As many watch Steve lash out at players and belittle them, fans think he may be heading in the same direction as Pat. Furthermore, the source says, “Steve’s king of the hill and has become an intrinsic part of the show’s success — but insulting contestants and calling their answers stupid right to their face is the last thing people need.” But something seems to be going awry. Unlike Steve’s happy-go-lucky mood where he playfully hassles the contestants in jest, his latest pattern has more of an angry feel to it.

Trouble On The Homefront

While the reason isn’t clear, some believe his daughter, Lori Harvey’s high-profile relationships attribute to the stress at home. The source says, “Lori’s had a high-profile love life that seems to be going nowhere, and Steve wonders when she’ll ever settle down.” Some of the links to the model are Damson Idris, Michael B. Jordan, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Trey Songz, Future, Justin Combs, and Andrew Tate. Additionally, they add, “Everyone’s hoping this is just a phase of his and not Sajak-gate all over again!” According to Closer Weekly, Pat Sajak was pushed into early retirement due to his “offensive behavior toward contestants and even cohost Vanna White.” Although Pat said the last year was very difficult, he didn’t mention irritation with contestants. Instead, he believed he could have kept going a few years, but didn’t want to outstay his welcome by overdoing it.
