Vanna White Reveals Only Argument She Ever Had With ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Host Pat Sajak

By Colin Fredericson

“Wheel of Fortune” hostess Vanna White, 62, has revealed the only argument she and main host Pat Sajak ever had in their time together on the show.

“Believe it or not, Pat Sajak and I have only had one argument in 36 years and that was over putting ketchup on a hotdog,” White told Fox News.

She also explained that she likes both ketchup and mustard on a hot dog, while Sajak prefers just mustard.

White made the comment during the 26th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala in Los Angeles on May 10.

Sajak recently won a Guinness World Record for “Longest Career as a Game Show Host of the Same Show,” for serving more than 35 years as host of “Wheel of Fortune.”

The 72-year-old host made sure to thank his co-hostess by saying, “And I couldn’t have done it without you, kid,” in a video clip posted to Twitter by “Wheel of Fortune.”

Sajak also said he plans to keep working and hopefully get another award from Guinness in the future. Sajak began hosting “Wheel of Fortune” in 1981, after Chuck Woolery left.

White also holds a Guinness World Record, for Television’s Most Frequent Clapper.

When asked about her response to those who say she has the easiest job on television, White somewhat agreed.

“Well, it is kind of true, you know. I have to kind of agree with them. But there are other things as well,” White told Fox, without saying what those things were specifically.

When Fox suggested it’s the high heels, White concurred.

“That’s hard. Thank you for that,” White told Fox. “Six shows a day in five-inch heels, it’s hard work.”

White told Fox what she would be doing if she didn’t join “Wheel of Fortune.”

“Probably real estate,” White said. “Yeah. I like real estate.”

The shows 7,000th episode aired on May 10.

“Well, we have a great producer and we have about 150 people who help put that show on, so it’s a big team effort. It’s teamwork,” White told Fox News about why the show has been a success for years.

On a video clip Wheel of Fortune posted to YouTube upon the 7,000th episode, Sajak brought out the staff and crew of the show.

Sajak and White signed contracts that will keep them working through the 2022-23 season, Fox News reported.

Sajak is active on Twitter, and has an account with 241,600 followers. White, 62, also has a Twitter account, albeit with less followers, at 24,000.

An old New York Times article described how Sajak had a natural talent for hosting game shows, even though he is very secretive about his personal life.

”I went back and looked at Pat’s first ‘Wheel of Fortune’ show. It could have been taped yesterday, he was always that good. He knew how far he could go without infringing on the game,’’ said Paul Gilbert, who used to produce “Wheel of Fortune” and “The Pat Sajak Show,” via The New York Times.

“Wheel of Fortune” gets 10.2 million viewers a week and holds the rank of the most watched TV show, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
