Studio One features segments on ethics expert and Wheel of Fortune contestant

This week on Studio One, meet Patrick Kuhse, who worked as a stockbroker, then deceived clients and illegally increased his commissions. After being caught, Kuhse fled to Costa Rica for four years. He eventually turned himself in and spent four years in prison. He now devotes himself to speaking to audiences worldwide about the importance of honest conduct.

University of North Dakota Student Quinn Rufsvold was one of the lucky ones; she was chosen to appear on the TV show Wheel of Fortune. Rufsvold says the whole process was unlike anything she expected. She says there were strict rules and the experience was one-of-a-kind. Tune into Studio One this week to learn what it’s like to be behind-the-scenes of a televised game show.
