Pat Sajak undergoes emergency surgery, Vanna White to host 'Wheel of Fortune' in his place

Pat Sajak, the longtime host of Wheel of Fortune, underwent a successful emergency surgery for a blocked intestine. The show made the announcement on its social media channels Friday. Vanna White will host in Sajak's absence.

"Our taping on Thursday was canceled because host Pat Sajak underwent successful emergency surgery to correct a blocked intestine," the statement read. "He is resting comfortably and looking forward to getting back to work. Taping resumed today as scheduled and Vanna White has stepped in as host."

Sajak, 73, was photographed Monday appearing to be in good health as he celebrated producer and friend Harry Friedman, who received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. White, 63, and Alex Trebek, 79, were also in attendance at the ceremony. The Jeopardy! host has been dealing with health issues of his own as he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Sajak and White have been part of the syndicated version of Wheel of Fortune since 1983. In their three-plus decades of co-hosting the show, White told Fox News they have only gotten in one fight — over a hot dog.

"Believe it or not, Pat Sajak and I have only had one argument in 36 years and that was over putting ketchup on a hotdog," she said, explaining her go-to condiments are ketchup and mustard, while Sajak strictly uses ketchup. "I agree it is [weird]," she added.

Wheel of Fortune is the longest-running syndicated game show in the U.S. with the show taping it's 7,000th episode last year. In May 2019, Sajak was honored with the Guinness World Records title for having the longest career as a game show host for the same show surpassing The Price Is Right’s Bob Barker. Season 37 of Wheel of Fortune premiered in September.

I thought Dirty Harry already set the rule that ketchup was an improper condiment for a hot dog:

Ketchup goes on hamburgers,
mustard goes on hot dogs.
Laws of nature!

Is White doing double duty or is she doing Sajak's job while someone
else does hers?

Since the letters don't even need to be turned anymore - all she does is
walk over and touch letters that someone behind the scenes reveals - her
duties could be performed by an inanimate carbon rod.

duties could be performed by an inanimate carbon rod.
She actually does light up the letters. There is an insulated surround
around each of the LED screens. The surround contains two wires. When
Vanna presses the surround, the wires make contact and the screen
lights up. (Occasionally this does not work very well.) I think it's
important to the producers than Vanna have a role in the process, and
doesn't just pretend to have one.

The letters can also be lighted remotely, and frequently are.

It seems Wheel of Fortune host PAT SAJAK underwent emergency intestinal blockage surery.
"Vanna, I'd like to buy a bowel, please"

No, it's all alimentary.
