Kiki Kiefer, of New Orleans, brought home a bundle of cash and prizes from “Wheel of Fortune” recently.

Just how much is something viewers will learn Friday night, when the syndicated game show airs at 6:30 p.m. on WBRZ, Channel 2 (cable Channel 5 in Baton Rouge and Lafayette) and WVUE, Channel 8 (cable Channel 9) in New Orleans.

Kiefer, who applied for the show online, is a hospitality service professional who enjoys singing and playing the guitar in her free time. The mother of two hopes to use her winnings to build her kids the pool of their dreams. Kiefer said she has been watching the show “for as long as she can remember,” according to a news release from “Wheel of Fortune.”

It’s “Weekend Getaways” week on “Wheel,” where contestants can win once-in-a-lifetime trips and cash prizes, while home viewers have a chance to win $5,000 in cash prizes each day.
