Transcript be exciting." 10:47a.m. — After anxiously waiting and refreshing my makeup, I go to check in with Guzman. Inside, there is an application waiting on each seat. I fill it out and patiently wait. 11:03a.m. — Greeted by O'Brien, we are ready to begin. He is joined by Jackie LaMatis, second head contestant coordinator; Suzie Rosenberg, publicist; and Harry Friedman, producer. One at a time, each of the 60 contestants this morning get a chance at playing the game. Finally, I get a chance to not only play, but to start a puzzle. After "spinning," I buy an A. I am surprised to discover there are eight of them! Unfortunately, the "wheel" then lands on bankrupt. I sit back down and continue to cheer and act disappointed at the appropriate times. 12:16 p.m.—The next step in the audition process~the written test. It consists of 16 fill-in-the- letter puzzles in four categories (with two different versions of the test, so no cheating). We have five minutes to complete as many as possible. 12:21 p.m.--Time's up! And I only finished seven! Maybe they'll take partial credit on some of the others I attempted. While the tests are being graded, we watch a promotional video about the show. After the video, O'Brien conducts a door prize drawing. I really want to win something, but no such luck. 12:46 p.m.-The tests have been graded, and the names are about to be announced for the finals round. I excitedly clap and let out a whoop of joy when my name is one of the 12 announced. I hardly expected to get this far. 12:54 p.m.-After O'Brien takes a snapshot of each finalist, we play the game in smaller groups. A few people get to play a final round of the show. Then we are told if selected, we will received a letter withing the next two weeks. 1:13 p.m.--l let out a sigh of relief-it's over. Not that it wasn't fun- ll was just a little stressful. It was a great experience and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Now all I have to do is wait. 4:56 p.m., Friday, Feb. 16--After a week of waiting, I go out to get the mail. To my delight, there is a letter from Wheel of Fortune] I race into the house to open it. "Congratulations! You have been selected as a contestant for Wheel of Fortune's College Week!" I can hardly believe it! I am prompted to return a postcard confirming my reciept of the letter. I will be notified about 15 days before my tape date of time and location. Then I will be responsible for arriving to the site and for all expenses. Well, I guess I will worry about that when the time comes. This has definitely been the experience of a lifetime! I think I'll file this one in my brain under "exciting college experiences." Lisa M. Chmiola (courtesy of The Daily Cougar, 2/20/96) I7E
