11:49 a.m., Nov. 9, 2009----Chris Gage, a senior organ performance major at the University of Delaware from Rumford, R.I., will be representing UD on a College Week episode of Wheel of Fortune, scheduled to air Wednesday, Nov. 11, from 7:30-8 p.m. on WPVI-TV6.
"I had a great time auditioning and taping for Wheel of Fortune," Gage said. "I know that everyone will enjoy watching the show on Wednesday because it is going to be a very exciting episode."
A UD Honors Program student, Gage applied this past spring and was randomly selected to audition for the show in August. During the audition, Gage and his fellow college students played practice puzzles, took a written test and demonstrated their enthusiasm and spirit.
"About a week later, I got the call," Gage said, referring to being asked to be a contestant on the show. "And the rest is history."
The episode was taped in Boston on Sept. 4.
To find out how Gage did and to learn more about his experience, watch the show Wednesday night and check UDaily later this week.
