Pat Sajak recently admitted during an interview that he and co-host Vanna White would frequently get drunk before hosting Wheel of Fortune, but they're not the only celebrities and high-profile people to make drunken T.V. appearances.
Sajak, 65, appeared on ESPN2's Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable and admitted when asked by Batard that sometimes he and his co-host White lapped up some margaritas before filming the game show.
Vanna and I would go across and have two or three or six (margaritas), and then come and do the last shows and have trouble recognizing the alphabet, he said on ESPN2.
Sajack said the duo would go on extended breaks for about two and a half hours at a nearby restaurant while they waited for prizes to be brought into the California set.
I had a great time. I have no idea if the shows were any good, but no one said anything, so I guess I did okay.
While Sajack admitted that he and White used to get intoxicated quite often since they began hosting Wheel of Fortune in 1983, the act is a thing of the past.
When I first started and was much younger and could tolerate those things, we had a different show then, he said, adding the pair no longer gets drunk before the show.
Now, if I were to inhale the cork and a bottle of wine I would probably keel over, I'm getting a little older for this, he admits. They're really great tapes to get a hold of.
