Pat Sajak Ripped As Wheel Of Fortune Winner Breaks Rules

Viewers have taken to social media in outrage. These viewers agree that Pat Sajak made a huge mistake during Tuesday’s episode of Wheel Of Fortune.

Nadine, Mike, and Kayla were competing to solve a crossword puzzle with the clue “butter” to help them out.

With just two blanks remaining, she was fairly confident about what the crossword said.

Nadine told Pat she could solve the crossword. The Wheel of Fortune game host responded by reminding her of the game rules. She was to say the answers and nothing extra. After making it clear she understood, she responded with the answer.

Now, the answers were: “Fly, fingers, bean, and nut.”

When Nadine said her answers she slipped up at the end and said the word “nuts” instead of “nut.” Even the closed captioning on the episode picked up the word “nuts.”
