Wheel Of Fortune Features Its First Special Needs Contestant: VIDEO


Even though Wheel of Fortune has been on television since 1975, the game show had its first-ever special needs contestant just this week — 21-year-old Trenton "Trent" Girone, an Arizona man with Aspergers and Tourette Syndrome who has had nine brain surgeries and an open heart surgery.

Girone has been a fan of the game since he was 2 years old. And though he didn’t win the game, Girone did share his experience on the Wheel of Fortune blog:

"I love the show and wanted to be part of its history. I thought I would do a great job at solving puzzles… I want to thank all of the contestant staff for taking the time to help me, and would like to thank Pat Sajak for his assistance, as well. I have some physical challenges that they were aware of and they made sure I was safe and comfortable.”

See Girone show you how to play the game, AFTER THE JUMP...
