It has been a difficult few months for Sony’s TV game shows Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. However, today we got some good news on the latter. Pat Sajak and Vanna White renewed their contracts through 2024.

Along with the contract renewal news, we learned there are going to be a lot of changes happening on the show starting on Monday. Sajak is now a consulting producer. He is not the only Sajak on the program now. His daughter is joining the series. Maggie Sajak will be sharing behind-the-scenes access and interviews with the hosts, staff, crew, and contestants on social media.

There are also going to be gameplay changes. For starters, Sajak is no longer going to turn the wheel for the Final Spin. Instead, the contestant in control will do it. “If you think about it, by doing the Final Spin I, as host, had an impact on the outcome of the game and that has always bothered me because it just didn’t feel right,” said Sajak. “With this change, only the contestants determine the outcome of the game and the host does not impose themself in any way.”

The wheel is also getting some changes. The Free Play wedge is gone, and it will be replaced by an $850 one. They also changed the minimum amount of the Bonus Wheel to $39,000 for the show’s 39th season.

Finally, expect to see a refreshed set and music. Other than that, it is all the same.


Pat Sajak gets sassy with Vanna White

There have been reports that Pat Sajak has been sarcastic with some of the contestants on Wheel of Fortune. Now, he is doing the same to Vanna White.

When one of the contestants guessed the letter D, the letter turner couldn’t find it on the board. Therefore, Sajak had to tell her where to look for it. That was fine.

Then when they got to the next letter, Sajak said to White, “Can you find it?” Then he followed it up with, “Boy, I am just feisty today.” That he was, and White is too nice to be feisty back. I hope she gets her revenge on him in some way, whether it is on camera or not.

For those of you who are wondering why she couldn’t find the letter, she explained what happened. “She called a D. And I am so far away, it sounded like a different letter. So, I was going to a different letter,” she said. White also didn’t mind him helping her. However, she didn’t say if she liked the dig he made afterward.

However, considering they have been working together for nearly 40 years, I am sure they are always used to goofing around like that like most friends of four decades do.


What is the one thing that Vanna White and Pat Sajak fought over?

Vanna White and Pat Sajak have been working together on Wheel of Fortune for 38 years. In all of that time, they have had one fight.

Today when the letter turner was on The Drew Berrymore Show, she told the host what it was over. White likes to put ketchup on her hot dogs. Sajak called her out on that being gross. I side with Sajak and Barrymore on this issue. Ketchup has no place on a hot dog. That place belongs to mustard and sauerkraut. As you can tell, I am a New Yorker, and that is how we eat our frankfurters.

Seriously, could you imagine only having only one fight with someone in 38 years. I already fought with my cat twice in 38 minutes. Make that three times.

On January 7th, Celebrity Wheel of Fourtune is coming to ABC’s primetime. You can’t do a game show like that without stars, so who are the stars who are doing it?

They are Karamo Brown, Yvette Nicole Brown, Nicole Byer, Drew Carey, Rachael Leigh Cook, Jennie Garth, Chris Harrison, Teri Hatcher, Tony Hawk, Robert Herjavec, Leslie Jones, Jeannie Mai, Joel McHale, Maria Menounos, Chrissy Metz, Kevin Nealon, Patton Oswalt, Paul Reubens, Alfonso Ribeiro, Rob Riggle, Sherri Shepherd, Joe Tessitore, Chandra Wilson, and Constance Zimmer.

There are more people for me to root for on this show than ABC’s other ones like Dancing with the Stars and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. I hope Pee Wee Herman goes all the way. After all, he knows all the secret words of the day.
