3-Minute Interview: Rob Logan

Rob Logan, a 25-year-old San Francisco resident, will put his puzzle-solving prowess on display tonight as a contestant on the venerable game show “Wheel of Fortune.” Logan, who grew up in Texas, was one of 600 people who tried out for the show in May at the San Francisco Hilton. After waiting six months for a reply, Logan was invited to Los Angeles for a Dec. 14 filming, which will air at 7:30 p.m. on KGO-TV.

Have you always been a big “Wheel of Fortune” fan? Actually, I don’t even watch the show that much, and I think that helped me out a little during the auditions. There were some people that you just could tell were huge fans, and I think they were pretty intimidated by the show.

How was the experience in Los Angeles? It was all pretty surreal. The studio they film everything in is actually really small. I was expecting to see this real glitzy showroom, but it wasn’t anything like that.

What was it like meeting Vanna White and Pat Sajak? Vanna was real personable. She came down early in the morning, dressed in a T-shirt, without any makeup on, and introduced herself. We didn’t see a whole lot of Pat, though. I think the years of doing the show have made him a little lackadaisical.

Are you allowed to reveal what happened during the show’s taping? There weren’t any real confidentiality agreements. I could tell people what happened on the show, but I figured it would be more fun for them to watch it live.

Any big viewing plans for tonight? My fiancée and I will probably have about 15 to 20 people come over to our place to watch the show and drink a little wine. We expect it to be a pretty fun time.
