Conway Resident to Appear on Wheel of Fortune

After auditioning at the Wheel of Fortune open call in November at the Conway Sports Center, Jenna Morehart of Conway was chosen as a contestant and will appear on the February 5th episode of the game show.

She said she almost did not go to the audition, but her husband, Tyler, "was dying to be on the show."

"I told him, 'There is no way we're going to get on that show.' I wasn't going to go. At the last minute, he and his brother were leaving I was going to go and watch one audition."

To her surprise, her name was called in the random drawing, and she had the chance to audition.

"We left thinking, 'That was a fun Saturday night.' They told us in front of the whole crowd if they liked you, they would send you an e-mail for the final audition, but it wouldn't come for a couple of months," she said.

Time went by, and the possibility of becoming a contestant was "out of sight, out of mind," Morehart said. Then shortly after Christmas, she received an e-mail inviting her to the final audition at the Capitol Hotel in Little Rock the following week.

Wow, how cool is that?! My MIL tried to get me to go, 'cause I can always get the puzzles at home, but that's a different story than actually being there!!!

Just wanted to say THANKS for being in my TOP 25 EC drops for January. I've shared some link love in exchange. :)
