Trivia

In 1982 Susan Stafford decided to leave the show to pursue a career in humanitarian work. Three ladies tried out for the letter turning hostess job including Summer Bartholomew, Vicki McCarty and Vanna White. White was immediately picked as Stafford's permanent replacement, after being discovered, especially with her friendly personality. Her first appearance in that capacity, televised on Monday, December 13th, 1982 and the first letter she turned as the official hostess on the show was a "T". T is also a letter in all 4 hostess' last names. Evidence: Susan Stafford, Summer Bartholamew', 'Vicki McKarti (I)' & Vanna White. See more »
