Wheel of Fortune Is Coming to Faneuil Hall in Search of Contestants
Attention all Wheel watchers: it’s time to take your puzzle-solving skills from the couch to the Wheelmobile.
Wheel of Fortune‘s 36-foot Winnebago is rolling into Boston in search of its next batch of contestants. The bright yellow RV that tours the country will make a stop in Faneuil Hall on October 8 and 9. There, fans can fill out an application, enter to play a round of Wheel of Fortune on stage, and win prizes. Lucky players will be evaluated as a potential contestant for the television show.
According to a release, the majority of contestants who appear on Wheel of Fortune attend Wheelmobile events in their hometowns—more than one million Wheel watchers have checked in at the famed game show on wheels. Since the Wheelmobile hit the road in 1999, it’s logged more than 350,000 miles, traveling to more than 300 cities across the nation.
During the weekend Faneuil Hall visit, contestant searches will be held at noontime, 1:30 p.m., and 3 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. Everyone who shows up will be able to submit an application, but players who’d like to compete on stage and audition for the show will be chosen in a random draw.
Unfortunately, neither Pat Sajak nor Vanna White will be around to direct any wheel spinning or letter revealing.
The Wheelmobile will be parked between Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market on Saturday, October 8 and Sunday, October 9. See faneuilhallmarketplace.com for more information.
