Pat Sajak shows a rare side of himself
On Wednesday’s episode of America’s Game Show, Maggie will take over Vanna White’s role. This made her father Pat Sajak proud. The game show shared a clip teasing tonight’s episode. The celebrity version of Wheel of Fortune airs tonight and features celebrity contestants Vanna White herself and Jeopardy! hosts Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings.
They’re all giving a shot at the wheel. Meanwhile, Maggie will turn the letters. In a recent episode, she admitted that she hopes “to make Vanna proud.” The blonde stunner walked out in a long red evening gown. She stood next to Pat Sajak, who was beside himself. He never thought he would see the day that Maggie would become the next Vanna White.
“I think I’m gonna cry,” Pat Sajak admitted.
The May 10 episode shows Vanna competing against Ken and Mayim. This is definitely a plot twist for fans since celebrities appear in this special primetime version. It’s the first time that the Jeopardy! hosts compete on the show.
Fans will have to see if Ken is as good at letters as he is at trivia or if Vanna’s time on the show prepared for her this moment. The three contestants are competing to win up to $1 million dollars for the charity of their choice. The episode will air at 9 P.M. EST on ABC and will be available for streaming on Hulu.
