In a shocking revelation, we are learning that Vanna White has not had a pay raise in 18 years.  Meanwhile, retiring "Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak is said to make several times more money, as much as five times apparently. 


White is currently the favorite at 2-1 to become the show's next host after turning letters for the past few decades.  But Vanna is more than just a letter turner, she's part of the "Wheel of Fortune" brand.

Vanna has hired an aggressive new lawyer and is finally asking for more.  Good for her.

The iconic "Wheel of Fortune" game show hostess currently makes $3 million. 

Sajak ,76, announced his retirement via Twitter last week.

“I’ve decided that our 41st season, which begins in September, will be my last.”

He will continue working for the show as a consultant over the next three years, at least.

Sajak has been hosting the show since 1981.  White joined the show in 1982.

“I couldn’t be happier to have shared the stage with you for all these years with one more to come,” Ms. White wrote. She briefly stepped in for Mr. Sajak in 2019, when he needed emergency surgery to fix a blocked intestine.
