Hello! My name is Andy Nguyen and I’m the host of this site. I’m currently a sales associate living in Houston, TX. I’ve been watching this show w/ my grandma since I was age 2 and learned to spell Pat’s name. Every day, I will be giving you daily recaps of America’s Game. I will be using help from sources such as gameshownewsnet.com and Game Show Kingdom (hosted by Bobby McBride; I’m a fan of his site). I will also be providing statistics on how a season went. I may also provide recaps form past seasons.
Back in September 2010, the Wheelmobile came to my previous location of Chicago and I decided to apply to be a contestant. Well, NO LUCK whatsoever. Fast forward to June 2017 in Houston, TX at Memorial City Mall. This time, I got lucky! I was called in the final game of the day on June 10. Even though I didn’t solve the puzzle, I still got a couple nice prizes including a travel mug, and a T shirt! My second audition was held on June 29 at the hotel near the mall. After a three week wait, I got my letter and I was finally accepted to be on the show!
My first call to go to a taping was back in September 2017. It was for “Show You the World”, but I couldn’t go, because my family was committed to vacation. In the February of the next year, I got another call to go to a taping, and this time I accepted it. I had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful people on my taping day of February 22nd. Now, I was hoping to be one of the early episodes for “California Coast” week, but I was actually playing on the sixth and final taping of the day. Talk about a long wait! I was a little nervous in the beginning during filming, but I handled it just fine. I became the big winner of my episode w/ a total of $22,600 cash & trip to Bahamas! I could’ve added a new Camaro in the BR if I had solved my final puzzle of WRAPAROUND PORCH (that first word is NOT used very often), but at least I won’t have to pay a lot of taxes.
Anyway, this has been a whirlwind experience. It was so awesome meeting Pat and Vanna as well as Jim the announcer. I hope to keep this site strong for many years to come!
