B_ST FRI_NDS: Hoboken Buddies Appear on ‘Wheel of Fortune’

We’d like to solve the puzzle, please…

This Monday, Hoboken residents Chris Clarke and Chris Powell will appear on Wheel of Fortune at 7:30 p.m (right after Jeopardy!) on Channel 7 (WABC).

“Some time last summer, myself and Chris Clarke (the two Chris’ from Hoboken) auditioned for Best Friends week,” Chris Powell told hMAG.

“We auditioned in NYC that lasted about an hour or so of mock games and interviews. Roughly a couple of weeks later, we received a letter that we were both selected for Best Friends Week.”

Powell tells us that there will be a viewing party for the episode at McSwiggan’s Pub (110 First St., Hoboken).

“It took awhile for us to get our tape date but we recorded the episode about six weeks ago. It was a long day but a very cool process to see the behind the scenes of what it takes to film a show.”

As for the iconic hosts of Wheel, Powell says, “Vanna and Pat were both very warm and friendly to not only the contestants but the guests watching the episode as well.”

We also asked how many vowels they bought. “As far as how it went,” says Powell, “you’ll have to tune in.”
