Although Sajak is quite active on social media, it's not everyday that the host of one of the longest-running game shows*, and a legend of TV entertainment, gets in touch. Of course, it wasn't unprovoked.
DeRusha had been watching Wheel of Fortune when he decided to broadcast a remark from his son, Seth.
"They're getting a little old," said the eight-year-old boy, referring to 67-year-old Sajak and ageless Vanna White.
Soon Sajak had jumped into the convo to make fun of himself:
As a boy growing up in Des Plaines, Illinois, DeRusha watched plenty of daytime television and became fixated on game shows -- an artificial reality where a wit reigns supreme but often at his own expense.
