Vanna White Is Hosting “Wheel of Fortune” for 1st Time in 37 Years
On Monday, Vanna White appeared on-air as the host of <i>Wheel of Fortune</i> for the first time in the show’s 37 years, according to <i>The New York Times</i>. The famous letter-turner had to step in for host Pat Sajak after he had emergency surgery for a blocked intestine. She only had one dry run before filming started, and while she had a few minor missteps, she was able to poke fun at herself. “Oh no, I’m looking at the wrong arrow,” she said at one point. <br />How do you do this show?” White will be hosting the show for three weeks while Sajak recovers from his medical procedure. Now that she’s hosting, the letter-turners will be Mickey and Minnie Mouse for two weeks; the third week’s stand-ins will be revealed on their first day.
