Pat Sajak | says he does not mind losing another Emmy to the late, big one Alex Trebek – not only because Alex deserves it, but also … Pat has learned to lower his expectations.
We got the legendary “Wheel of Fortune” host on Wednesday in Bev Hills and asked if he would be cool with Trebek, who took the world’s best honors at this year’s upcoming ceremony. The fact is, most people see Alex as a shoo-in … for his talent and for being the sentimental favorite.
Not too surprisingly, Pat told us he was more than fine with it … because honestly, what else would the guy say? But he took it a step further and repeated what Wayne Brady recently told us … explaining that he actually was rooting for AT, like most everyone else in biz.
When we now pointed out the obvious – namely that Pat has lost to Alex in the host category for game shows for many years now – he admitted it was funny too … compared himself to the soap opera star Susan Lucci, who was handed a Daytime Emmy a full 19 times before winning.
Like we said, PS mostly seemed to laugh here, but he promised to give us a HUGE scoop … about his retirement !!!
Chill, it’s not happening anytime soon, but see what he told us about where you first want to hear about it. Pat Sajak is not lying to us, would he ???
