Vanna White was born on February 18, 1957 in Conway, South Carolina, U.S.A. She is the daughter of Joan Marie and Miguel Angel Rosich. Her father was Puerto Rican. He abandoned the family and she took the name of her stepfather, Herbert Stackley White Jr., a former real estate agent. White was a cheerleader in school.

White dated Playgirl centrefold/Chippendales-dancer-turned-actor John Gibson in the 1980s, and they eventually became engaged. However, in 1986 Gibson was killed in a plane crash. During White's absence to mourn his death, former hostess Susan Stafford appeared on Wheel of Fortune for a week of episode.

There is no official information about her school or college life.


White's first appearance in a game show was on the June 20, 1980 episode of The Price Is Right, in which she was among the first four contestants. She did not make it onstage, but the clip of her running to Contestants' Row was rebroadcast as part of The Price Is Right 25th Anniversary Special in August 1996 and also was featured on the special broadcast Game Show Moments Gone Bananas. After Wheel of Fortune hostess Susan Stafford left in October 1982, White was chosen as one of three substitute hostesses (along with Vicki McCarty and Summer Bartholomew) to co-host the show. On December 13, 1982, White became the show's regular hostess and has remained as the show's daytime hostess.

White's popularity peaked after the syndicated version of Wheel of Fortune made its debut in September 1983. Her 1987 autobiography, Vanna Speaks, was a best-seller.

Marriage, Affairs and Divorce

She married George Santo Pietro on 31 December 1990. But after 12 years of marriage, they got divorced on 15 May 2002. They both had two children together. She is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs around 115 lbs. Vanna White is of the American nationality. However, her ethnicity is Spanish, English, Croatian, Italian, and German. According to a recent survey White has a net worth of $20 million USD.

Plastic Surgery

Wheel of Fortune hostess, Vanna White has tried to turn back the time with plastic surgery. She looks younger for her age

She possibly had a facelift and also a nose job. If we compare her photos before and after, there we will find a bit of change. Her face seems tighter than before. We guess what she did is successful. The facelift has made her looked 20 years younger, she’s almost like a 30 year old woman. A rhinoplasty was also used by her to refine the shape of her nose a bit.
