Longtime Wheel of Fortune co-host Vanna White is reportedly planning to stay on with the game show while she negotiates her contract renewal after her co-host Pat Sajak announced his departure earlier this month.
White – who, like Sajak, has been with the game show for over four decades – is aiming for a future with Wheel of Fortune beyond season 41. Puck reported first.
An agreement is yet to be reached, although one of their demands, according to Puck, is for a pay raise as she hasn’t had one in 18 years.
White currently makes $3 million a year for her work on the game show, while Sajak makes five times as much as his co-host.
Sony Pictures Television could not be immediately reached for comment.
“I just imagine how we are just there. I can’t think beyond that,” she said.
“I can not imagine that. Everyone associates “Wheel of Fortune” with Pat and Vanna. We’re like Ken and Barbie, you know? We’ve all been at home for 40 years, so it would be weird if someone else turned my letters over.”
