Thoughts on Pat Sajak’s Dismissal Eviction Retirement from Wheel of Fortune

[“breaking news! new wheel of fortune host revealed after Pat Sajak's sudden departure.”]

Very surprised, I thought Pat was going to be a lifer. I mean, why not? It’s an easy gig, you spend two or three out of 12 months out of the year recording the show, get paid a bundle, and spend the rest of the year doing what you want. He’s worth an estimated $65-75 million...nice work, if you can get it.

Pat and the show are all saying the right things, he’s supposedly staying on for a few seasons as a “consultant,” whatever that means. Still, I can’t help but wonder if Pat’s politics played a role here, he’s one of the few conservatives in entertainment and maybe that discordant note has been grating on the network long enough, which like every other network, wants to be all woke, all the time.

Did Pat perhaps object to the show discriminating against White contestants by increasing black representation to a third? I’d have loved to have been a fly on the wall when that conversation occurred, if it ever did, that is.

So Vanna isn’t getting promoted, understandable because she’s just a pretty face with no personality or sense of humor, but Ryan Seacrest isn’t much better. I first became aware of him on American Idol and couldn’t stand him then, and can’t stand him now. There's nothing I’ve heard from him that indicates he is anything but a woke tool and, if anything, would want even more black contestants on the show.

Oh well, at least they didn’t give it to Nick Cannon or dust Arsenio off and give him the job. That would have been the end for me. I might be able to somewhat stomach Seacrest. I tried to find something online about what may have happened behind the scenes to lead to this, but couldn’t find much of anything. Just this vaguely suggestive article:

That's a year away.Maybe Seacrest can get sucked into an airplane engine in the meantime and Pat will reconsider,in order to prevent Cedric the Entertainer or Steve Harvey from being the backup choice.

The other question:Is Vanna going to hang it up too?(She should.)Pat Sajak's gorgeous daughter is the perfect choice as she's already turned letters when Vanna filled in for Pat as host.

On "Celebrity Wheel of Fortune",airing as I write,the "celebrities" are as follows:

Francia Raisa
Joel Madden
Jenifer Lewis(black,you can tell by the first name misspell).

False advertising.

GRA:She says she "never wants to retire--it's depressing.'

(The Sun)VANNA White will stay on the board as letter presenter when Ryan Seacrest replaces Pat Sajak on Wheel of Fortune.

On Tuesday, the beloved game show announced that the American Idol host will usher in Wheel's next era when Pat retires in June 2024.

GRA:The big shots may have different plans though(like a young blackie).

How about this one:

"Only game show contestants allowed anymore"


No joke, tonight's show had 2 black contestants and one White one. I've seen that several times the last month or two. Working their way to black majority contestants?

The big news here is that a WHITE MALE was named as the new host. Apparently hetero, too. (Hey, what's with the prove-I'm-not-a-robot captcha? It said pick out all squares with crosswalks and none of the crosswalks were painted rainbow)
