Watch these 3 South Florida contestants on ‘Wheel of Fortune’

The special South Florida episode is part of the show’s “Great American Cities” week.

South Florida is the focus for Thursday night’s episode of “Wheel of Fortune” — and all three of the contestants buying vowels and solving the puzzles will be from Broward County.

It’s part of the show’s “Great American Cities” week. While Thursday’s episode wasn’t filmed here, showrunners say it includes segments Pat Sajak and Vanna White recorded on location “to highlight the must-see stops of South Florida.”

The contestants are:

  • Amanda Rintel of Plantation, an ice-skating coach and former competitive skater
  • Dan Shevlin of Davie, who is a Miami-Dade County firefighter and a big Dolphins fan
  • Shannon Ford of Pembroke Pines, a former Dolphins cheerleader and pageant winner who works now as a human resources manager

“Wheel of Fortune” airs weeknights at 7 p.m. on Local 10.
