Vanna White was ‘petrified, terrified’ to host Wheel of Fortune

Last month, Pat Sajak was rushed into emergency surgery for a blocked intestine. Since the show must go on, the producers asked Vanna White to fill in as the host. Next week, will we see her go from turning letters to turning on the charm with the contestants.

Today, she talked to Good Morning America about changing jobs for the first time in 37 years. That is right, she and Sajak had never not done a show together in 37 years until this happened. You would think, after all of that time, she would have learned a thing or two from her friend. It turns out; she told T.J. Holmes, “I don’t pay attention to Pat.” Not only that, she says she only turned the wheel three times before she had to. If I worked on that show, I would spin that wheel every day. I do not know how she was not tempted to do the same.

White says that hosting was challenging because “I had to be aware of everything that’s going on. Where before, all I had to worry about was letters. Now, I have to carry the whole show.”

A show she does not want to do without her partner of 37 years. She cannot imagine doing it without him. That and White has a whole new respect for him. She hopes he feels the same way. Since their relationship last lasted longer than a lot of Hollywood marriages combined, I am sure he feels the same way. If he didn’t, then they would have gotten a divorce a long time ago.

Sajak, who is now back at work, was off for three weeks to recover, and White hosted the whole time. I do not know about you, but I will be tuning in to see how she does. That and I really want to know who turned all the letters in her absence. It looks Minnie Mouse did the first episode. I am curious if she did the rest.

Which makes you wonder how their contract negotiations will go for them when they are up in 2022. They can say to her, “Your job is so easy even a mouse could do it.” They will say to him, “Your job is so easy, even a letter turner can do it.” Then they will say to them, “Yes, but it will be hard for them to have our lasting appeal and chemistry.”


Pat Sajak undergoes emergency surgery

Wheel of Fortune did something unusual on Thursday and cancelled a taping of the game show because “Pat Sajak underwent successful emergency surgery to correct a blocked intestine.” The game show says, “He is resting comfortably and looking forward to getting back to work.”

Since the show must go on, it did so with Vanna White as the host. No word if she had to do double duty and turn the letters too. Which would be quite entertaining if that was the case. However, I doubt that they would do that to her.

I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to see her episodes. If I were Sajak, I would be nervous because I betcha she is going to do a great job.

BTW would it be wrong to say that Sajak is so full of sh!t and that is why he had the surgery? It is something I think he would appreciate with his sense of humor. Get well soon, Pat.


How Pat Sajak is going to get you to watch Wheel of Fortune this season
September 9th, 2019 under Wheel of Fortune. [ Comments: none ]

Wheel! Of! Fortune! is back for its 37th season tonight. Are you still a Wheel Watcher? I am not. Although, I am reconsidering that stance after reading Pat Sajak’s tweet.

That is because the host wrote, “I’m not a believer in hexes or curses, but I’ve heard that many of those who failed to watch last season’s premiere of Wheel suffered many unexplainable medical conditions. So, just to be safe, you might want to watch the beginning of our 37th season tonight.”

All of a sudden, I feel the feel, the feel the Wheel. Therefore, tune into tonight because your health might depend on it.


Pat Sajak and Alex Trebek won’t be retiring until at least 2022

Despite Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak and Jeopardy Alex Trebek hinting about retiring soon, today we found out that that will not be happening for at least another four years. That is because Sony Television announced today that they renewed both of their contracts and Vanna White’s through 2022. Meaning they will not be going anywhere for a while.

Which is a good thing because their game shows are one of the few constants that we have and we need that in this mad mad world.


Did Pat Sajak just reveal he is going to retire?
July 9th, 2018 under Game Shows, Wheel of Fortune. [ Comments: none ]

Pat Sajak has been pretty much been hosting Wheel of Fortune since 1991 and looks like the game show host is getting ready to retire. The 71-year-old tweeted this over the weekend, “Thinking ahead to retirement in a few years. Might be time to break out the Beanie Baby collection and cash in.”

Does it sound like he is ready to call it a day on one of the easiest jobs in Hollywood? If he does, then what will you do? Better yet, who should replace him?

More importantly are Beanie Babies worth anything because I got a few I could sell?
