For over four decades, Vanna White,66, and Pat Sajak,76, have graced the screens together while co-hosting the popular game show Wheel of Fortune. Unfortunately, everything must come to an end. After Pat Sajak announced that he’d be retiring immediately after the current season ends, White didn’t take the news very well. Read on to find out more.
Vanna White In A Dilemma
White and Sajak’s names and faces have been synonymous with the game show. But more than that, they have built a strong bond together. In an interview with People Magazine, the TV star received the news with a heavy heart.
White wondered how she would continue running the show without her long-time co-host. She admits to having considered leaving the show along with Pat Sajak. However, White feels she isn’t ready to leave despite the latest developments. Vanna White will stay for two more seasons until 2025-2026.
Who Will Join White On The Stage?
The game show’s fans have been waiting eagerly to see who takes the baton from White’s long-time co-host. Shortly after the announcement, Ryan Seacrest,48, broke the internet by revealing that he would take over the legendary host’s seat. Vanna White thinks Ryan is a good guy who will do a good job hosting the show.
However, she still feels odd not having Pat Sajak by her side.
How White’s New Co-Host Feels About The Entire Awkward Situation
Vanna White had nothing but good things to say about her new co-host, Ryan Seacrest. But what does the new guy on the block feel about taking up this new role? The American Idol host told White he isn’t looking to replace Sajak. With over four decades on the show, Ryan Seacrest doesn’t think Sajak is replaceable. While ending the conversation, White said she’s looking forward to working with Ryan and keeping the Wheel of Fortune rolling.
Vanna White Teases On Her Replacement
Sajak announced his retirement on X, “Well, the time has come. I’ve decided that our 41st season, which begins in September, will be my last. It’s been a wonderful ride, and I’ll have more to say in the coming months. Many thanks to you all. (If nothing else, it’ll keep the clickbait sites busy!)”
But who will take Vanna White’s place when she eventually leaves? She revealed that her ideal choice would be Sajak’s daughter, Maggie Sajak, 28. White praised Sajak’s daughter, saying she’s been around the show all her life and has the perfect role model, her father.
