Pat Sajak roasts a guest after she can’t guess the puzzle in time
Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak wants people to know that he’s a nice guy. However, his actions and words don’t always line up with that image. In fact, he can sometimes be incredibly rude. He often cracks jokes at the expense of others and it doesn’t always sit well with viewers.
In the episode, the guest was having a really hard time guessing the final puzzle. The phrase ended up being “cute and fuzzy,” but she just couldn’t figure it out.
But instead of being sympathetic to the contestant, Pat Sajak decided to completely roast the guest.
“You could have stood here until the next ice age and tried, you weren’t going to get it,” the 75-year-old host told her.
Afterward, the internet lit up with angry Wheel of Fortune fans. They felt embarrassed for the player and didn’t think it was necessary for Pat to speak so rudely to her.
