Brandt, who appeared on the popular game show as a celebrity guest, used his time to reveal his “boyhood crush” on White, much to the delight of the audience and the amusement of host Pat Sajak.
“I’ve had a crush on Vanna White since I was a kid,” Brandt confessed to Sajak. “I used to watch the show every night and just dream of one day being able to stand next to her.”
Sajak, ever the jokester, couldn’t resist teasing Brandt about his confession. “Well, you’ve got your chance now,” he quipped. “Just don’t make any sudden moves.”
Brandt, undeterred by Sajak’s ribbing, continued to gush over White, telling her that she was the “most beautiful woman in the world.”
“Vanna, you are absolutely stunning,” Brandt said. “I’ve always admired you from afar, and I’m so honored to be here tonight.”
White, who seemed to be taken aback by Brandt’s declaration, simply smiled and thanked him for his kind words.
However, Brandt wasn’t quite done yet. He then turned to the audience and made a bold proclamation.
“I just want to say that I love Vanna White,” Brandt declared. “I’ve loved her since I was a boy, and I’ll love her forever.”
The audience erupted in cheers and applause, while Sajak and White exchanged knowing glances.
Brandt’s wife, actress Haley Lu Richardson, who was sitting in the audience, couldn’t help but laugh at her husband’s outburst.
“I guess I’m not the only one who has a crush on Vanna White,” she joked with a wink.
Brandt’s confession of love for White quickly went viral on social media, with fans of the show taking to Twitter to express their amusement and support.
“Kyle Brandt is my new hero,” tweeted one fan. “He’s not afraid to go after what he wants, and I respect that.”
Another fan wrote, “I can’t believe Kyle Brandt said he loves Vanna White on Wheel of Fortune! That was so sweet and unexpected.”
While Brandt’s confession may have been unexpected, it certainly made for a memorable moment on “Wheel of Fortune.” And who knows, maybe it will even spark a new romance between the two stars.
