"No other city in America says excitement quite like Las Vegas," said Executive Producer Harry Friedman. "Bright lights, big money, big-name stars, and non-stop fun. Wheel of Fortune and Las Vegas are a perfect fit."

"One of the great things about taking 'Wheel' to other cities is that we get a chance to actually meet the people from around the country who have made the show so successful," said host Pat Sajak. "That's especially true about Las Vegas, because it's such a popular vacation destination. Not only do we get to spend time in one the world's most exciting cities, we get to meet and entertain viewers from virtually every state in the nation."

"I always look forward to going to Las Vegas to shoot Wheel. It's one of my favorite cities!," said co-host, Vanna White.
