Wheel of Fortune host, Pat Sajak explains that back in the show’s hay day he (and Vanna) used to booze it up before the show…
Pat Sajak and Vanna White have done “Wheel of Fortune” drunk. In fact, it sounds like it may have happened ROUTINELY back in the day.
During an appearance on ESPN’S “Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable”, Pat said this was when, “he was much younger and could tolerate those things.”
Pat said he and Vanna would hit up a local Mexican restaurant between tapings.
He said, “They served great margaritas, so Vanna and I would go and have two, or three or six and then come [back] and do the last shows, and have trouble recognizing the alphabet. They’re really good tapes to get a hold of.”
Pat said the average number of margaritas they drank was FOUR.
Sadly though, those days are OVER.
Pat said, “Now, if I were to inhale the cork in a bottle of wine I would probably keel over, I’m getting a little older for this. So, we don’t do that. I would be hesitant to have anything to drink now.”
Ha, that’s hilarious.
