Before Vanna White was turning letters on Wheel of Fortune, she was turning heads in the Miss Georgia USA Pageant. She looks the same now as she did when she was 21 in that 1978 pageant.


Vanna White plays Wordle

Vanna White has been turning letters on Wheel of Fortune for almost 40 years. Therefore, she can probably solve word puzzles in her sleep. So, it makes sense that she would play Wordle. Not only that, she is great at it. She got thorn in 2 tries on 2sday aka 2/22/22!

The game show beauty, who never ages, was so excited that she solved it that she wrote, “Got #wordle on 2nd guess! So proud of myself!

However, she wanted her fans to know, “@wheeloffortune is still my ‘number one’ game!” While it still might be her #1 game, I hope when they create a Wordle game show, they ask her to hostit.


Pat Sajak responds to the Wheel of Fortune conspiracy theorists

The contestants on Wheel of Fortune are having a really good week. For the first time in the show’s 40-year history, they had back-to-back $100,000 winners. Then they were followed by a third winner in a row, winning that amount.

Therefore, some fans of the show are starting conspiracy theories online, and host Pat Sajak has a message for them. He wrote, “A quick reminder to conspiracy theorists: thanks to the quiz show scandals of the 1950s, fixing a TV game show is a federal crime. I really like our players, and I’d like them all to win, but I draw the line at serving prison time.”

I have to admit; I am beginning to have my own conspiracy theory. It is interesting that this started happening right after Amy Schneider’s astonishing 40-game run on Jeopardy. It feels like this is WoF’s way of getting people to tune in for some excitement.

Do you have your own conspiracy theory?


Audi gives the Wheel of Fortune contestant the car she should’ve won

Charlene made it to the final round of Wheel of Fortune the other night. All she had to do was guess the correct phrase on the board. And she did. But she took too long of a pause between Choosing The Right and Word, so Pat Sajak told her that she didn’t win the prize, which was an Audi Q3.

Well, needless to say, fans were royally upset over it. No one more than Audi themselves. Therefore, they wrote on Twitter, “You’re a winner in our eyes, Charlene. Now, let’s get you a prize. Time to #GiveHerTheQ3.”

Twitter did their magic, and Charlene was put in touch with the car company. Now, we just have to wait for her to claim her prize. Good thing she also won $16,500 on the game show because she can use that to pay for the taxes on the car that she was given as a present. Nothing is ever for free.

I respect Audi for standing up and doing the right thing. Even if Wheel of Fortune’s rules forbade them from doing the right thing in the first place. Bah humbug to the rules.


Did Pat Sajak just hint he is going to retire in two years?

Today is Double Dare’s Marc Summers’ 70th birthday, and Pat Sajak, 75, sent him an ominous tweet for it.

The Wheel of Fortune host wrote, “Happy birthday, Marc. After this season, I’ll have just two years left on Wheel. As a much younger man, you might start currying favor with Sony.”

How did Summers react to that offer? He responded with, “Already done! 🤪” But then he replied to that tweet with, “Actually, I hope your daughter continues the legacy. 🤞”

Do you think Sajak will really retire? You couldn’t blame him if he did, but I hope he doesn’t. He is as much the game show as the game show is him.
