WHEEL of Fortune’s Vanna White has revealed the workout schedule she uses in order to fit inside the dresses designers send for her to wear on the show.
The Wheel of Fortune hostess has performed her co-hosting duties since her debut in 1982.
The TV personality acknowledged that time has passed, stating “I’m not a young spring chicken anymore,” but that “it is what it is.”
She then revealed her methods for remaining in shape and retaining her youthful vigor while aging in front of the American audience.
“I do the best I can. I eat pretty good. I exercise. I just try to stay healthy, and be the best I can at my age.”
She then added: “That’s all you can do.”
Vanna divulged that her preferred exercise is spinning, an activity that she routinely completes five days a week.
The 65-year-old also does push-ups and sit-ups.
The longtime hostess disclosed, “I’m still wearing these clothes that I’ve been wearing for the past 40 years,” before revealing she has “a fitting every couple of weeks.”

“I need to fit into these sample sizes. That keeps me encouraged.”
Vanna also provided beauty advice for the readers, stating “The best piece of beauty advice that I can offer is to wear sunblock, and not only on your face and your body, but your hands.”
“As we get older, you can tell a woman’s age by her hands…Don’t leave them out because you’re always driving and the sun’s always on them.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Vanna opened up about her life off-camera after being admired as a TV sex symbol for four decades.
Though she’s been labeled as such, the mother-of-two doesn’t see herself quite that way.
“I feel like I’m the same person I’ve always been growing up in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I really am myself,” she explained.
“On TV, I’m dressed up glamorous and so forth. But when I go home, I’m in sweats and jeans and tennis shoes — but I’m still the same person on the inside.”
“Through 40 years, we have had many changes. From the big shoulder pads to the skimpy dresses, I’ve worn it all,” she added.
“The designers send their latest clothes every year and I wear them. So it’s really up to them. It’s their style and I’m modeling their clothes. So the pressure really isn’t on me — I am who I am on TV. When I’m off TV, you’re just going to see me in jeans and no makeup.”
Vanna said that she’s had very little influence on what she’s worn over the years, which is why she doesn’t see herself as a “sex symbol” necessarily.
“I’m just so simple and comfortable and not glammed out all the time. I feel like I’m just that country girl.”
As previously mentioned, the game show icon has been hosting for 40 years and told Yahoo Life that her role has never become boring.
“I have a different dress on, we have different puzzles. So I treat every show like it is brand new and it’s so much fun.”
The hostess was married to George Santo Pietro for 12 years and the pair shares two kids Nikko, 28, and Gigi, 25.
The couple divorced in 2002, and Vanna claimed she finally met her “soulmate”, John Donaldson, in 2012.
“I don’t see us ever being apart. He is my soulmate and I’m extremely happy,” she gushed.
COMING TO AN END
Currently, Vanna and Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak, 75, are signed on to continue their longtime gigs through the 2024 season, though Pat recently suggested that he may be preparing to step down.
After hosting for four decades, a role he has held since 1981, Pat teased his upcoming retirement in an interview with ET.
He told the outlet: “In most television shows by this time, you would have said, ‘That’s probably enough,’ but this show will not die.”
“It appears I may go before the show,” Pat added.
The television personality talked about his 40-year-long post and what he envisions for his career in the future, admitting, “the end is near.”
“Years go by fast. We’re getting near the end. It’s been a long [time]. We’re not gonna do this for another 40 years. The end is near,” Pat explained.
“It’s an honor to have been in people’s living rooms for that long. People were out there welcoming us. We’re happy and proud.”
Pat and Vanna are currently focused on the season three premiere of their spin-off series, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune.
The upcoming season will see a slew of A-list celebrities competing to win $1million for charity.
