Decatur County, Tennessee (WKRN) – A middle school teacher in Decatur County won a big prize in the Wheel of Fortune episode on Thursday night.
And Emily Keaton didn’t win the game, but she left on a trip to Barbados.
Keaton grew up watching a game show with her great aunt Helen. She decided to apply for the contest this summer and, to her surprise, she was selected as part of Wheel’s “Teacher Week”.
“I’ll never forget walking to Sony Productions that day. It’s like a little girl in Bus Springs. I don’t have a business here.” And I just, well, it’s a very surreal moment. It was, but I thought it was a fun moment. “Keton said.
Keaton lost a tight match in the final puzzle with a California teacher, but she said she would never forget that experience.
UT Martin’s supporters, with Keaton as a part-time instructor, gathered to hold a watch party.
Keaton traveled to Los Angeles with two friends to shoot.
