This time of year marks the season of giving. Amid “Wheel of Fortune’s” ongoing Secret Santa festivities, Pat Sajak’s daughter Maggie Sajak spoke with one contestant who is proud to give to others through his own win. Check out the heartwarming conversation below.
In speaking with “Wheel of Fortune” contestant Rob, we learn he’s won an exciting Disney Cruise Line vacation. He shares with Maggie he looks forward to sharing it with his son–the same person who picked out his festive tie. Rob shared with Maggie, “I am [a big Disney fan] and now with my little boy, I’m trying to get that magic there.”
To which we all know he’ll be over the moon for.
But more importantly, the “Wheel of Fortune” contestant shared what it felt like to not only have won the cruise himself, but to have won it on behalf of one of the game show’s Secret Santa participants.
Rob shared with Maggie, “I love to give. So it doesn’t have to be a gift. I like to give time. [But] the thought of being able to give someone what I won is just over the top.”
As for that Secret Santa recipient, we hope you’ll share with us your gift. And, perhaps, consider taking this hardworking Outsider along?
‘Wheel of Fortune’s’ Pat Sajak Makes Comical Dig Regarding ‘Supply Chain Issues’
This time of year marks the premiere season for Secret Santa gift giving. However, we’ve also seen in recent years a major increase in overall supply chain issues. As Outsiders know, many have resulted from the side effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, industries internationally continue to see product shortages amid the holiday season.
In reference to those shortages, toy and gifts highlighting among them, the ever-comical “Wheel of Fortunate” host Pat Sajak shared a humorous quip on social media in reference to shortages on the show.
He wrote, “Due to supply chain issues, Wheel of Fortune players will be limited to three vowel purchases per show until further notice.”
The joke tied right in with contemporary social dilemmas. Although, we can only hope Sajak was joking on behalf of “Wheel of Fortune” players.
“Wheel of Fortune” fans joined in on Sajak’s joke in the comments beneath his Twitter post. One wrote, “They will also now be charged $475 per vowel due to inflation.” Another shared, “It’s my God-given right to buy all five vowels Pat.”
Others took Sajak’s joke a bit seriously, frequently tying into ongoing politics, while others demanded the price actually be raised. “Wheel of Fortune” viewers stated the price of vowels had remained the same for decades and that the proceedings of it have become overall stagnant.
