Local woman to appear on Wheel of Fortune Wednesday

Danielle Gilseth, orginally of Warwick and now living in West Fargo, is set to appear on Wheel of Fortune Wednesday night.

"My mom and I attended a Wheelmobile event last June. A few months after the event I received an email from Wheel of Fortune inviting me to the final auditions. Two weeks after the final auditions I received a letter in the mail saying that I had been picked to be a contestant!" Gilseth said. "I was so excited, I couldn't believe this was happening to me! I love Wheel of Fortune and always wondered how people got lucky enough to be on the show and now it was my chance! My brother, Nick Walter, from Warwick, and my husband Tristan and I made the trip to Culver City, CA for my taping on March 4th.

"I must say, being on the show is a lot different than watching it at home," Gilseth added. "The wheel is so heavy, 2400 lbs! There are lights and cameras and you have what feels like a split second to make decisions. Whether I did good, bad or anywhere in between, it was a day I will never forget and an experience that I am so grateful for."
