Part of having a dad as famous as Pat Sajak is seeing him on TV from time to time. It just comes with the territory. But what happens when you’re out to dinner with him and the restaurant happens to be playing “Wheel of Fortune”?
You take a picture and wonder how the longtime game show host can be in so many places at once, of course. At least, that’s exactly what Maggie Sajak did when she was out enjoying a drink with her dad recently.
The 26-year old country music singer and online media correspondent for “Wheel of Fortune” posted a picture of Pat to her Instagram story. In the shot, Papa Sajak sits at a table with a TV behind him. The screen is clearly airing an episode of “Wheel of Fortune” as he holds up what appears to be a martini.
Maggie’s edits include arrows pointing both to the screen and her dad’s face, with “HOW IS HE IN TWO PLACES AT ONCE???” typed across the top. To really bring the piece together, she also added a GIF of Pat doing finger guns in the bottom left corner of the frame, writing “(or three)” in smaller font.
Pat Sajak: “Wheel of Fortune” host, father, and wizard. The man is in three places at once. Impressive stuff. And it’s even impressive when you look at the reality of it. Not only does Maggie get to hang out with him in person, but Pat’s also on national TV and is a GIF on Instagram. That kind of presence is indicative of achievement over a lifetime.
‘Wheel of Fortune’ Royalty Maggie Sajak and Her Role on the Show
Maggie Sajak recently took the role of being an online media correspondent for “Wheel of Fortune.” It’s just a part-time gig, however, as she is currently enrolled in law school.
For those who are unfamiliar with her academic achievements, Maggie graduated from Princeton University. After graduating, she earned a postgraduate degree from Columbia.
According to the “Wheel of Fortune” website, Maggie has a lot to offer the show.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to bring an insider’s look at the show with new behind-the-scenes features, interviews, videos and insights. The Wheel of Fortune staff and crew have always been like an extended family, and I’m thrilled to be working with them,” Maggie said.
