Look for a Central Texan to pop up on Friday’s “Wheel of Fortune.”

Austinite Ellison Thomas was selected to appear on the long-running game show, which airs at 6:30 p.m. weekdays on KXAN.

Here’s some background information on Thomas courtesy of the show’s producers: “She is an IT project manager who enjoys cooking and traveling in her free time. She has fond memories of watching the show with her grandmother and continues the tradition by tuning in every night with her fiancé. Being such a huge fan, it only made sense for her to apply online to become a contestant. After 12 years of applying, she was thrilled to finally be chosen. Ellison hopes to use her winnings to have the wedding of her dreams.”

How will she do? You’ll have to tune in Friday to find out.
