Melbourne, Apr.18 : Australian model and the future Mrs. Michael Clarke, Lara Bingle is being tipped for a role in the game show Wheel of Fortune. That's the deafening whisper around TV land following sightings of Bingle at Brisbane's Channel Nine studios this week.
According to news.com.au, Nine is understood to be casting for the co-hosting gig of the new-look Wheel Of Fortune with Tim Campbell and Lara, who is currently employed by Nine as part of its Holidays For Sale program.
She is being touted as a frontrunner for the game-show gig.
A rep for Nine yesterday confirmed auditions for the job were being held in Brisbane, but stopped short of naming Bingle as one of the starlets in line for the job.
"I can't say that she is or isn't being considered for the role. I cannot say either way."
Bingle's agent at International Quarterback did not return calls last night, but a staffer at the talent stable admitted Lara has been in Queensland "on business" this week.
But Australia's favourite WAG is not the only blonde linked to the job.
Melbourne spies say Big Brother alumni and lip gloss girl Jemma Gawned is in the mix to provide the female factor on the classic game show that featured a string of leggy letter-turners during its 25 years on Seven including Xenides, Sophie Faulkiner and Laura Csortan.
