What is the Wheelmobile?
The Wheelmobile is a 36-foot Winnebago that tours nationwide in search of contestants.
Where and when will the Wheelmobile event take place?
Two special days of contestant searches will be Nov. 17-18 at Savannah Mall, 14045 Abercorn St.
The Wheelmobile event will take place in the large upper level event space directly in front of the escalator. Patrons can enter the mall through the main entry adjacent to where the Wheelmobile will be parked on event days. The best location to park for the event will be on the lower level parking lot on the southeast side of Savannah Mall. Upon entry into Savannah Mall, proceed to the upper level via the escalator or staircase leading directly to the main entrance to the Wheelmobile event space. Applications will be distributed within the upper level retail space where the event is being conducted.
How does it work?
Applications will be handed out one hour before each show begins. Shows will begin at 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 4 p.m., 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. Participants will be selected to come to the stage and audition via a random draw.
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, all the applications go 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.
Those who make it on stage can expect a brief interview and to 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 (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, producers will choose 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 Savannah 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 in the past 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 Savannah 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.
