Pat Is Retiring As A Host From Wheel Of Fortune

Through his Twitter, he announced that his 41st season of the show would be his last season on the show. 

The season will begin in September. However, he will be a consultant for the show for three years after retiring from the front. 

There are no details on who will be the show's new host. 

Pat Talked About His Near-Death Experience

In 2019, Pat felt unbearable pain and was wheeled into emergency surgery. 

In an interview, he said that he took a morning walk with his daughter like other days and came back home and got ready for work, and all of a sudden, he had horrific pain in his stomach. 

He didn’t know what happened to him. Two and a half hours later, he was taken for surgery. 

He has an intestinal blockage. He said the pain was so intense that none of the drugs worked to ease his pain. 

He said they gave one drug to him, and after that, he didn't feel his pain. Instead, he saw beautiful pastels and faces in front of him. 

He felt like his wife and daughter, who were beside him, were miles apart. At that moment, he thought that it must be what death feels like. 

He said he was not heartbroken that he was going to die. 

He was sad for his wife and kids, thinking their lives would change dramatically after his death. 

He felt terrible for them as they had to deal with such a thing. Fortunately, he was high on medicine, and that was his imagination. 

His surgery was ultimately successful. He didn’t have any complications after the surgery. 

Pat Talked About Being Out From The Show For Months

Because of the surgery, Pat was off as the host for almost a month. 

He said that in his forty years of working with the show, he had never missed one, so it was extraordinary. 

He said that it felt weird with the fact that the show was running without him. He said it was troubling for him to stay away from the front. 

Vann Trouper hosted the show on behalf of him. He said she was a team player and did a pretty good job.
