“Wheel of Fortune” was created by Merv Griffin back in 1975. The American version is hosted by Pat Sajak and Vanna White. Here are the five most stunning moments from the show.
1. A woman solves the “Wheel of Fortune” puzzle with one letter – Pat Sajak has a stunned look as she asks to solve the puzzle and then she gets it correct!
2. The biggest cash moment for “Wheel of Fortune” and one lucky winner was over a “Leaky Faucet” – the puzzle was solved in a bonus round on 10-14-2008 as the show paid its first million dollar winner.
3. Pat Sajak kisses Vanna White because they had 15 minutes left on the show. The creator Merv Griffin walks on stage and breaks it up as the audience claps and cheers for Pat and Vanna. We’ll never know if they planned all of this ahead of time, like so many of their little “skits”.
4. Pat Sajak says he’s tired of people asking him if he wears a hair piece. He tells Vanna that he has decided to reveal his true self and asks her to remove his hair piece, he’s then shown bald on camera. In reality, Pat went through extensive make-up to appear bald and didn’t tell Vanna about it because he wanted her to look surprised.
5. Pat Sajak spins the wheel for one too many “Final Spins” after 3 spins falling on “Bankrupt” he finally hits $5000. This is from 1989, the woman who won tells Pat, “I just won a lot of money”.
