We performed a number of rounds of the video game, and the casting directors would convey to us to job our voices and how to solution appropriately. Then, there was a composed check with puzzles like you’d see in the reward spherical. We took a swift break, and when we arrived back again, they narrowed the team down to 18. About a few months later, I got a letter in the mail stating I experienced been picked to be on the exhibit! I flew out on a Thursday, taped Friday, and returned dwelling Saturday. They tape 6 reveals a working day, 40 times a calendar year. Vanna White was SO awesome. She came out in her jogging pants and a T-shirt to say hi to everyone and reminded us to obtain vowels.”

The total early morning was used touring the studio, going about principles, training with the buzzer and the wheel, and likely above our intros. All the things was spelled out — each individual classification and each video game show legislation. Then, they break up us into teams of a few, and we went to set to start out taping.
