Things have taken quite the turn over at Wheel Of Fortune. It all started in November when Pat Sajak was getting ready for work and started experiencing intense abdominal pains. Pat was later rushed into emergency surgery for a blocked intestine. Pat has had to take time off to recover. In the interim, Vanna White has gone from letter turner to host extraordinaire. While nervous, Vanna’s stepped up in a big way and fans love her for it.
It’s Vanna’s final week hosting Wheel before Pat’s return. In looking for someone to turn the letters, the show’s producers decided to keep it in the family. On Monday’s show, Vanna welcomed Pat’s daughter, 25-year-old Maggie Sajak, as the special guest. The two ladies reminisced on Maggie’s first time in the show back in 1996, as a precocious 1-year-old. When it came time to get the game underway, Maggie was a natural, making her dad proud.
