"The whole Maggie Sajak thing annoys me to no end. I cringe whenever they show her and her made-up 'social correspondent' job," one annoyed viewer wrote. "Yup! Thought they could just slip her in. It would be great if someone else had the chance to prove themselves," another agreed.
"She’ll take over for Pat and that’s just the way the world goes. Rich people set up their young to have it made. You’ll see it to your dying days," an additional user lamented about the possible decision.
The speculation comes after a long string of verbal mishaps by Pat on-air, leading many people to believe the end of the game show reign may be near.
