KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Hundreds of people returned to Kansas City's Power and Light District Sunday to spin the wheel.  They auditioned for the "Wheel of Fortune" TV game show that's seen weeknights at 6:30 on FOX 4.

Kansas City is one of about 20 cities where auditions are being held.

Experts say the biggest factor in winning a spot on a TV game show isn't how well you play the game, but how exited you are.

The folks who showed up Sunday afternoon were doing their best to prove they deserved a spot on the show.

But only a lucky few had their names drawn to go up on stage to show their skills.

"I watch it a lot at home and play it for free on the Internet.  You freeze up a little when you are actually on stage doing it," said Crystal Matthis.

The auditions for the show wrapped up Sunday.  In September, "Wheel of Fortune" judges will return for a second round of auditions.

If would-be contestants make it through the second round, they'll get to appear on the show.
