Kauai friends' Wheel of Fortune stint goes viral

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - A pair of best friends who grew up on Kauai fulfilled a dream when they appeared on Wheel of Fortune.

But their 15 minutes of fame grew when a video of the pair went viral online because host Pat Sajak was laughing so hard he walked off stage.

The Garden Island reports best friends Trinette Kaui and Audrey Bonilla were determined to get on the show when it came to Hawaii.

The former Kauai High School cheerleaders did well on the show, winning $10,350.

A video of a moment when they gave a wrong answer got thousands of views on YouTube. They've been bombarded with texts and phone calls.

The friends say they're a little embarrassed, but if they were able to make people smile it was worth it.
