While talking to ET, the longtime TV stars were asked how much longer they will be leading Wheel of Fortune.
Pat, 74, told the outlet: “We’re certainly closer to the end than the beginning.
“I’d like to leave before people tune in and look at me and say, ‘Ooh, what happened to him?’”
“I wouldn’t bet on seeing us in, like, 10 years, I would say,” Pat continued, before asking Vanna, “Is that fair [to say]?”
The 64-year-old responded: “Probably, yes. We’ve been together for like 38 years and he’s like my brother.
“He’s funny. I mean, we could finish each other’s sentences if we wanted to. We know each other that well.”

The two will at least be on the air for another two years as they recently signed on to continue hosting through the 2024 season.
Pat is also now a consulting producer.
Vanna and Pat took over hosting duties from Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford, who hosted from 1975 to 1981, and are said to have left over a salary dispute.
KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY
While Pat may depart from his position in the near future, he will still have a family member working on the program.
Pat’s daughter Maggie, 26, is currently working on the program as a social correspondent, as she shoots behind-the-scenes clips and interviews with the show’s staff and contestants.
Aside from Maggie, Pat and his wife Lesly Brown, are also parents to son Patrick, 31.
As for Vanna, she is a mom to son Nikko, 27, and daughter Gigi, 24, with her ex husband George Santo Pietro.
JEOPARDY! HOSTING HEADACHE
While the famous wheel-spinning show will have its familiar hosts on screen, the same can’t be said for another iconic program: Jeopardy!.
Following the death of Alex Trebek, the show went through various guests hosts before confirming Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings will split hosting roles for the rest of the season.
Mike Richards was previously named permanent host of Jeopardy! on August 11, however, drama quickly ensued when he was accused of calling a female co-host a “slut” on his old podcast.
Less than two weeks later Mike would step down, and explain in a statement: “It pains me that these past incidents and comments have cast such a shadow on Jeopardy! as we look to start a new chapter.
“…However, over the last several days it has become clear that moving forward as host would be too much of a distraction for our fans and not the right move for the show.”
