This week Wheel of Fortune is hosting Dads and Grads week. The show created the week’s theme to celebrate students graduating this month, and the positive father role models in their lives. Wheel of Fortune’s website explained that the dad and grad teams will be paying for a pair of Nissans and amazing vacations to Hawaii, Florida, and Scotland. The show also stated they are going to give away lots of cash (to pay back student loans, of course).
Rachel and her father, Paul, were one of the lucky pairs selected to participate in the event. Rachel felt the audition was nerve racking because of all the teams they were up against, but when she called her father to see what the results were, he let out the typical announcer’s rendition of “Wheeeeeeeel ooooof Fooooooortune!” to let her know they were selected. Rachel is excited to compete with her dad on Wednesday’s episode this week. You can read more about Rachel’s experience in the audition process at the Wheel of Fortune Contestant Blog.
Tune in this week to catch this special event honoring fathers and graduates with the show’s hosts, Pat Sajak and Vanna White. For Central Florida residents, the show airs at 7:30 p.m. on ABC. Check your local listings for showtimes near you.
