Pat Sajak And Vanna White Hosted “Wheel of Fortune” Trashed Back in the ’80s!

Pat Sajak and Vanna White. When you hear these names and "Wheel of Fortune", you usually think of your grandparents on any given weeknight, no? Well now, you'll be thinking about going to work drunk.

Pat Sajak and Vanna White.  When you hear these names and “Wheel of Fortune”, you usually think of your grandparents on any given weeknight, no?  Well now, you’ll be thinking about going to work drunk.

Sajak appeared on the ESPN2 talk show “Dan LeBatard Is Highly Questionable” on Tuesday, and admitted during the interview that he used to host “Wheel of Fortune” while drunk!

“Yes…When I first started and was much younger and could tolerate those things. We had a different show then.”

Sajak said that because the show was reliant on “cheesy prizes,” it would require long set-up times between shows, allowing he and Vanna White, to take 2½-hour dinner breaks, complete with margaritas.

“At NBC in Burbank we had a place called Los Arcos across the street — which is Spanish, as you know, for ‘The Arcos’ — and they served great margaritas…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.”

So does Sajak think anyone realized it?  At this point, it doesn’t matter:

“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.”

What he does know, however, is that he wouldn’t be able to handle that kind of lifestyle today:

“Now, if I were to inhale the cork in a bottle of wine, I’d probably keel over…I’m getting a little older.”

Check out the full interview below, as both of us search through YouTube and our old VHS recordings for any old 80s episodes that could possibly even hint at a drunk “Wheel of Fortune”
