“Wheel Of Fortune” Is Coming To North Texas & You Could Be A Contestant!
What is the Wheelmobile?
The Wheelmobile is a 39-foot Winnebago that tours nationwide in search of contestants for television’s #1 game show. The Wheelmobile team is coming your way to find contestants in North Texas!!

Where and when will the Wheelmobile event take place?

The Wheelmobile event will take place during two special days of contestant searches.

    When: Saturday, November 17 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
    Where: Southfork Ranch*, 3700 Hogge Drive, Parker, Texas, 75002

    *Please note that there will be a $10 charge for parking. Parking for the event will be available via the Gate 4 entrance to Southfork Ranch. There will be no charge for admission to the Wheelmobile event. The event will take place inside the Oil Baron’s Ballroom located within the Events Center. Applications will be distributed inside the Lone Star Atrium. Doors to the Lone Star Atrium will open at 11 AM.

    When: Sunday, November 18 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
    Where: Music Hall at Fair Park**, 909 First Avenue, Dallas, Texas, 75210

    **Limited free parking will be available at the gated parking lot across the street from the Music Hall at Parry Avenue and Second Avenue.  The parking lot is located between First Avenue and Second Avenue at Parry Avenue.  The entrance to the parking lot is on the Second Avenue or South side of the parking lot.

    From I-30, exit Second Avenue and continue toward the traffic light at Parry Avenue.  Before reaching the traffic light at Parry Avenue, turn Left into the gated Parking Lot.  The Music Hall will be directly across the street.  Cross the street at the traffic light at Parry Avenue and First Avenue.  You will enter Fair Park at Gate 4.  Walk straight toward the circle drive area on the North side of the Music Hall.  The main entrance for the event will be on the North side of the Music Hall. Applications will be distributed in the restaurant located inside Music Hall at Fair Park.

    Additional parking will be available inside the Fair Park grounds at the cost of $10 per car.  Enter into the Park at either Gate 4 at Parry Avenue and First Avenue or at Gate 5 at Robert B. Cullum Boulevard and Grand Avenue.  Parking attendants will be located at both gates.  DART Rail is also available to Fair Park.  The Green Line train drops off at Fair Park at Exposition Street just north of Gate 4 and the Music Hall.

We will begin handing out applications one hour before each show begins. Shows will begin at 1:00 PM, 2:30 PM, and 4:00 PM, with each show lasting about an hour. There is no need to arrive hours in advance of the event. Everyone who attends the event will be able to submit an application. We will select participants to come to the stage and audition via a random draw.

How does it work?

There are three Wheel of Fortune shows during each day of a Wheelmobile event. Each show lasts approximately one hour.
    Everyone who comes to a Wheelmobile event will receive a color-coded application. The color of the application tells you what time the game you are eligible for will begin.
    Fill out your application and drop it in a nearby receptacle. Just before show time, we will put all the applications in a big golden drum that sits on the stage.
    When the show begins, our Wheelmobile host will pick applications at random from the drum and call participants up to the stage (in groups of five) to play the game.
    On stage, we will do a brief interview with each contestant and play a version of the Wheel of Fortune Speed-Up Round.
    Each person who comes up to the stage will be evaluated as a potential contestant for the show. At the end of the puzzle all contestants on stage will be awarded a prize. (Wheel of Fortune hats, t-shirts and duffle bags are just some of the stuff you might win.)
    Wheel of Fortune is looking for good game players who are energetic, enthusiastic and fun. This is your opportunity to shine.  Show us what you’ve got!
    After the Wheelmobile event in your area has been conducted, we will choose the people we believe will be the best candidates for the show (based on their overall performance on stage) to take part in a final round of auditions.  These final auditions will take place in the North Texas area within a few months after our last event date.
    We will get as many people up to the stage as we can. However, we know there will be many more folks at our Wheelmobile events than we can possibly audition. For this reason, we will reserve some slots in the final auditions for those individuals who attended Wheelmobile events but did not make it up to the stage. After all Wheelmobile events have been conducted, we will draw a number of names at random from all the applications we receive in the North Texas area for these slots.
    If you are invited to the final auditions, you will receive a letter or email within a couple months of our last Wheelmobile event.

What are the contestant eligibility requirements?
You must be at least 18 years of age to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune.
    You are not eligible to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune if you work for, or are related to, anyone who works for Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc., Sony Pictures Television Inc., Sony Pictures Television International, Quadra Productions, Inc., CBS Television Distribution Group, game show prize suppliers, KTVT-TV (including its advertisers and affiliated radio stations), or any TV stations or networks broadcasting Wheel of Fortune or Jeopardy!.
    You are not eligible to appear on Wheel of Fortune if you have appeared on another game show, dating-relationship show or reality show in the last year or three game shows, dating-relationship shows or reality shows in the last ten years.
    You are not eligible to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune if you have appeared on any version of the show – including the daytime version (with Pat Sajak, Chuck Woolery, Bob Goen, or other hosts), Teen Week (or any special week), or “Wheel 2000.”
    All expenses incurred while interviewing and (if selected as a contestant) appearing on the show, including airfare, hotel, etc. are the responsibility of the applicant.
    A contestant audition does not guarantee a spot on the show. The applicant understands that Wheel of Fortune is under no obligation to use him/her as a contestant.  It is entirely at the producer’s discretion.
