Alamedan Looking to Win Big On Wheel of Fortune

Alameda resident Jeané Blunt will be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune on Friday, Jan. 14.

Blunt works as an IT communications and licensing coordinator for the University of California and recently completed her master’s in public administration. She enjoys kayaking and cheers for the Oakland A’s in her spare time. Blunt grew up watching Wheel of Fortune and while her sister and aunt are avid Wheel Watchers, it was a friend who encouraged her to apply to be a contestant. Blunt says she called her family after receiving the news that she was selected to appear on the show. “It was a wonderful moment that I will cherish forever. My sister was screaming!” she said in a press release.

Blunt plans to pay it forward by putting some of her winnings towards expanding STEM education outreach in underrepresented communities.

Wheel of Fortune can be seen weeknights on KGO (ABC7) at 7:30 p.m. The program is filmed at Sony Pictures Studio in Culver City, Ca.
