Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak reached his limit. He clapped back with a cryptic message to fans. They’ve been accusing him of hating the contestants that play on the game show. For months, he’s been the center of bad behavior. Some fans have called for his firing, while others want him to retire.
They would like to see his daughter, Maggie Sajak, replace him. They think she has more personality than her famous father. Others would like to see two women front the game show. Sajak hit his limit with all the criticism about his behavior. Read on to see what he had to say.
Pat Sajak had enough of Wheel of Fortune fans
After the latest episode of Wheel of Fortune, Pat Sajak shared a cryptic message with the viewers of the show. He apparently hit his limit with all the backlash about the way he treats the players. Sajak fired back with a cryptic message on Twitter. Fans noticed that she shaded a contestant they think he didn’t like.
In a new post on Twitter, the 75-year-old clapped back at Wheel of Fortune fans. He made it clear that there are bigger things to worry about these days. The interesting thing is that Sajak wasn’t responding in particular. He was seemingly fed up with the criticism of his behavior.
“You know what I think? Of course not. And why should you care what I think?” Pat Sajak cryptically wrote. “I’m a TV game show host. Now if I were a talk show host or a famous actor, that would be a different story. Then in my opinion would carry a lot of weight.”
It all started when one Wheel of Fortune fan claimed that they can tell when Sajak doesn’t like a certain player. They can tell by the way he acts during each game. In one episode this week, Sajak supposedly shared his disdain for one contestant. While most fans said all three contestants were the “worst,” they noticed that Sajak didn’t like one of them in particular.
You know what I think? Of course not. And why should you care what I think? I’m a TV game show host. Now if I were a talk show host or a famous actor, that would be a different story. Then my opinion would carry a lot of weight.

Television host slammed for his bad behavior
According to the Wheel of Fortune fans, Sajak was annoyed by a contestant named Erik. He kept making incorrect guesses and several errors. This caused Erik to lose out on some cool cash. One fan couldn’t help but wonder if Sajak hated the player.
“Anybody notice how when a contestant says, ‘I’d like to solve’ before they called a letter (rather than just blurting it out), Pat will kindly say they might want to call a letter first to get more money?” one fan wrote on Twitter during the episode. “Tonight he was so disgusted he just said, ‘Yeah, sure why not, go ahead who needs more money!'”
Sajak lost his cool when Erik had the chance to make easy money. Even though he knew the answer, he said, “I’d like to solve.” Sajak was annoyed by this point and responded, “Sure, go ahead.” Erik correctly solved, “A gentle giant,” to which Sajak sarcastically said, “Yeah, why not? Who needs more money these days?”
Wheel of Fortune fans has been calling out Sajak’s attitude on the show. They think it’s time for him to turn in his 40-year badge. What are your thoughts on his behavior? Sound off below in the comment section.
