West Hollywood resident Jeremy Glenn, bought a vowel and spun his luck when he became a contestant on the Wheel of Fortune game show, airing on Tuesday, August 4, 2020, on KABC (ABC 7) at 7:30pm.
Glenn has been a West Hollywood resident off-and-on for the past 20 years. He’s been at his current WeHo address for four years. He is a graduate of Pepperdine University who works in sales and loves bowling, going to casinos, and cheering on the Houston Rockets. He has been a Wheel Watcher for years, usually tuning in with his roommate. Jeremy took the first steps to be a contestant when he applied and submitted a video through www.WheelofFortune.com. He is appearing during “UK Getaway” week on Wheel of Fortune, presented in partnership with Collette.
“Games shows are what my roommate and I enjoy watching together,” Glenn tells WEHO TIMES. “We watch Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy and $100,000 Pyramid. We sit and yell at the TV.”
Glenn says his roommate suggested he submit an audition tape for the game show and he was picked out of a cattle call last year. He flew his mother his in from Houston for the taping of the show. A friend, and of course, his roommate, were also part of the studio audience to see him win or lose at the wheel. The show was filmed on February 28. It was originally going to air on April 14, but because of COVID, the show was pushed back after the shutdown. He finally gets to see himself play on August 4th.
“I’m just going to do what I normally and watch the show with my roommate,” he said. “It was a great experience.”
Glenn will had a shot to spin the Wheel, call out consonants, and buy a vowel to solve hangman-style puzzles and a chance to win once-in-a-lifetime Collette vacations, new cars, and cash prizes. Viewers can get a behind the scenes look at how this special week of shows came together on the show’s the “Behind the Wheel” web series on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
