Two local women have been chosen from over thousands of people for a spot on Wheel of Fortune. Danielle DeLeo, of Medford, and Andrea El-Turkmani, of Providence, will appear on the “Girlfriend Getaways” episode of Wheel of Fortune, to air sometime in March.
First, the two must find a way to Los Angeles for the taping on January 30th. They are required to pay their own way there, but say that it won't stop them from this opportunity of a lifetime. "I'm thrilled to have this opportunity to be on such an iconic game show," says DeLeo.
El-Turkmani is a social worker and graduate student in Providence, and DeLeo is a customer service representative at Philbin Insurance Group in Everett and also a graduate student at Lesley University. The two met in college where they were roommates.
