Couple auditions

Usually I leave auditions to the faux tweets. But with game show news slowing down as the weekend nears, I might as well note a couple of tryouts for Wheel of Fortune and Family Feud. After all, these are two of the Big Three syndies. And unlike Jeopardy, you don't have to know ten tons of trivia...or even how to hop around the board in an irritating manner.

The Wheelmobile will roll into North Myrtle Beach April 26-27. This happens to be Vanna's birthplace, and the local website appears proud of the fact. Audition master Marty Lublin will look for hopeful Wheel contestants on a technical college's quadrangle. Twelve to fourteen lucky people will be chosen for a final round of auditions to be held several months later. Nobody's saying if Vanna will show up, but I wouldn't count on it. She's got that yarn business, right Pat?

Meanwhile, Family Feud hits Charleston March 29-30 for would-be feudin' and fussin' folks. The show will also take video applications, if you can't make the actual audition. Just send a three to five minute family video that is a laugh riot and proves you're somewhat familiar with the format. And remember that they want families who stand out, one goofy way or another.
