Vanna White is celebrating her 80th birthday this year, after more than 50 years of hosting the popular game show "Wheel of Fortune".


Before her appearance on TV in 1980, White was a contestant in the Miss Georgia USA 1978 pageant.

In 1980, White acted in a film that was not completed; the film was subsequently edited and released in June 1990 as Gypsy Angels.

After Wheel of Fortune hostess Susan Stafford left in October 1982, White was selected as one of three substitute hostesses (along with Vicki McCarty and Summer Bartholomew) to co-host the show.

On November 8, 2019, Sony Pictures Television announced that White would temporarily take over hosting Wheel of Fortune as MC starting with the week of episodes which were slated to air starting on December 9, 2019. The announcement was made after a taping day was postponed after Pat Sajak was hospitalized with a blocked intestine and needed emergency surgery in order to clear it. White hosted that taping day and the subsequent rescheduled taping day the next day.

Subsequently, the show went on hiatus during Christmas week (December 23, 2019) and then a week of previously-taped "America's Game" episodes (Wheel tapes six episodes per day, with each studio audience receiving three shows each; the third show in the afternoon session is an "America's Game" episode) that Sajak hosted, before White returned to hosting on January 6, 2020, for a final week; she was assisted by a "special guest", (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

When White was five, her grandmother taught her how to crochet. White had lost interest in the hobby over time until, on the Wheel of Fortune set, she noticed her pregnant hairdresser was crocheting a baby blanket for herself. White told her that she previously crocheted and asked the hairdresser to help her relearn crochet.
