Alice Walters is excited about her debut on 'Wheel of Fortune' but she’s not certain if she wants to watch herself.
Wheel of Fortune (often known simply as Wheel) is an American television game show created by Merv Griffin that debuted in 1975. The show features a competition in which contestants solve word puzzles, similar to those used in Hangman, to win cash and prizes determined by spinning a giant carnival wheel. 1 1974 (Pilot) 2 1975–1976 3 1976–1983 4 1983–1989 5 1989–1992 6 1992–1994 7 1994–1995 8 1995–1997 9 1997–19–19–20–20–20–20–20–20–20–20–20–20–20–20–20–20–20–20-2018.

Wheel Of Fortune 2005'I was there with my sister, Dorothy Dutra, who lives on Kaua‘i, but I don’t know what happened. There were so many pauses during the taping.'
Walters, a sales and reservations employee at Outrigger Hotels, and her sister, who works at a financial institution on the Garden Island, are among the first islanders appearing and competing in the first of 10 Hawai‘i-filmed 'Wheel of Fortune' shows, taped in Waikiki last month, that will begin airing at 6:30 p.m. today on KHON-2.
The syndicated game shows, with Pat Sajak as host and featuring letter-turner Vanna White, will showcase Island competitors eager to solve puzzles amid a tropical backdrop. This week’s programs, themed 'Family Week in Hawai‘i,' pairs relatives (parent-child, or siblings) competing for cash and prizes, from a mammoth set erected on the beach of the Hilton Hawaiian Village’s Rainbow Towers. Next week’s shows, 'Hawai‘i Week,' will depict individual Island residents competing.

'I think it’s 50 percent skill and 50 percent luck,' said Walters, who is a nightly 'Wheel' watcher. 'At the taping, you have to be oblivious to all that’s happening around you, and concentrate on the puzzle. For instance, a helicopter flew above the night of our taping, and everybody waved; Miss America (Angela Perez Baraquio) was a guest, too.'
Walters and Dutra were among 10,000 initial applications yearning to spin the 'Wheel' last December. Through an audition process, the field was whittled down to 800, then the finalists for on-camera competition.
The tapings last month were the third in the Islands and the second at the Hilton Waikiki site. Two years ago, the production visited the same beach; in 1996, 'Wheel' spinners competed at the Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Big Island.
The winter visits are deliberate, as are the February air dates — during the sweeps — because 'Wheel'-watchers on the Mainland typically are experiencing frigid weather and tourism officials hope Hawai‘i’s balmy trades, and sunny weather will induce them to plan a visit to the Islands. As a travel industry employee, Walters said: 'What ‘Wheel of Fortune’ does for the Hawai‘i travel industry is tremendous, a big boost.'

'It’s such a conversation piece, when your family and friends know you’re going to be on,' said Walters. 'It was a great experience.'
