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.

According to Mosler, one of the main speakers at the annual Greenbrier Chamber of Commerce banquet Saturday, businesses will come to Arkansas if the state is viewed as a winner.
Ideas were shared about how to make Arkansas more viable in the business world. Oh yeah, the event was held at the Greenbrier Junior High School cafeteria.
Way to get the image thing kicked off in the right direction.
A few years ago, after moving to Arkansas, I was going around the horn (flipping channels) and landed on The Tonight Show. Jay Leno was doing his opening monologue, and while I don't remember the joke, the punchline was, "They have computers in Arkansas?"
I don't know about the rest of the state, but here in Conway, the business community continues to grow. Recently, Hewlett Packard announced plans open a state-of-the art facility here.
Shortly thereafter, Southwestern Energy, a natural gas exploration and production company, announced it will locate a regional headquarters in Conway. That's all you can ask for in a depressed economy.
Next year, maybe they'll find a better location for the Greenbrier Chamber banquet. I hear the McDonald's dining area is available.
