Pat Sajak Admits He Sometimes Hosted 'Wheel of Fortune' Drunk

Well, not recently, but in the past he’s done it more than once

ESPN2’s Dan Le Batard of Dan Le Batard Is Highly Questionable had Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak on the air, and the best question (other than “Tell me what Vanna White smells like”) is, “Have you ever done Wheel of Fortune a little bit drunk?”

Sajak doesn’t skip a beat and says yes. "When I first started and was much younger and could tolerate those things," he said, explaining that they would take two-and-a-half hour dinners at a local Mexican restaurant with great margaritas.

“Vanna and I would go across and have two or three or six and then come and do the last shows and have trouble recognizing the alphabet. They're really good tapes to get a hold of,” he said.

Watch the full discussion below, starting at 1:05. The average number of margaritas a night? “Cuatro,” he said.
