Vanna White stepped in to host while Pat Sajak took time off for a since-resolved medical issue in late 2019. Since then, people have thought that she would be the next host should Sajak leave the show. However, White says that she wouldn’t be enthused to host the hit game show.
In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, Vanna told Mo Rocca that she was “so nervous” and that she isn’t big on hosting again:
“Uhm, it’s not at the top of my list. I loved being there, I loved doing it. But I was so nervous. Maybe if I did it a few more times, I would feel better about it. But I’m my worst critic.”
Amid her reservations about her hosting abilities, Pat Sajak praised White for her willingness to step in for what could’ve been a tough time for the show.
“The fact that she did it speak volumes about her. It would have been very easy for her to say, ‘I’m sorry, this is not what I do.’ But the audience was rooting for her and almost proud to see her up there.”
