Fans of the beloved game show “Wheel Of Fortune” are expressing worries for host Pat Sajak after he clapped back at a contestant for the third time in under ten days.
In the episode that aired on Thursday night, Sajak lost it when a contestant interrupted him to make her next move when he was in the middle of a promotion for Dick’s Sporting Goods.
“Never, never interrupt a plug,” Sajak, 74, snapped at the contestant, who meekly replied, “I apologize.”
“You can do anything else but don’t interrupt. I’m sorry, what’d you want to do?” Sajack added with a laugh.

Social media immediately exploded with users expressing concerns for Sajak and pointing out that he has been unusually feisty in recent episodes.
“Is @patsajak okay? He’s been kinda testy lately,” one fan asked, with another adding, “My goodness @patsajak, please be kinder to your contestants. What has happened to you? yikes @WheelofFortune #WheelOfFortune.”
“@patsajak has been real feisty lately. He just yelled at a contestant for interrupting his plug for @DICKS,” a third viewer said said. A fourth viewer chimed in to add, “Pat Sajak makes #WheelOfFortune completely unbearable to watch. Stop being such a d–k.”
“@patsajak has turned into an angry uncle this year,” someone else quipped.
Fox News reported that this came a week after Sajak blasted a contestant as “ungrateful” during a tense moment on the show. After his latest feisty moment last night, some fans pointed out that Sajak has hosted this game show alongside Vanna White for nearly forty years, and he may be tired of it.
“How does the network not recognize that [Sajak] is over his job? He clearly hates the monotony of his job over the last 30+ years. #abc #WheelOfFortune #patsajak” one fan commented, with another ominously warning, “I’m telling everyone, Pat Sajak is going to snap one day #WheelOfFortune #WOF.”
Others, however, defended Sajak.
“Are you serious!? @patsajak had to tell a contestant NOT to interrupt him! Some people are so pretentious & feel rules don’t apply to them; just another ‘Karen,'” one person said. Another person reacted by saying, “Pat Sajak is just f–king done with people these days and I love it. #WheelOfFortune.”
