Maggie Sajak congratulates Vanna White on her 'Wheel of Fortune' performance
Vanna White faced off against two titans of trivia on last night's "Celebrity Wheel of Fortune."
The longtime letter turner, 66, became a contestant during the May. 10 episode, competing against "Jeopardy!" hosts Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik to earn money for charity.
While White didn't snag the win in the end -- that honor went to Jennings -- she got support from her fill-in for the evening, Maggie Sajak, who took over letter-turning duties.

"It was an HONOR filling in for you tonight @officialvannawhite!" Maggie Sajak, host Pat Sajak's 28-year-old daughter, wrote on Instagram. "And congrats on raising $30,000 for @stjude! 🧡."
White replied in the comments section, "You did a great job Maggie!"
Prior to the episode, White took to Instagram and expressed how nervous she was to find herself playing the role of a contestant for the first time since she joined the series in 1982.
"I think we're all out of our comfort zone, but no matter what our charities will win!" White captioned a post featuring a photo with her, Jennings and Bialik.

At the end of the episode, White jokingly told Pat Sajak, "I think I'll keep my day job."
Pat Sajak, 76, who began hosting "Wheel of Fortune" in 1981, praised his daughter for her performance, telling her, "It was good to work with you."
Maggie Sajak previously filled in for White when her father underwent emergency surgery in November 2019 for blocked intestine and White took over for him as host.
