Miriam has been a Wheel Watcher her whole life and would watch daily with her family. She applied to be a contestant at WheelofFortune.com and participated in a virtual audition. “The virtual audition was so much fun!

She hopes to put some work into her new house and donate to those impacted by the pandemic with any winnings she is lucky enough to take home.

 WHERE TO WATCH: Weeknights on KABC (ABC7) at 7:30PM.
