I was at the late May audition in New Orleans with my mother. We recorded a video together so we played together, though we were called on separately from the audience to get a turn for the puzzle during the first part of the audition. I solved a puzzle and got a SPIN THIS shirt. I think it had something to do with the Caribbean. Then it was time for the written test. I think I got 3 wrong. One of the puzzles was MEET AND GREET which I missolved as NEED AND GREED and I was stumped on two others. My mother and I were called for the second part of the audition, where three contestants or contestant pairs would compete against each other. We ended up solving COMFY SOFA WITH MATCHING LOVE SEAT with minimal letters, though I remember spinning for the C's after the T's were called. I thank that Vanna White present video.
A week later, we got the letter from Wheel! Now it it's STILL time for the agony of waiting! Family weeks are rare, and I don't even have hope of seeing one on the taping list, besides the Hawaii one which we missed out on. I'm not upset with wheel; it did say 18 months...
Congratulations, keep practicing. I auditioned in Denver last January & got the call to tape in October. 9 months for me to practice which paid off. One of the 2 puzzles I solved at auditions was the same “comfy sofa with matching loveseat”!
That's wheel-y unfortunate. At least waiting until Season 37 will let us win $37,000 in the Bonus Round? Or maybe it'll be the year they add Same First Name as a category or allow Proper Names back into the Bonus Round? Just trying to think positive here.
