Do you ever stop in a moment as you live it and realize, “Wow, one day I’m gonna really miss this?” That just happened to me while sitting at the dining room table of my little college cottage after registering for classes I will take my SENIOR year. Wow. My housemate and I had the same registration time and sat anxiously waiting for the clock to strike 9:00 a.m.
What I️’ve learned from my different experiences on TV shows is the incredible amount of clapping that goes into their production. More than anything, that is what has stuck out in my mind and left a sting on my palms. To date, I️ have been in the studio audience of The View, Good Morning America and, just recently, I auditioned for Wheel of Fortune.
I️ walked into the grand Raleigh hotel meeting room where there were maybe 50 chairs lined up in rows. At the front of the room hung a big projection screen and sat a small plastic wheel, like you would see at a raffle or cheap carnival.
A couple of months ago my mother texted me out of the blue saying that she had auditioned for Wheel of Fortune. She is a big fan and avid viewer every night with a glass of wine just after dinner. Apparently, the Wheelmobile had come to our home town and she figured, “What the heck?” For this follow-up audition, my mom was allowed to bring one guest, and I was the lucky chosen.
