Vanna White to step in for Pat Sajak as host of 'Wheel of Fortune'

BURBANK, Calif. -- "Wheel of Fortune" fans will see a first on Monday night: Vanna White is hosting a full show.

The episodes were filmed while regular host Pat Sajak recovered from emergency surgery for a blocked intestine.

White stepped in for 3 weeks' worth of shows.



In 1996, White played host for one segment when Sajak came down with laryngitis and couldn't finish the show as host.

He actually played White's role as a letter turner for that segment.
