Want to Be Vanna For a Day? Enter Wheel's New Contest

By January 4, 2011

Follow me on:

Vanna White has been a staple on Wheel of Fortune since 1982, and she still looks as fabulous as ever! If you've ever wanted to try turning letters on America's favorite game show, you're actually going to get a chance to do just that.

The "Vanna For a Day" contest kicks off tomorrow, January 5th (and will be announced on tomorrow's show) and runs through January 18th. To enter, you'll have to put together a 60-second video demonstrating why you should be, well, Vanna for a day! Show them your love of the show, talent for locating letters quickly, and of course your own versions of Vanna White's signature moves. All of the entry details will be available at WheelofFortune.com shortly.

Five finalists will be chosen from all submitted videos, and then viewers will be able to vote on their favorites. The ultimate winner of the contest will be announced on the show (and the official website) on February 24th. The prize? A flight for the winner and a companion to Los Angeles, luxury accomodations, a shopping spree and makeover, and then you're off to tape an episode of Wheel of Fortune with Pat Sajak. Whew.

If this contest were open to Canadians, I'd totally be working on my Vanna hand gestures right now. Good luck to those who enter, and if you make it into one of the coveted finalist spots, don't forget to post your link here so we can see your video!

As cute as I would be in one of those fabulous gowns, I think I’ll wait for the Pat for a Day contest.

Neither can men, it seems (trust me, I’m not trying to enter).

Of course, the winner won’t be TURNING letters but rather touching them…and it’s only for one day instead of, say, a week.

It seems like they’re looking for someone who could, conceivably, take over permanently sometime in the future — even though the show’s Twitter account has told me otherwise.
