Davie woman to appear on Wheel of Fortune

By Doris Short
Special to the Enterprise

Molly Bronson dreamed of being on the game show Wheel of Fortune her whole life and recently that dream came true.

“I created a bucket list of things to do while I am in my 30s,” she said. “Wheel of Fortune was at the top of my list and I can check it off now.”

When she heard that the Wheel Mobile was going to be in Charlotte last May, she decided to go. At the Wheel Mobile events, participants put their names in a drawing to be called onto stage to play a puzzle. She received a call in October and found out that she had been chosen as a contestant in November.

“The show is really special and has been a huge part of the lives of multiple generations of Americans,” she said. “There is such a positive atmosphere created by everyone involved from the hosts of the Wheel Mobile event to the contestant supervisors who worked with us on the day of our taping and to Pat Sajak and Vanna White. They all truly want each contestant to have fun and do well.”

The daughter of Glen and Mary Lynne Baysinger and Mark and Patty Harris, all of Mocksville, Bronson grew up in Davie County. She graduated from Davie High in 2005 and Catawba College in 2009.  She lives in Salisbury with her husband,  Lee, and their three daughters, Aymen, 4; Ada, 2½ and Lydia, 1.

“It was such a great experience. I’ve dreamed of being on the show my entire life. We all used to watch Wheel of Fortune with my Grandma Mary (Eaton) and I know that my Grandma was looking out for me during the whole process.”

Did she win?

Bronson is not allowed to divulge that information, but she will appear on the show when it airs on Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. on WFMY TV.

“It will be worth watching,” she said.
