"It was really surreal spinning the Big Wheel onstage," said Mr. O'Brien, who graduated earlier this month with an MBA from Stanford's Graduate School of Business. "I'm a huge fan of the show. My brother and I used to make our parents come in early from the beach on vacation to watch it."
Mr. O'Brien and a group of friends decided to take a road trip to the CBS Studio Center in Hollywood to audition, he said. After a round of interviews, Mr. O'Brien made it onto the show.
"Drew Carey made fun of me a lot for having a Stanford MBA and being on the show," Mr. O'Brien said. "He's a pretty funny guy."
Mr. O'Brien said he won a bedroom set, a mattress, some E-readers worth $8,354, and a flat screen TV worth $1,800.
