Quad Cities Native Appearing on Wheel of Fortune Next Week
One of Davenport's own will be making an appearance on Wheel of Fortune on their Memorial Day episode.
Tyler Wentworth, originally from Davenport, will be a contestant on the show Monday, May 31st, 2021, competing for cash prizes and vacations.
Graduating from Central College, he currently is living in San Diego after he moved across the country to work as director of social media for a men's grooming company.
He spends his time thrifting, collecting "mid-century modern décor" and being active on social media.
Tyler grew up watching Wheel of Fortune during dinnertime and decided to apply on the show's website.
He had to make it through a Zoom audition where he had to compete against other contestants in the game to see if he had what it takes to be on the actual show.
Tyler hopes to win enough money to fund his dream of being a homeowner in the California desert.
If you're interested in trying out for Wheel of Fortune, head over to the show's website and fill out a form to be in the running for a virtual audition. If you can make it past that step, you're in the running to be on the show, where everyone wins something. No matter what, you get to go home with $1,000 if you get picked to be on the show.
We know the Quad Cities loves Wheel of Fortune. You sure loved when we talked about the controversial rule that robbed a contestant a few months ago. Who can forget when Pat Sajak gave away the answer to the final puzzle recently, and of course, when he got a little inappropriate with a previous contestant.
