Vanna White Reveals The Only Argument She Has Ever Had With Pat Sajak

Vanna White Reveals The Only Argument She Has Ever Had With Pat Sajak

Vanna White has been a "Wheel of Fortune" stalwart since the early '80s, but the beloved game show still means just as much to her now as it does to the fans watching at home — even if, as White admitted during an appearance on "Daily Pop," she initially thought she'd botched the audition due to nerves. "I wanted the job so badly and I didn't think I had any chance of getting it," White revealed, per E! News. Now that she's synonymous with "Wheel of Fortune," White couldn't imagine it any other way, though she never expected her tenure to last this long.

On what continues to make the show so compelling, White shared, "It's a family show that everyone of all ages can enjoy and there's no drama. It's excitement. It's fun." As for whether she'd ever consider moving on to new pastures, in 2017 the lovable host told ABC News there's no other job in the entertainment industry that could possibly be better for her. As host Pat Sajak memorably told "Nightline," "Somewhere along the line, we became more than a popular show. We became part of the popular culture." 

Their irresistible rapport is a major part of the show's continuing popularity, of course. As White told "Daily Pop," they get along brilliantly thanks to being similarly "easy-going" and "laid-back." However, although the TV personality asserted she and Sajak had never fought once, it seems White was forgetting one huge upset that haunts her to this day.
