The wheel can be a fortune for winners. It sure is a fortune for Pat and Vanna.
Some of us likely won’t admit it, but I do not know a person who hasn’t watched at least a few episodes of Wheel of Fortune.
The show has been around for a remarkable 36 years. Did you know:
Pat and Vanna work 4 days a month. They record 3 shows every second Thursday morning, 3 again on Friday morning and they do the same for those afternoons. Not too shabby getting a “full-time” job working just 36 days a year.
So if they are working just 36 days a year, surely their salaries reflect this…not. Pat Sajak makes around 12 million dollars a year (or about a bazillion Canadian dollars) and Vanna is no slouch either at 8 million a year.
I’ve got my resume in for when Pat retires. So does my wife for Vanna’s retirement.
And we are reasonable too. We’ll take our salaries in Canadian funds. It still would be a wheel fortune!
