‘Wheel of Fortune’ Is Replacing Vanna White With Pat Sajak’s Daughter Maggie on a Temporary Basis
Maggie Sajak, iconic Wheel of Fortune vet Pat Sajak’s daughter, is ready to fill in for Vanna White on the long-running show—at least temporarily. Yesterday, the country music singer took to her Instagram Story to share the exciting news that she’ll be the letter turner and cohost during Wednesday’s episode of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune while Vanna will be participating as a contestant for the very first time!
“Warming up for Wednesday,” Maggie captioned the vid of herself walking in front of the renowned game show board.
In a subsequent Story, she also reposted Jeopardy cohost Mayim Bialik’s announcement that she, too, will be partaking in Wednesday night’s competition against Vanna.
Another familiar face you’ll be seeing during the challenge? Mayim’s cohost Ken Jennings. All the celebs are set to compete against each other for a $1 million grand prize that will be donated to a charity of the winner’s choosing.
To promote her upcoming appearance, Maggie low-key checked off a lifelong bucket list item of mine (nope, not salty at all!) and appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, where she was behind the show’s bar.

^Not 😭 jealous 😭 at 😭 all 😭😭😭.
Oh, and FYI, this won’t be the first time the musician makes an appearance on Wheel of Fortune. In fact, she’s kind of a pro by now, having served as the series’ social correspondent since 2021. In that role, she not only shoots behind-the-scenes content and conducts interviews with the show’s staff and contestants, but she also goes on other programs as a representative of the program.
“The Wheel of Fortune staff and crew have always been like an extended family,” Maggie said in a statement at the time of her new position. “And I’m thrilled to be working with them. It’s a real privilege to be able to treat the show’s longtime viewers to a look at what goes on when the cameras aren’t rolling. Plus, I get to use the carpool lane with my father!”
