Wheel Of Fortune hosts might soon exit the show after its latest big announcement. Both Pat Sajak and Vanna White have been a part of the show for decades. Sajak joined the show in 1981 and a year later, Vanna became his co-host. However, the long-time hosts might soon be coerced to make a decision regarding their futures. What was the big announcement about? Will Pat and Vanna really quit the show or keep working as the show’s hosts? Keep reading to find out the details!
Wheel Of Fortune Gets Renewed For Five More Years
Both the host and the hostess’ contracts will expire next year and they might be obligated to quit or continue. On Wednesday, it was reported that Wheel Of Fortune has been renewed for five more years until 2027-2028. With this renewal, the show will now make it to its 45th season. For the last 42 years, Pat Sajak has been the main man taking charge of the show with Vanna on the puzzle board.
With their contracts soon to end, Sajak has hinted in the past that he might not continue as the show’s host forever. The 76-year-old said during an interview, “Years go by fast. We’re getting near the end. In most television shows by this time, you would have said, ‘That’s probably enough,’ But this show will not die. It appears I may go before the show. We’re not gonna do this for another 40 years.”
Fans Speculate Maggie Sajak Could Be The Next Host
Given how Pat and Vanna have been a staple for the show, it would be difficult for the show makers to find an ideal replacement for the duo whenever they retire. On Reddit, fans speculated who might replace the duo. Most fans came up with the conclusion that Pat’s daughter Maggie Sajak would take up the mantle after her father.
One wrote, “I think she’s taking over for Pat.”
However, another critic remarked, “Nepotism at its best!”
Wheel Of Fortune Fans Don’t Want Maggie Sajak As Host
At the moment, Maggie serves as a social correspondent for the show and fans are already familiar with her work. However, not everyone is okay with Maggie stepping up as the next host of Wheel Of Fortune. Regarding her potential gig as the new host, one fan wrote, “The whole Maggie Sajak thing annoys me to the end. I cringe whenever they show her and her made-up ‘social correspondent’ job.”
“Yup! Thought they could just slip her in. It would be great if someone else had the chance to prove themselves,” added another.
