Wheel of Fortune – Did You Know?!
Before becoming the host of Wheel of Fortune, Pat Sajak was a local weatherman for NBC’s Los Angeles affiliate.
Sajak and Vanna White only shoot Wheel of Fortune 35 days a year, and days on set are stretched out across nine months. When they do tape, they can shoot six shows within six hours.
There is only one wheel, and it weighs 2,400 pounds. The Wheel noise comes from 73 stainless steel pins which hit three rubber flippers. There is also only one puzzleboard. The current version is made up of 52 touch screen television monitors turned on their sides. There are 12 across in the top and bottom rows and 14 across the middle two rows.
