NOW: Want to be a contestant on the Wheel of Fortune? Here’s what you need to know

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Wisconsinites have a chance to win big on the hit game show Wheel Of Fortune Thursday and Friday.

The Wheelmobile travels across the country to find contestants for the show. They’ve been to more than 300 cities across the country. The mobile game show will be at Steinhafels in Oak Creek Thursday and Friday.

There are two traveling hosts that play Pat Sajak and Vanna White, who are the hosts of the game show on national television. Host Mallory Harden said it’s something she loves to do.

“We get to stand up on this stage and witness everyone bring their ‘A game,’ they bring their personalities,” Harden said.

When attendees arrive, each person will fill out an application. Groups will then be selected to come on the stage and play the Wheel of Fortune Speed-Up Round. The contestant's performance will determine if they make it on the show.

“We are looking for a lot of personality. You've seen our contestants, they have a lot of fun on our stage, they stand out on the show,” Traveling Host Marty Lublin said.

There will be three shows a day starting at 4 p.m. Summer Barners is a coordinator for the event and Sales Manager at Steinhafels. She said they’re expecting thousands of people to come in the two days. While people may be eager to line up outside, Barners said it is not necessary to line up very early because applications will be chosen at random.

“It is all random so there really isn't a need to come early. You can come two or three o’clock in the afternoon and get in line,” Barners said.

The traveling hosts said they hope to help someone get closer to spinning the wheel on national television on a show they may have watched all their life.

“It's on their bucket list and our goal is to help fulfill that dream and make those dreams come true,” Lublin said.

You can watch Wheel of Fortune weeknights at 6:30 p.m on CBS 58.
