Events & Entertainment | Wheelmobile Heads to Sante Fe

The Wheelmobile is back in action and heading to Santa Fe for its contestant search for televisions #1 game show.  The 36 ft. yellow Winnebago has been touring the nation and is now taking its search to Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino on Saturday and Sunday, September 7th and 8th, 2013.

The two-day contestant search welcomes all ages to attend the event, which will take place inside the Pueblo Ballroom at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino. Shows will begin at 2:00 PM, 3:30 PM and 5:00 PM, with each show lasting about one hour. Please arrive earlier in order to fill out applications and any other necessary forms. All attendees will be able to submit an application so there is no need to arrive early. Participants will be selected at random to come to the stage and audition individually.

How Does it Work?

  •  There are three Wheel of Fortune shows during each day of a Wheelmobile event. Each show lasts approximately one hour.
  • Everyone who comes to a Wheelmobile event will receive a color-coded application. The color of the application tells you what time the game you are eligible for will begin.
  • Fill out your application and drop it in a nearby receptacle. Just before show time, we will put all the applications in a big golden drum that sits on the stage.
  • When the show begins, our Wheelmobile host will pick applications at random from the drum and call participants up to the stage (in groups of five) to play the game.
  • On stage, we will do a brief interview with each contestant and play a version of the Wheel of Fortune Speed-Up Round.
  • Each person who comes up to the stage will be evaluated as a potential contestant for the show. At the end of the puzzle all contestants on stage will be awarded a prize. (Wheel of Fortune hats, t-shirts and duffle bags are just some of the stuff you might win.)
  • Wheel of Fortune is looking for good game players who are energetic, enthusiastic and fun. This is your opportunity to shine.  Show us what you’ve got!
  • After the Wheelmobile event in your area has been conducted, we will choose the people we believe will be the best candidates for the show (based on their overall performance on stage) to take part in a final round of auditions.  These final auditions will take place in the Albuquerque – Santa Fe area within about a month after our last event date.
  • We will get as many people up to the stage as we can. However, we know there will be many more folks at our Wheelmobile events than we can possibly audition. For this reason, we will reserve some slots in the final auditions for those individuals who attended Wheelmobile events but did not make it up to the stage. After all Wheelmobile events have been conducted, we will draw a number of names at random from all the applications we receive in the Albuquerque – Santa Fe area for these slots.

*If you are invited to the final auditions, you will receive a letter or email within a month of our last Wheelmobile event.

Events & Entertainment | 2013 VMA’s

If you happened to miss the Video Music Awards (VMA’s) this year, some may say you were lucky. As always we expect the unexpected, hope for a wardrobe malfunction and pray that Kanye remains in his seat. The night began with the infamous red carpet pre-show, where Miley Cyrus danced the mariachi and Kate Perry got roar-tastic in a leopard minidress from Emmanual Ungaro

The event which took place at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, was a show stopper for several reasons. The rumors were thankfully true, as N*SYNC appeared on stage, for the first time since 2001. They stole the hearts and eyes of everyone in the center singing their hit song’s, “Girlfriend” and “Bye, Bye, Bye.” But while the trip down memory lane caught headlines and had viewers at home on their feet dancing, the controversial performance by Miley Cyrus took the cake with over 100,000 tweets within minutes of her entering stage. She opened up with a performance of “Can’t Stop” surrounded by dancers in bear suits, and was then joined on stage by Robin Thicke were the two sang, “Blurred Lines.” While both songs are major hits, Miley’s twerking and tan plastic bathing suit caused jaws to drop and heads to shake.
