A Knoxville woman appeared on Monday's episode of “Wheel of Fortune.”

Katie Troutman told she was thrilled to appear on the popular game show that she has been watching since she was a little girl with her grandmother.

“I've always wanted to be on ‘Wheel of Fortune,' she said. “When I was little I watched with my grandma. She made me promise her if I ever had the chance, one day I would get on ‘Wheel of Fortune.'”

Troutman initially tried out for the show in the summer of 2012. Despite not being picked at the tryout, she later learned she had been chosen as a participant through a random draw of contestants.

“A month or two later I got a call that I'd been selected to go on the show,” she explained.

Though Troutman cannot say how she did on the show prior to the airing, she said she and her family will be watching Monday night.

“Wheel of Fortune” airs on Nashville's News 2 each weekday at 6:30 p.m.
