Lately, most of the chatter for Wheel Of Fortune surrounds the impending retirement of longtime host, Pat Sajak. While many fans are sad to see the iconic host leaving, others are ready for the new change. Undoubtedly, a huge transition like replacing a well-vetted host who has been on the show for over four decades comes with some nerves. As the new guy, Ryan Seacrest has a few apprehensions. However, the show will go on! Likewise, Ryan will have support from Vanna White and Pat’s daughter, Maggie Sajak, after Pat’s departure. In some ways, Pat seems ready to get on with his retirement. Without a doubt, holding any job for over forty years has to wear on a person.

Larry Had A Few Set Backs

Certainly, fans enjoyed seeing him play. Although he had some bad luck with catching “bankruptcy” on a spin at one point, he gained $2000 back. Additionally, he wasn’t the favorite for winning since the episode sadly didn’t end that way. However, fans love his upbeat energy. But Larry’s lovableness didn’t come without some struggle. Unfortunately, during the episode of Wheel Of Fortune, the very likable guy was sweating profusely. Seemingly, Pat Sajak or the makeup crew could have stepped in, but they didn’t. Even after each commercial break, he had sweat dripping down his face. Notably, fans felt horrible for him.

  • On X, one fan says, “This poor man is sweating on #WheelOfFortune. Makeup staff needs to intervene!”
  • Another fan adds, “Why is he so wet?”
  • Someone else suggests, “Larry needs a towel.”

Then he asks Larry, “If you tell me that was your nickname in coll- high school…” Larry went with the flow, answering, “Call me the chocolate lover I’m here for it!” Then Pat jokes, “Hey good to see money on your name.” Likewise, he mentions how much fun it was Larry was there. Pat says, “It was a treat having you.”

  • One fan says, “That is the happiest Pat has been on the show in months.”
  • But another fan couldn’t believe Pat Sajak would say such a thing. They say, “I cannot believe he said it, nor did they edit it out.”

Although Kalesha took the episode win, Larry graciously clapped. But Kalesha didn’t get the bonus puzzle, “Evaluating The Work.” Sadly, she didn’t get the extra $50,000 but took home $22,000 anyway. And Larry may not have got the money, but his lovable personality was a winner for the fans.
