Ryan told People, “Do I feel pressure? Sure.” Knowing a big transition is ahead, he adds, “People love watching [Pat Sajak]. I want them to keep [loving] watching it, and I hope to do a great job as well.” Complimenting his predecessor, Ryan says, “He has made that show just something so very special for so long, and he has done such a seamless, remarkable job so no one can be him.” Without a doubt, he knows he isn’t a “replacement” for the great Pat Sajak, but instead someone who will carry the torch of the beloved show.

Vanna White Disagrees

Pushing back on Pat Sajak‘s description of himself, Vanna White says in disbelief, “No, you’re not.” But she wasn’t saying she didn’t believe he was a “neat freak,” instead that the behavior wasn’t as bad as he let on. She shows support by saying, “Then I’m the sick one, too.” She crosses her arms displaying her emphasis on him “wrongly” categorizing himself. Admittedly, she shares the same compulsion and needs to have her kitchen spotless each night as well. Pat says, “There you go. That’s why we get along so well.”
