Sarah Schultz had been trying to get on "Wheel of Fortune" since before she went to college at Michigan State University. She had tried out a couple of times, including near East Lansing, but hadn't gotten the call to come on one of America's most popular game shows.
That all changed, however, when she tried out for the third time. She passed the written test and was asked to stick around so producers could get to know her more -- about as well as it can go. Then she was left to wait, potentially up to 18 months, to see if she would get plucked from the contestant pool to get on the show. A couple of weeks after the tryout, she got the nod.
Schultz was flown out to Los Angeles for a taping, which forced her to take a little break from her golf fashion business, GolfHer, and working as the Director of the Women's Division of 2GG Apparel, which donates its proceeds to charity. The mission of 2GG is a great fit with Sarah, who is one of the kindest and friendliest people you'll meet -- not only in golf, but anywhere.
Schultz's "Wheel" episode aired nationwide on Monday, and she came in second place, actually earning more cash than the person who won that episode.
