Vanna White Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Vanna White is a famous American actress, model, as well as a television personality. To the public, Vanna White is perhaps best known as a hostess of the popular game show created by Merv Griffin called “Wheel of Fortune”. The show debuted on television screens in 1975 and was originally hosted by Susan Stafford and Chuck Woolery. However, in 1982 they were replaced by Pat Sajak and Vanna White, who have been hosting the show ever since. Considered to be the longest-running game show, “Wheel of Fortune” has aired more than 6 000 episodes up to date. Needless to say, the show has remained popular among its audience over the decades and even inspired more than 60 international adaptations worldwide. The show also inspired the release of several “Wheel of Fortune” boards, as well as video games.

Even though Vanna White is best known as a hostess of the popular game show, she has also been making appearances on other television projects, including “The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!”, “Naked Gun: The Final Insult” with Leslie Nielsen, Priscilla Presley, George Kennedy and O. J. Simpson, “Graduation Day” and “Married… with Children” starring Ed O’Neill, Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate and David Faustino.

A well-known actress, how rich is Vanna White? In 1993, White settled a lawsuit with “Samsung Electronics America Inc”, whom she sued for the usage of an image of a robot turning letters in a manner similar to the “Wheel of Fortune” show, which was featured in an advertisement. Upon the agreement, White received $403 000. In 2003, Vanna White added $4 million of earnings from “Wheel of Fortune”, while her annual salary is said to be $8 million. In regards to her total wealth, Vanna White’s net worth is estimated to be $30 million.

Vanna White was born in 1957, in South Carolina, US. White’s first major television appearance was in a game show entitled “The Price Is Right”, where she competed with three other contestants. Even though White did not win the main prize, her appearance gained her a position as a hostess on “Wheel of Fortune” when Susan Stafford left the show. When Vanna White’s popularity rose, she started to be featured in other television projects as well. In 1988, White made an appearance in a fantasy film called “Goddess of Love”, where she starred alongside David Naughton, Amanda Bearse and David Leisure. However, the movie received largely negative reviews, while some of the critics even deemed White’s acting as “bad”. This did not prevent White from making future on-screen appearances, as she starred in, “Simon and Simon”, a sitcom starring Bob Saget, John Stamos, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, another entitled “Full House”, a legal drama series “L.A. Law” and a situational comedy “227”.

In addition to acting, Vanna White has released an autobiographical book entitled “Vanna Speaks!”, which made it to the list of best-sellers, and was featured in an issue of a “Playboy” magazine.

A famous actress, Vanna White has an estimated net worth of $30 million.
