Why not shoot your shot when the opportunity presents itself.
NFL Network’s Kyle Brandt appeared on “Wheel of Fortune” this Wednesday night. Before Pat Sajak let the games begin, he gave Brandt the floor to say something he’s been holding in for years.
Brandt announced to the world that “Wheel of Fortune” co-host Vanna White was his boyhood crush growing up.
“Pat, I’m thrilled to meet you, but Vanna, let’s just put the cards on the table,” Brandt said. “I say this respectfully, you’re a TV legend, my wife is here, you were my boyhood crush. I love you. For many years of my life, you were the puzzle I wanted to solve. And I’m so thrilled to be here.
“Do you have any advice for me, Vanna? Because you control the board. I love you, Pat but, to me, this is a Vanna show.”
Brandt’s willingness to embarrass himself on national TV made Sajak and White chuckle.
Moments like this are why Brandt is beloved by NFL fans. His energy on set is truly contagious.
For those wondering at home, White did give Brandt a few pointers regarding “Wheel of Fortune.” By the end of the episode, he won over $160,000 for his charity of choice.
That must be pretty cool confronting your boyhood crush.
