Chris Kent, a student from Falls Church, will be a contestant on the television game show “Wheel of Fortune” next Monday.
Kent, who recently left the Marine Corps after six years to go back to graduate school, tried out for the show at a “Wheelmobile” event in New York City.
The Wheelmobile is a 32-foot-long Winnebago that tours the U.S. in search of contestants for the popular game show.
When Kent isn’t studying, he enjoys traveling and playing sports. His appearance will air on ABC at 7:30 p.m. next Monday, March 29.
