Wheel of FortuneEdit

While usually a behind-the-scenes supporter of her husband, Lesly has several known direct connections to Wheel:

  • She was mentioned in the May 18, 1990 nighttime puzzle PAT AND LESLY SAJAK (Husband & Wife, also the last known instance of that category using AND rather than an ampersand until December 2001).
  • For the week of December 20, 1993, Lesly made her first known appearance: specifically, with Pat and Vanna White during the Walt Disney World tapings: dancing with some reindeer in front of the Magic Kingdom during the opening montage, and participating in various Christmas events at Walt Disney World during the credits.
  • On April 1, 1997, Lesly filled in for Vanna (as co-host to Alex Trebek) while Vanna and Pat played the game.
  • On March 6, 2008, she appeared in the closing chat to promote a line of Wheel-themed jewelry that she designed.
  • On December 13, 2011, she made a cameo (along with Pat and golfer Greg Norman) during Vanna's pre-Round 3 plug for the Reef Golf Course at Sandals Emerald Bay.
  • On February 14, 2012, the closing segment began with her and Pat promoting Sandals Emerald Bay before cutting back to them in the studio.
  • She was also brought up, along with Harry Friedman's wife, on the April 20, 2012 show: Pat mentioned that the two share a birthdate, but since it fell on a weekend that year he wouldn't be able to wish them a happy birthday.
  • For the Sandals Resorts Romance Week of February 11, 2013, Lesly appeared in some of the Sandals clips.
