The show will be all about Philly. All 15 contestants are from Philly, the set is all Philly, the puzzles are Philly, the “wraps” are all Philly, and they brought 50 Philly folks out to LA, where they shot the actual show.

They also visited some restaurants including East Passyunk’s Townsend, Pat’s Steaks, Geno’s Steaks, Ralph’s Italian Restaurant, and Bing Bing Dim Sum.

  1. I must admit, I’m not normally a Wheel of Fortune watcher; however I’ll give them kudos for selecting such a great city to broadcast from;;; I will definitely put WoF on next week- to see how Philly comes across – Thanks for the heads up!
