Quick, sell it on eBay!

I'll give you $999 dollars!

Sold! I'll PM you my PayPal info so you can pay me before you realize I'm not the OP.

That won't work. Paypal always sides with the consumers, so pinkiepieisbestpony can just get his money back whenever he wants. You should demand to be paid in bitcoins...through the darkweb too.

Darkweb or not being paid in btc it's still on the block chain to see

Living in LA, I’ve been to tons of live studio recordings of shows like these but none have been as welcoming as Wheel of Fortune. They’re more laid back, the guy who announces the prizes is the one who hypes up the crowd instead of some random guy, they do tons of giveaways for prizes and they make it a fun experience overall. Also the audience size is small so you’re likely to be close to the contestants’ families. I really love seeing the families of the winners get so excited as their son/daughter/husband/wife/parent gets on the podium of the bonus round!!!

The wedges look bigger on TV.

4.8k points · 6 months agoGilded1

The camera adds $25

For real, though, the whole set looks bigger on TV. The wheel is only about 6 feet across.

Source: was a contestant in 2014.

Me too! 2017

Can we get an AMA since there's two contestants here?

  1. How did you go about getting on the show?

  2. Did you have to do any sort of rehearsals or agree to anything interesting before being on the show?

  3. How is it filmed, like are there retakes if you mess up really badly?

  4. How was the general experience being on the show?

  5. Did you win?

  1. Applied online after the closing credits one night mentioned they wanted contestants from my area.

  2. There were some legalities, the big ones they make clear at the audition.

  3. They tape six shows in one day. After a morning of rules and practice on the set with the other contestants from that week, we were assigned to a trio of contestants. Then we drew numbers to see which order we would be recorded in. No retakes. In commercials they touch up your makeup.

  4. If I could do it 20x over, I would.

  5. No bonus land, but I won a prize puzzle! Trip to London and Paris!

What was the trip like?

It was a tour by Collette, their advertiser. We had to pay for our own lunch, but everything else was included. Collette offered excursions as they did with their other guests (which we promptly took advantage of). 3.5 in London, 3.5 in paris. Saw major sights. The Collette people honored two free flights. We tacked Ireland on (done on our own) for six days after the tour. We paid for flight from Paris to Cork. Prize took care of trans-Atlantic flights which I thought was super cool and super nice of them to do.

That's really much better than I've always assumed the trip prizes on wheel of fortune would be.

They really didn’t mess around with the prize. Seeing the process from start to finish, I think it’s probably a daunting task to find 1. quality players who 2. represent a cross-section of America that can 3. take time from work AND pay their way out to California. Without contestants, there is no show, and I think they take this seriously. Anyone I encountered throughout the process was so nice, so easy to work with, and understanding.

Most of the trip prizes are just week-long island resort stays. Colette weeks have more inclusive (and typically more expensive) trips.

They tape six shows in one day.

That sounds exhausting.

What were some of the legalities?

Taping rights, acknowledging you didn’t have help getting through audition process, you didn’t have answers to puzzles, acknowledging you’ve never been on show (or any version of the show, think: Wheel 2000) before. Those were the big ones (ever see “Quiz Show”? May have taken place in ‘60s, but that has some long-lasting effects on game show operations).

Also a contestant. 2004.

  1. Applies at wheeloffortune.com. Randomly picked to go audition. Chosen from like 100 people to fly out and be on show.

  2. You play a practice round before taping. Everyone gets a chance to spin the wheel before taping.

  3. There are! In fact I got to play the bonus round twice. The first time I thought maybe I had said the answer. But I hadn’t. So they gave me a new puzzle since it was a cluster.

  4. It was a blast. Pat and Vanna super friendly.

  5. I won $52,755 without winning the bonus round.

Hi, contestant form 2014 chiming in!

  1. I submitted an application online. They let me know when they were in my area and asked me to send in an audition video. From there, I was invited to the auditions.

  2. We did get to practice with the wheel and calling out letters before tapings started. The legal paperwork was quite significant.

  3. As another commenter noted, six shows are filmed in a day. I did see a puzzle have to be thrown out because Pat told a contestant she had the puzzle correct but the actual answer was one letter off (I don’t remember exactly what it was, but it was a strange situation). All of the contestants filming that episode got $1,000 (I think that was the amount) for the puzzle being thrown out.

  4. It was so awesome. The WOF staff are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

  5. Yes, $6,000! It was a huge deal to me at the time as a grad student with a wedding coming up in a few months.

6. ___ ___ _____ ___ _______?

Well this is defenitely a souvenir wedge since $1,000 wedges never looked like that, so it may be scaled down to fit in the mail better. But I will say that everything on set looked much smaller in person, so if it is scaled down, it's not by more than an inch or two.

They had the retired $10,000 wedge framed on the wall backstage, and I thought it was a scaled down replica, too, until I saw the wheel itself.

EDIT: It looks like he's holding it at an angle in the left pic, too. I think it may actually be to scale with the real wheel wedges.

Can we AMA this? Do they tell you you cannot whip the wheel around?

I can answer questions here if you like. If you want a full-blown AMA I may be able to get some fellow contestants together for a group AMA. They'll have some more interesting stories to tell.

They do teach us the proper procedure for spinning the wheel, and we all did practice spins before taping started.

The procedure for spinning is as follows:

1.) Reach out as far to the right as you can with your dominant hand.

2.) Grab the top half of a spoke and pull it towards you. (Grabbing the bottom half is bad because your hand will hit your arrow, and the arrows of players to your right if you're not in the red position.)

3.) Push the spoke away from you to your left and let go.

29 points · 6 months ago

Thanks! One follow up question...does it feel like a heavy duty piece of gaming equipment, or something you would find at a fly-by-night carnival?

It may not be as big as it looks on TV, but it's definitely as heavy as it looks. Even with people spinning it as hard as they can, most people on average fall short of a full rotation. It definitely felt like it was built to last, that's for sure.

As for the wedges themselves, they're grouped up and separated into quadrants that crew members swap out between rounds.

Fun fact: There's also a red arrow in the green center of the wheel that you can't see on tv! It's projected onto the wheel from above with a laser and points to the active player.

I’ve got a few if you don’t mind? How long was your experience? How many do they shoot in a day? How long from taping to airing? What did you win?

How long was your experience? How many do they shoot in a day?

They shoot 5 to 6 episodes a day. The other contestants and I arrived at the studio around 7am, and I stayed for a few tapings after my episode, then left with my family at about 2 or 3pm (though taping continued until about 6 or 7).

The first half of the day is rules and paperwork. An independent auditor goes over eligibility rules, then the producers go over game rules. There's hair and makeup, we go on set to practice spinning, take pictures, and film affiliate promos, and then we get our groupings and randomly draw for tape order and player positions. The first group goes on stage for a few test puzzles to make sure all the equipment is working properly, then taping starts around noon.

Taping a single episode itself takes about a half hour. Unless there's a hiccup in transition, the breaks between rounds are about as long as the actual commercial breaks you see.

How long from taping to airing?

It was a little under 2 months from tape to air for my episode. The first 5 episodes from my tape date aired together as a theme week. The 6th episode aired a couple months later as part of a week comprised of other 6th episodes. (Astute Wheel Watchers will notice these weeks because the sets are different every day, and sometimes there's a random team episode thrown in because they had 6 sets of pairs for couples week or something like that.)

What did you win?

About $21k cash and prizes, including the prize puzzle trip. I made it to the bonus round, but didn't get my bonus puzzle.

Did you have to give half of that in taxes?

It sounds like you had a great experience. Thanks for the reply and have a great weekend.

That's crazy! Thanks, I really hope an AMA comes up some day.

I was on the show back in 2012. I found that if I gave the wheel a full solid spin (6ft, 180 lb guy) it was nearly one full revolution on the dot. When I played, there was a "safe" section of the wheel (5-6 consecutive money wedges, no bankrupt or lose a turn) I basically stayed in that section the entire game. When you see Pat hitting the $5000 space with regularity with the final spin it's not random, it's muscle memory. If he wanted to, he could probably hit it most every time.

As a lefty, can you spin the wheel counter-clockwise?

This question has ruined me for 31 years.

Nope. Clockwise only.

8 more replies

Good luck trying! I filmed in December and I couldn’t get the wheel to go even halfway around. It weighs 2400lb, but it’s much smaller than what you imagine it to be.

I’ll AMA this!

If anything it’s the opposite. They want stronger spins. That thing is heavy (I compare it to an exceptionally heavy door). Fun fact: not sure how often they clean it. My hand smelled a little funky afterward lol.

It's a little known fact, but to increase the effect you can only apply to the show if you are under 5 feet tall.

Not sure if joking, but that's a replica. They haven't used $1000 wedges since long before they added the white outlines to the numbers, and I'm pretty sure cash wedges have never been two-tones like that.

Could be old stock from back in the day, used specifically for these kinds of requests. I mean, why use an in-service wedge when there are a bunch of these cardboard ones likely sitting in a box in the prop warehouse?

Yeah, I'd assume they make these specifically for fan promotion like this, but it's definitely not designed to be used on the actual Wheel itself. For one, it's like half the size of a real wedge.

I know the feeling that's awesome for your son! Mario Lemieux sent me a letter and autograph when I wrote to him as a kid for a school project. I'm from Pittsburgh FYI. I'll never be that happy again haha

I met Jerome Bettis at Dave and Buster’s. He kicked my ass at Super Shot. He was nice enough to sign a photo of him in a Steelers plaque I won out of the Winner’s Circle.

I want a rematch at Super Shot. I know I could take on any Steeler at any game at D&B now.

I met Jerome too! He autographed my football and said hello. He knew the guy in line behind me and was talking to him so I was a tad disappointed I didn't get to talk to him much. I don't even have the football anymore because I was really young and liked playing with it and I lost it. I'm glad you had a cool experience with da bus.

I can definitely remember feeling like this kid. I used to request autographs from NHL stars. It was very exciting getting an envelope with an NHL logo.

I'm a Pens fan and, ironically, never got any response from the Pens via mail (in the '90s). Lemieux is my white whale.

However, I did receive very nice autograph replies from Teemu Selanne (Jets), Pavel Bure (Canucks), Scott Stevens, and Wayne Gretzky twice.

Gretzky was the best at this fan outreach. My first mailed request was wrong because I wrote the arenas phone number instead of zip code. Once I realized that, I mailed in another, this time with a card enclosed. Months later, the card came back autographed. Another month or two later still, the original request with no zip code was also answered -- with a pretty signed 8×10.

Great times.

Mario Lemieux is legendary. I remember playing the old NHL games on my SNES, Lemieux would always trash my team. (Damn you, LeMix!)

Damn, Super Mario!?!? That is cool!

Likewise! Wheel of Fortune is great!

My father took me to a rodeo (a rarity where I live) when I was four. Afterwards we went to the stable area and I met Clayton Moore, the Lone Ranger from TV. He signed my program and told me that he had rode one of Silver's children, Silver couldn't be there.

Forty-plus years later, I remember every single second I was there with him.

I wasn't an adorable child but rather a tipsy college kid when I met Adam West at BatFest and it still was SO FREAKING COOL.

He's still the best Batman to me. When you're young you don't get the jokes, that's just Batman. Although I like him in other stuff, he's got a good sense of humor, I wish I hadn't see those things.

I've found it's a good policy is to know as little as possible about your childhood heroes, you'll only learn they're human and disappointing in some way. I don't want to know about their politics, their sexual peculiarities, or their questionable business practices.

I know nothing at all about Clayton Moore, and I'm perfectly happy. He's the Lone Ranger, the Lone Ranger was real, and that's it.

2 more replies

I....I never considered that they update the wheel. I mean, it’s obvious when I think about it, but the idea had never crossed my mind.

So much on Wheel of Fortune has changed.

I wish they would change a few more things though:

*Allow skill spinning. From what I remember from the one Redditor's AMA about beating the fuck out of Wheel of Fortune, you're not allowed to aim for a specific wedge (but you're allowed to avoid a specific area of the wheel.) I want to see someone hit the $5,000 over and over and over.

*Move the $2,500, $3,500, and $5,000 away from the Bankrupt to remove the penalty for attempting to skill spin and being just over.

*The Wild Card should, in addition to its current powers, negate a Lose a Turn OR a Bankrupt.

*Create a Super-Jackpot, using all the money, prizes, and half-cars that anyone ever loses to a Bankrupt. Start it at $100,000, and have that replace the $100,000 wedge in the bonus round. For every two half cars that people have and lose, add another car of about $15,000 in value to the jackpot.

*Bring back the fucking Free Spin token (in addition to leaving Free Play on the wheel.)

*Require that Pat Sajak attempt to hit the $5,000 space on the Final Spin - particularly when he is the first one to spin in Round 4 and the wheel is set up in prime position for him to do so!

I loved Wheel of Fortune at his age too! (been around a loooong time). My head would have exploded.

I never really watched it much but when my son was young we'd watch the CBS news and it would come on right after that. It really helped him learn his letters quickly so we just kind of rolled with it, I'll bet that show has helped a lot of kids that way.
