheel was very exhausting to show. (That is why they bring about in these NBA stars to assist flip it.) Her primary downside was her anxiousness. She stated that the present workers and the opposite contestants had been there to assist!
Listed here are Amy’s final phrases, “We determined collectively that we’d tape one of the best present of the day! It was a blast and I’ll always remember that day for the remainder of my life. If you wish to see how I did, watch me on November 10th!”
We’ll be watching, Amy!
