New Season

Monday 6 April, 5.30pm on TV One

Wheel Of Fortune is back weekday nights at 5.30pm for a new season of puzzles, cash giveaways and prizes, and a new face on the show.

Jason Gunn hosts the show where everyday Kiwis solve word puzzles for the chance to win prizes and cash, and viewers at home can also play along and text in to win.

This year, viewers can join the Wheel Watchers Club, where they can win up to $1000 cash every day, just by watching the show. One lucky Wheel Watcher will also win a P&O Cruise just by registering.

There are also two viewer puzzles (renamed Speed Digits) to play on the show each day, as well as new puzzle categories, Free Spin discs.

Actor Greer Robson-Kirk will join Jason Gunn as co-host while regular co-host Sonia Gray is away having her twins.

“I’m very excited about this opportunity,” says Greer. “I’m looking forward to the chance to get all glammed up, and I’m thrilled to get the chance to work with Jason Gunn.”

Sonia promises viewers she will be back: “Yes, you’ll see me back on Wheel Of Fortune! The recording schedule will allow me to juggle both the show and the twins – I have lots of support from my partner and my mum, and once I am back, the babies will come along to the TVNZ studios with me, which is fantastic.”

Jason Gunn will be one busy man, juggling his Dancing With The Stars and Wheel Of Fortune hosting duties with his new breakfast radio slot in Christchurch.

“I’ve missed my word puzzles, to be honest,” says Jason. “It’s such a ‘contagious’ show, if I can call it that – I love hosting it, I love the people I meet on the show every day, but I really do love playing those puzzles.”

“And this year I will be dancing a bit of a two-step – the lovely Sonia, then the lovely Greer, and then hello back to the lovely Sonia again. You can’t say I’m not a lucky man to be working with these two lovely co-hosts.”
