Pat Sajak Says He & Vanna White Were Drunk on Air During ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Early Days
Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak told ESPN2’s Dan LeBatard Thursday that he and co-host Vanna White got drunk back in the day at a bar across from NBC Universal’s Burbank studio.
According to Reuters, Sajak and White used to dip out between taping the popular game show, have several drinks and then return drunk.
“Vanna and I would go across and have two or three or six and then comes and do the last shows and have trouble recognizing the alphabet. They are really good tapes to get a hold of.”
He said, “two, or three, or six.” Woooooooow! Imagine how many they would have put away if the break were longer. Anyway, he says age has slowed them down and that they don’t drink like that anymore. But they did hold their liquor well, so you never know.
At least this version of being drunk at the will didn’t hurt anyone, for the most part.
