The veteran game show host's behavior — including mocking and scolding contestants and a recent string of bizarre tweets — “has become a sore topic of conversation among the show’s producers and, of course, among fans,” the insider says. “The word is that unless he gets his act together, he might just find himself getting a pink slip.”

White, 65, who’s worked alongside Sajak, 75, for more than 40 years, “did a fine job filling in for him when he was in the hospital a while back and has already proved herself more than capable of hosting the show,” explains the insider.

Adds the source, “Plus, there’s been zero drama from her since the day she set foot on that soundstage.”

While the letter-turner isn’t trying to steal Sajak's job, “the producers need and appreciate Vanna more than ever,” the insider adds. “If Pat doesn’t turn things around, Vanna could be taking the wheel soon!”

The producers aren't the only ones worried — Sajak is also reportedly feeling the pressure following his string of embarrassing mishaps. As OK! previously reported, the host is even considering quitting before they can fire him.

"He's really feeling the stress from all angles right now, and the word is that he's wondering if it's worth sticking around," an insider dished. "He's not a quitter by any means, but it's not lost on him that he has plenty of other opportunities outside of the game show."

Sajak is at "a point where most people his age are winding down," the insider pointed out of the 75-year-old TV personality who has hosted Wheel of Fortune since 1982.

"Pat wouldn't step aside in a huff or anything like that. He has too much class and respect for everyone involved in the show after everything they've done for him," noted the insider. "But there's a lot to be said for going out on a high and doing it on his own terms. He's feeling torn and carefully considering all of his options."
