Bowel blockage? Are we sure it wasn't a vowel blockage?

Default Pat Sajak Temporarily Sidelined Due to Emergency Surgery

Wishing Pat a quick recovery!

Should be interesting to see Vanna as the host --

I'm happy they didn't bring someone else in for the job.

Vanna White on hosting Wheel of Fortune: "I know every aspect of the game, which helped so much"

Tonight isn't the first time the longtime Pat Sajak sidekick has hosted Wheel of Fortune. In 1996, White and Pat Sajak switched places for one round when he had laryngitis. But White has never hosted an entire episode, which she will do starting tonight, after Sajak had emergency surgery last month to correct a blocked intestine. “I’ve never even thought of that in 37 years,” White said in an interview with The New York Times last week, “and to be asked almost on the spot, ‘How do you feel about hosting the show?’ Like, what?!” Did she have any nerves? “Oh, my gosh, that’s an understatement,” she said. “I was very nervous.” Sajak has hosted continuously for 35 years, except for April Fool's Day 1997 when he and Jeopardy!'s Alex Trebek swapped jobs. What about White's high heels? “Being behind the home base, I didn’t have to wear shoes,” she said. “So I took my shoes off during the show. It was great.” White said from her experience, she'd like to see more female game show hosts. “Everybody’s entitled to host the show: female, male, everyone,” she said. “It would be fun to see more women up there doing that. If that’s what they want to do.”

I saw Vanna White's episode of Wheel Of Fortune on Youtube a few minutes ago and it was so nice to see her interact with the contestants in solo mode. But the cutest part of the episode was seeing Minnie Mouse as letter turner and Minnie was so cute in the role. And since it was the debut day of Wheel Of Fortune's Disney Secret Santa Week it was so cute to see Mickey appear at the end. While I do wish Pat Sajak a speedy recovery Vanna is such a joy to fill in for him and I hope to see more episodes with her hosting the show solo in the future

There is something unique about a woman like Vanna White hosting Wheel of Fortune

With men dominating game show hosting jobs, it was refreshing to see White fill in for Pat Sajak as host of Wheel of Fortune starting on Monday and through the next three weeks, says Robert Llloyd. "Not to put too fine a point on it, or stereotype by gender, but there is something distinct about a woman in the job: an openness, a warmer warmth, a different sort of encouraging voice," he says, adding: "It’s not exactly sad that this job is temporary for White — Sajak is a crucial part of this equation as well — but even a casual viewer, looking ahead three weeks, might feel a little advance regret at it ending."

Vanna is doing pretty good, but I miss Pat's corny jokes and sarcasm.

Vanna White: I learned I was hosting Wheel of Fortune 30 minutes before taping

“P-A-N-I-C. Panic is the word that comes to mind!,” White said with a laugh, recalling to Vulture when she was told at the last minute last month that she had to fill in for Pat Sajak, who was undergoing emergency surgery. “Our executive producer came up to me and said, ‘Hey, Pat has to go into emergency surgery right now. How would you feel about hosting the show?’ Panic set it at that moment, but I made a quick decision and realized the show must go on. I felt like I had to do it, and I did. I did have a choice, but I didn’t. I had no practice whatsoever. It was just before it.” White said of hosting episodes of Wheel for the first time: "It was a huge shift because all of a sudden all the attention was on me."
