Pat Sajak, the host of Wheel of Fortune, has stated that neither he nor Vanna White will be appearing in the Wheel of Fortune LIVE! touring production this autumn. The Price Is Right LIVE!, which tours the programme to locations around the nation so that fans may participate in the show without having to go to Los Angeles, served as the inspiration for the new show. Both programmes, however, lack recognisable personalities and are not produced for television. In a tweet sent on Saturday, Sajak stated, “I want to be clear that Vanna and I are not engaged in any way with the Wheel of Fortune Live roadshow travelling the country this autumn. You must purchase tickets to attend since Sony has collaborated with a third party. Simply said, we don’t want anyone to be let down. ‘Beware the buyer’
Partnership news was made by Sony Pictures Television:
Wheel of Fortune will be shown in locations throughout the nation thanks to a collaboration between Sony Pictures Television, Right Angle Entertainment, and UTA that was first announced in May. The game functions just like the TV version, and participants have the chance to win prizes ranging from exotic vacations to $10,000 cash. Prizes will be given out at random to other audience members. According to Suzanne Prete, Executive Vice President of Game Shows for Sony Pictures Television, “this partnership with Right Angle presents an opportunity to expand our reach to give more people a live experience as close to being on the televised show as you can get without actually being in the studio.” “We are excited to provide this great local immersive experience to folks who would not otherwise be able to make it down to Los Angeles to be on the set with Pat and Vanna,” said the production company.
The Price Is Right LIVE! and this programme are comparable:
White and Sajak are not participating in the tour, according to a previous Instagram post by the Wheel of Fortune LIVE! organisers. The announcement states, “Unfortunately, Pat and Vanna won’t be attending the tour since they are filming shows at Sony Studios, but fantastic prizes and the game you love will be.” The wonderful host and co-host of the travelling show will be revealed at a later time, too. Fortunately for Betty White fans, the actress and comedian continued to chug along for an additional 33 years before saying her final goodbye. And now, with the actress gone, we can almost be certain Pat Sajak will feature more than a few Betty White-centric questions on “Wheel of Fortune” following the icon’s heartbreaking demise.
The Price Is Right LIVE!, a project of the show’s creators Fremantle and Good Games Live, is comparable to the programme. Similar to the Wheel tour, it similarly recreates the format in locations around North America without using the presenter from the TV version. The Price Is Right LIVE! tour kicks off in Calgary, Alberta on September 9 and kicks off its American leg in Augusta, Maine on September 28.
