A Princeton Grad Is Filling in for Vanna White
If you're a fan of Wheel of Fortune, you know that Vanna White has been filling in as the host of the popular game show while longtime host Pat Sajak recovers from surgery.
Yesterday, the show posted a video on its YouTube page where Sajak let fans know that he would return to hosting next week. In the meantime, White would continue filling in as host and on this week's shows, there would be a guest "letter toucher."
The "letter toucher" (formerly know as "letter turner") is the role that, according to wikipedia, White has had on the show since 1982.
This week's guest "letter toucher" is a 24-year old who attended Princeton University. Oh...and she has a famous dad who just happens to be the host of Wheel of Fortune.
That's right. Pat Sajak's daughter, Maggie, is serving as Wheel's guest "letter toucher" this week and according to oprahmag.com, she's a member of Princeton University's Class of 2016.
Oprahmag.com also notes that Maggie once pursued the dream of being a country music star.
According to the video posted on Wheel's YouTube page, this won't be Maggie's first appearance on the show. She previously appeared back in 1996 when she was just a year old.
