Pat Felt His Death

In 2019, Pat had to deal with a health condition that made him feel he wouldn't survive. 

When Pat returned home from a morning walk and was getting ready for his work, he suddenly felt hard pain in his stomach. 

He was so much in pain that he was immediately rushed to the hospital, and within two and a half hours, he was having surgery. 

He had an intestinal blockage where his intestine got tangled and worked against each other. 

Because of that, it was killing tissues of his body that nearly killed him too. 

Pat remembered him lying on the bed, and the drug given to him was not working. 

He felt that he would not come back out the surgery alive and was worried about how his children's and wife's lives would be without him.

Pat Retiring From The Show 

Pat is famously known for being the host of Wheel of Fortune. His journey started on the Wheel of Fortune way back in 1981

Before landing on the big TV show, he was just a local weather guy.

Now, he has worked for more than four decades in the show managing to host 40 seasons. 

However, on June 14, 2023, Pat revealed his retirement through Twitter

He opened up that he will be hosting his 41 seasons, his last season this September, before saying goodbye to the show forever. 

The whole journey in the game show was a wonderful experience for Pat, and as the show host, he had the experience of people coming to him and telling him that their child learned the alphabet from his show. 

People have great memories of Pat's Game Show. He is so grateful for being part of it.

Pat's Popular Show, Wheel Of Fortune

Pat worked as a weather guy before he was offered to host Wheel of Fortune. He discovered that the weather job was one of the best jobs in Los Angeles

He recalled a memory of his days when he did a stupid thing. So he had to work with some anchors and talk about the weather. 

He had kept a band-aid on his face, and every time, he changed the position of the band-aid. 

That was stupid, and he didn't know why he did it. That silly thing dragged the attention of Merv Griffin.

Merv Griffin is the creator of Wheel of Fortune, and Merv found it funny, so he approached Pat and offered him the job of working on the game show. 

He first denied it and told Merv that he wasn't a good fit for hosting. However, Merv insisted, finally he agreed on being the host of the game show.
