    Sajak: Vanna and I Did Wheel of Fortune Drunk

    Pat Sajak admits he and Vanna White used to throw back a few margaritas while taping Wheel of Fortune.
    Pat Sajak has been hosting Wheel for more than 30 years, and in a new interview on ESPN's Dan Le Batard Is Highly Questionable, he talked about how he and Vanna White would head over to a nearby Mexican restaurant in Burbank and drink during two-hour dinner breaks.
    "Vanna and I would go across and have two or three or six and then come and do the last shows and have trouble recognizing the alphabet. They're really good tapes to get a hold of," Sajak said.
    "We had a different show then. You didn't win money. You won fake money with which you could buy cheesy prizes," he explained.
    Did it make the shows better or worse? "I had a great time. I have no idea if the shows were any good, but no one said anything, so I guess I did OK."
    Now, says Sajak, 65, "If I were to inhale the cork of a bottle of wine, I'd probably keel over. I would be hesitant to have anything to drink now -- although I'm hammered at this moment."

    You'd have to get hammered every once in a while to deal with doing that show for that long.

    My thinking.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    This tells me Pat did more with Vanna drunk than I would have suspected. Good work Pat!

    Why not? Its not like that job is incredibly hard or important where you'd need to be sober to do it.

    Re: Sajak: Vanna and I Did Wheel of Fortune Drunk

    Shouldn't the thread title read, "Sajak: I Did Vanna on the Wheel of Fortune Drunk"?

    Mods, little help over here please.

    I bet they got hammered and then went looking for strays to neuter and spay.

    I usually start looking for strays when I've had a few.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Game show tradition I guess. If you take a look at the multitude of Match Game clips on YouTube, it's is rather obvious that a few of those folks were tanked from time to time as well, particulalry Brett Somers and McLean Stevenson...
