Pat Sajak, a Wheel of Fortune legend, was left speechless when a contestant revealed their special skill, which targeted his role as show host. Ryan Seacrest will take over for Sajak at the end of this season, who has hosted the program since 1981. Clips from a recent episode have begun to circulate online, leaving Sajak perplexed by one contestant’s comments about how he spent his time.
Sajak got to know the guests who appeared on the episode and introduced them to viewers in the studio and at home. In the February 2 episode, Sajak stated, “People like to brag about their skills. “I am not sure I would brag about this one.” The guest then said, “You’re an expert at Simon Says.”
The host was taken aback when Joel responded, “You wouldn’t believe how often that comes in handy.” You simply find yourself in a situation where someone needs to fill a void for a short period of time. Joel then turned the tables on the host, saying: “You know something about that.”
The comment immediately surprised Sajak, who then turned to look around in confusion. The audience burst out laughing at this point, while the host smiled and concluded, “I got it, actually.”
When this article was published, the video had over 11,600 views on YouTube, 8,700 on TikTok, and 19,000 on Facebook. A show fan on Facebook commented on how “great” that episode was, while many others lamented Sajak’s departure from the show, despite the fact that he still has some time on it.
This isn’t the first time Sajak has acted sassy towards a contestant. Last month, he told winning contestant Angela to “shut up” jokingly because she was so excited to be on the show and win.
