Pat Sajak Hosted 'Wheel of Fortune' Drunk: Five Suspicious Videos
You know how "Wheel of Fortune" was kind of boring? What with all the repetitive wheel swings, the slow turning of the letters -- if you had to live with it every single day, like host Pat Sajak did, it might well drive you to drink.
And as it turns out, drive Sajak to drink it did indeed. People magazine reports that in a recent interview with "Dan le Batard is Highly Questionable," the former game show host said that in the early days of the show, he and 1980s glamour girl Vanna White would go to Los Arcos in Burbank during dinner breaks and toss back a couple of margaritas.
"We had endless time between shows," he said. "Vanna and I would go across [the street] and have two, or three, or six, and then come and do the last shows and have trouble recognizing the alphabet."
Two or three, or six. After six margaritas it's really just impressive that nobody puked watching that wheel spin around.
Sajak added that the tapes of those episodes are probably "really great tapes to get a hold of."
We couldn't agree more. And so, here are some videos in which Sajak's behavior certainly seems...questionable, in light of this new revelation. Let the record show that we don't have proof of whether alcohol was involved in any of the following clips, but take a look for yourselves:
