Pat Sajak Teases His Retirement And Was Also Pictured With Margorie Taylor Green

September 18, 2022 / Posted by:

The end is near according to TV host and eternal curmudgeon Pat Sajak. Well, the end of Pat’s run at the Wheel of Fortune, anyway. We have a least seventyish more years until the world gets too hot for us to be outside. Yes, the wheel that grants its contestants trips to the Bahamas or bankruptcy will no longer have Pat by its side. We’re entering a world where Vanna White isn’t smiling nervously while Pat insults contestants or solving the puzzles himself on-air. This trainwreck is approaching the station!

While there’s no set date for Sajak’s departure, it’s been a long time coming. Rumors have swirled for some time that Pat’s heart isn’t in it anymore and his crankiness is getting on the producers’ last nerves. To be fair, he’s been hosting the show since 1981 which means he’s been watching that wheel spin for over 40 years. That’s enough to make anyone insane! Now, according to People, Pat is finally ready to leave it all behind:

“In most television shows by this time, you would have said, ‘That’s probably enough,’ but this show will not die,” Sajak, 75, told Entertainment Tonight.

Wheel of Fortune began in 1975, and Sajak came on board in 1981. In his four-decade tenure, Sajak and co-host Vanna White, 65, have become the faces of the series.

Looking ahead to his next steps in life, the emcee said, “It appears I may go before the show.”

“Years go by fast,” Sajak acknowledged. But, he said, “We’re getting near the end. It’s been a long [time]. We’re not gonna do this for another 40 years. The end is near.”

“This show will not die”? I guess the wish he made on that monkey’s paw for everlasting fame was more than he bargained for. It’s a wonder that Pat has stayed on for so long considering the palpable contempt he has for the show and its contestants. Maybe he owes the wheel some money? Everyone knows that that bitch can turn on you on a dime! Once Pat says his goodbye, it isn’t particularly clear what he’ll get up to. But if a picture that is making the rounds is any indication, he’ll be hobnobbing with America’s crème de la crème!

And that pic is getting Pat dragged on Twitter:

To those that have kept up with Pat’s antics outside of Wheel of Fortune (there are dozens!), it’s no real surprise that he’s hanging out with Marjorie Taylor Greene. He’s been fairly vocal on social media about his political views.

That’s the kind of insightful, exciting content we can expect once Pat has more free time post-Wheel of Fortune. For a guy who’s been doling out clues for 40 years, it’s amazing he still doesn’t have one!
