A Thompson, ND, woman was a contestant on "Wheel of Fortune" Wednesday night.

Danielle Odenbach gathered with family and friends to watch her spin the wheel.

They were at Rhombus Guys in Grand Forks to watch the show which was taped last month in Los Angeles.

Danielle couldn't tell anyone how well she did until after the show.

She started off strong, solving the first puzzle, but then ran out of luck. She ended up hitting bankrupt and lose a turn several times, putting her in third place.

"I started off strong and then when I hit that first bankrupt and then the lose a turn and then that last bankrupt, I knew the puzzle, I didn't want to just solve. I wanted to go for a little bit of money, so part of it's luck," Odenbach said.

To get on the show, Odenbach has to go through a few auditions in Fargo. Even though the wheel didn't spin in her favor, Odenbach still took home over $5,000.

Odenbach and her husband just bought a new house, so that's where they'll be putting there money, they say.
