Think of all the celebrities you stan and please put them in a box to the left, because the only person anyone should spend their time obsessing over is the living, breathing legend known as Vanna White. You know, Vanna White? The ageless host of Wheel of Fortune who’s been walking back and forth pointing at letters since 1982?
Turns out Vanna is earning more for her job hosting Wheel of Fortune (or simply “Wheel,” as the cool people call it) than most of us will ever see in a lifetime. Here’s a breakdown of her net worth.
About Her ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Salary…
Oh hi, so Vanna has casually appeared in more than 6,600 episodes of Wheel of Fortune. How her hand has not literally fallen off by now is one of life’s wildest mysteries, right up there with why Khloé Kardashian is still dating Tristan Thompson.
Anyway, Vanna’s Wheel salary is contested. According to ABC, she makes a reported $ 4 million annually, but Celebrity Net Worth claims she makes closer to $ 10 million a year. Then there’s Forbes, which reports that her co-host Pat Sajak makes $ 15 million, so let’s hope Celebrity Net Worth is correct, otherwise, we’re dealing with a pretty suspect pay discrepancy.
Either way, Vanna films only *four days* a month, meaning she has the best job of all time and the rest of us are doing life wrong.
She Got $ $ $ in a Lawsuit
Back in ’93, Vanna sued Samsung for violating her “personality rights” after they aired a commercial featuring a robot turning letters on a game show. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court and Vanna walked away with $ 403,000 in damages.
Her Real Estate Holdings Are, Like, Whoa
In October 2017, she told ABC, “I’m a businesswoman. You know, I have other investments too, real estate. A long time ago, I would buy a house and flip it. But now everybody does that so I don’t do that anymore because there’s no houses out there to buy.”
So, What’s Her Total Net Worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, that would be $ 50 million. But when that mansion sells, you can probably expect her total net worth to just about double.
Vanna White, ladies and gentlemen, a woman who truly plays to win:
