Wheel of Fortune's April Fools Prank

This has been a rather eventful week for the show. Yesterday, the show had an unexpected surprise when instead of Pat Sajak entering with Vanna White, 30 Seconds to Mars lead singer and Academy Award winner Jared Leto stepped out and assumed hosting responsibilities with no explanation, and as quickly as he arrived, Pat returned and continued hosting like normal. It was really one of those blink and you'll miss it cameos.


Make sure you tune into NBC to see how Aaron does.
