What is the Wheelmobile?

The Wheelmobile is a 32-foot Winnebago that tours nationwide in search of contestants for televisionÔŅĹs #1 game show. The Wheelmobile team is coming your way to find contestants from the Providence area!

Where and when will the Wheelmobile events take place?
The Wheelmobile will be in the Providence area for two days of contestant searches at Warwick Mall.

When: Saturday, September 25 & Sunday, September 26 from 1 PM ÔŅĹ 5 PM

Where: Warwick Mall (In the Center Court)

              400 Bald Hill Road

              Warwick, RI 02886

We will begin handing out applications at approximately 12 PM. There is no need to arrive hours in advance of the event. Everyone who attends the events 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?

ÔŅĹ        There are three Wheel of Fortune shows at a Wheelmobile event. Each show lasts approximately one hour.

ÔŅĹ        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.

ÔŅĹ        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.

ÔŅĹ        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.

ÔŅĹ        On stage, we will do a brief interview with each contestant and play a version of the Wheel of Fortune Speed-Up Round.

ÔŅĹ        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 travel mugs are just some of the stuff you might win.)

ÔŅĹ        Wheel of Fortune is looking for good game players who are energetic, enthusiastic and fun. This is your opportunity to shine.  Show us what youÔŅĹve got!

ÔŅĹ        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 Providence area within a few months of our event date.

ÔŅĹ        We will get as many people up to the stage as we can. However, we know there will be many more folks at 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 Providence area for these slots. 

ÔŅĹ        If you are invited to the final auditions, you will receive a letter or email within a few weeks of our last Wheelmobile event.
