Pierre native hoping for role on Wild Kingdom reboot

Posted: Updated:

Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom took viewers to the far corners of the world. Now the show is making a return online. And a South Dakota native is one of three finalists for the next Wild Guide.

Stephanie Arne is one of hundreds of people who submitted a tape for the job.

We caught up with her Wednesday at the Children's Museum in Brookings.

She says this is a job she's wanted since she was a kid, growing up in Pierre.

"I was watching reruns of Mutual of Omaha and Jim Fowler was wrestling with crocodiles and spying on lions and I just thought that was amazing. This world that I didn't even know existed growing up in South Dakota," Stephanie Arne said.

You can see Stephanie's audition tape, as well as the other finalists on the Mutual of Omaha website.

The winner will be announced July 15.
