ATASCADERO – Wednesday, Jan. 13, Atascadero resident Rebecca Berg will appear on national television as she competes for big money on Wheel of Fortune. Berg has been a resident of Atascadero for the past 14 years and is the first in her family to appear on the popular television game show. 

Berg works as a bookkeeper and started watching Wheel of Fortune as a kid with her grandparents and has continued with her husband, Troy. 

“I love word games, period,” Berg told the Atascadero News. “I do crossword puzzles every day, and then I watch Wheel of Fortune.”

With the help of her husband, Berg uploaded her submission video to and participated in a virtual audition before being selected to the show that was filmed more than a month ago.


“I was nervous heading into the virtual audition and the real show,” Berg said. 

Tune in on Wednesday night at 7:30 and watch Berg play to potentially bring home $1 million or a once-in-a-lifetime vacation as a part of Wheel of Fortunes “Rail Week.”
