‘Wheel of Fortune’ Fans Support Vanna White After First Hosting Gig
The game show fixture has been side-by-side with Sajak since the beginning, so it’s only fitting that she’d fill-in while he’s away. The role shift will last for the next couple of weeks as episodes resumed production without Sajak — he’ll return once those weeks are up.
For some fans of the game show, it was a pleasant surprise as White stepped-up to usher contestants through the evening’s game. Joined by a cast of Disney characters — Minnie Mouse stepped in for Vanna by the letters — it was an all around festive experience.
While some viewers noted White’s nerves onscreen in the new role, others were singing her praises. Ahead of her hosting debut, White shared a tweet saying, “Tonight’s my first night of hosting Wheel! I’m excited and nervous! Stay tuned!”

For the first time in their 37-year history, #WheelOfFortune has a host other than Pat Sajak. Vanna White is filling in nicely. You can tell she was nervous, but who wouldn’t be? You got this, Vanna. pic.twitter.com/YOlOX7fjg1
