Sajak Wheel drunk

Sajak Wheel drunk
Sajak Wheel drunk Pat Sajak: I hosted ‘Wheel’ drunk, In an extremely candid interviewPat Sajak, the longtime host of game show “Wheel of Fortune,” says that, in the ‘80s , he used to have so much free time between tapings that he and right-hand woman Vanna White would skip out for “three or six” alcoholic beverages, then come back and finish the show drunk


"Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak admits he and co-star Vanna White drank alcoholic beverages before taping episodes of the U.S. game show in the early 1980s.

Sajak, 65, began presenting the program in 1981.

"When I first started and was much younger and could tolerate those things," TVGuide.com quoted Sajak as saying in an interview for the ESPN chat show "Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable."

"We had a different show then," he said.

Sajak said he and White would go to a nearby Mexican restaurant in Burbank, Calif., during their 2 1/2-hour dinner breaks.

"Vanna and I would go across and have two or three or six [drinks] and then come and do the last shows and have trouble recognizing the alphabet. They're really great tapes to get a hold of," Sajak said. "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. ... I would be hesitant to have anything to drink now."

The "Wheel of Fortune" wasn't the only thing spinning for Pat Sajak and Vanna White back in the day.

Sajak said in an interview on ESPN2 this week that the long-time game show team would occasionally walk over to a nearby restaurant for "two or three or six" margaritas during a break in taping early "Wheel of Fortune" shows in California. Sajak has hosted the show since 1981, and White joined him a year later.
Although he joked that he had "trouble recognizing the alphabet" for shows taped after the margarita stops, no one ever said anything to them.
