Of the two Australian game shows bearing the title Wheel of Fortune (both produced by Reg Grundy), only the second program bore any relation to the long-running American series of the same name. In fact, the later Wheel of Fortune was a carbon copy of the American original, with an effusive host, an attractive "letter-turner," a giant revolving wheel, and a "Hangman"-style format. Unlike the American Wheel of Fortune, which for nearly two decades was presided over by Pat Sajak and Vanna White, there has been quite a turnover of hosts and female assistants since the Australian Wheel debuted in 1981.
