Sheletta Brundidge competed on Ellen's Game of Games on NBC Tuesday April 14th. The show is made by Ellen DeGeneres and features large scale versions of popular games from her daytime talk show.
In an interview with KARE 11, Sheletta told the story of how she ended up on the set to film last summer. She say the show was looking for contestants and her husband tried talking her out of it, to which she replied:
If you have a better way to make $100,000, and I don'e have to go to jail? I'm going to apply.
Sheletta and her husband are parents kids nicknamed as a group the Brundidge Babies, three of which have autism. She went on the show to champion for them, and try to win the prize money to buy an RV. Travel is hard for them, but an RV would give the family the opportunity to see the world together.
