UPDATE: East Lansing resident wins first two games on Wheel of Fortune
A fan of 'Wheel of Fortune' got the chance to spin the wheel.
Dorian Prier, of East Lansing, and her best friend from Texas, Ovidia, won the first two games. They came in second place walking away with $11,850.
Prier said the being on the game show was a dream come true as she grew up watching Wheel of Fortune with her parents.
She saw they were holding auditions and decided to enter.
Dorian says she sent in an audition tape for herself and her friend for the show's "Girlfriends Get Away Week," without her friend knowing. When she got an email months later asking them to go to Indianapolis for auditions, she had to convince her friend to fly out and do it with her.
They went through two rounds of auditions and then it was off to Los Angeles to be on the show.
Dorian says that the entire Wheel of Fortune team treated the contestants very well and took good care of them.
Her family got to be there in the audience to watch the taping of the show.
She said the best moment was when Vanna White came up and greeted each contestant, which she was really happy about.
You can watch the "Wheel" on WILX every weeknight at 7 p.m.
