WHEEL Of Fortune fans have been fuming over presenter Vanna White’s “hideous” new outfit – and they think Kim Kardashian may have played a part.
The presenter, 65, left viewers in shock when she wore “poots” in Wednesday’s episode – a term used to describe pants with built-in boots.

Kim is a big believer in the accessory and has been wearing “poots” with her outfits for many months now.
And Vanna appeared to pay tribute to the Kardashians star when she rocked a pair of black poots.
The Wheel Of Fortune co-host teamed the controversial accessory with a neon-pink asymmetric one-shoulder dress.
Fans slammed the outfit and claimed the Kardashians were to blame for the new look.
One wrote on a Kardashian online thread: “I didn’t believe my eyes at first but Vanna White is really rocking the poots right now.”
Another posted: “Omg I screamed when I saw this tonight. hideous!!”
“Not Kim influencing Vanna?? What is this crossover?!”
The backlash comes after Vanne recently revealed how she chooses her TV outfits.
During a Q&A on Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, an audience member asked about how Vanna picks out a different dress for each episode.
“No one’s ever asked me that!” she exclaimed, before revealing she has worn more than 7,500 different dresses throughout her 40 years on the show.
“Every fitting I do, which is typically once a week, or every other week, I must try on at least 50 dresses,” she continued. “And I’ve been doing that for 40 years.
“I’m exhausted!” Vanna added.
“I don’t get to keep the dresses. But the shoes and jewelry are mine.”
Vanna also revealed when asked what she wears at home: “Pajamas. No makeup, and slip on bunny slippers.”
Vanna has dished on her intense workout schedule in order to stun in the dresses designers send her.
In an interview with Yahoo Life, the TV personality acknowledged: “I’m not a young spring chicken anymore,” but that “it is what it is!”
“I do the best I can. I eat pretty good. I exercise. I just try to stay healthy, and be the best I can at my age.”
Earlier this month, Deadline reported Wheel had been renewed for another five years, through the 2027-2028 season.
That will take the beloved game show into its 45th season.
For the past 42 years, Pat has been the man behind the microphone.
Vanna joined him on the show in 1982 – a year after his debut.
But their current contracts are up after next season, and he has made no secret that his end is near.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight in September, he said: “Years go by fast. We’re getting near the end.
“In most television shows by this time, you would have said, ‘That’s probably enough,’ but this show will not die,” he told the outlet.
“It appears I may go before the show,” Pat added. ” We’re not gonna do this for another 40 years.”
While everyone loves Vanna, Pat’s popularity sank in September after a photo resurfaced showing him alongside a controversial political figure.
Fans are now wondering if they’ll renew their contracts, which are up next season, or if a certain someone will replace Pat.
