Pat Sajak has seen his fair share of interesting, wild, and weird answers from contestants on “Wheel of Fortune” over the years. One contestant’s puzzle guess, though, threw him into a tizzy.
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly and a savvy Twitter follower, you get a chance to see the entire breakdown for Sajak.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the longtime “Wheel of Fortune” host jokingly — but with surprising intensity — scolded a contestant for protesting the answer to a crossword puzzle during the game. The contestant, Darin McBain, had to guess four expressions that begin with the word “kitchen,” correctly answering, “Cabinet, towels, oven, sink.”
“Kitchen oven? What was that?” McBain said after solving the puzzle. “Who calls it a ‘kitchen oven’?”
Also, Sajak didn’t seem to appreciate this, responding with faux exasperation, “You won! Don’t argue, Darin! You got the puzzle! Ungrateful players, I’ve had it!” before quickly adding, “No, I’m just teasing.” He continued, laughing, “I finally snapped.”
Later on in the episode, Sajak apologized for the outburst, telling McBain, whose mother was a three-day champion on Wheel in 1982, “I’m sorry I yelled at you, Darin. I just don’t remember your mother giving us trouble like you did.”

Additionally, Sajak has expressed his own opinion about presidential election results and how votes are counted.
Sajak considers himself both a conservative and Republican, according to Vice. He’s donated to affiliated causes in the past.
But the game show host doesn’t appear to be a supporter of Donald Trump as president. According to Pop Culture, Sajak purchased a pen used in Trump’s impeachment.
Sajak, who was born in Chicago, began his career as an English-language announcer for a Spanish-language radio station in Chicago. He served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam as a DJ for Armed Forces Radio from 1968 to 1972.
He worked as a DJ in Kentucky, then as a weatherman in Nashville and Los Angeles before being picked by Merv Griffin to host Wheel of Fortune.
