Wheel Of Fortune / YouTube
Well folks, if you missed Tuesday’s episode of Wheel of Fortune, you missed one heck of a show. One of the contestants, Fred, revealed that he’s not just a drama teacher and bar trivia host, but also a professional wrestler. And let me tell you, he was killing the game.
Despite admitting that he gets paid peanuts for the wrestling, Fred says he does it “for the fun.” And boy, did he have fun on the show. Wheel of Fortune shared his successful puzzle-solving skills on their YouTube channel, during their Hawaiian-themed show.
But it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows for Fred. Host Pat Sajak made some snarky comments after his wins, calling him a “brute” because of how dominating he was at the game.
At one point, Sajak asked the other players if they wanted him to body slam Fred, and they all said “yes!” I mean, who wouldn’t want to see a game show host body slam a contestant? That’s entertainment right there, baby!
Anyway, Fred made it to the bonus round and solved the puzzle in three tries for the “Phrase” category. Co-host Vanna White revealed the letters, which spelled out “His mind is wandering.” And let me tell you, Fred was a sight to see when he won. He flexed his muscles and hugged his dad, all while basking in the glory of his $75,800 win.
That’s when, out of nowhere, Sajak ran over to Fred and grabbed him! Sajak even put Fred in a headlock!
I guess Sajak was feeling left out of the wrestling action. Fans were quick to react to the bizarre moment, with one person saying, “Not only another Perfect Game, but another showdown with Pat vs. another contestant!”
Another fan was more concerned with Sajak’s safety, saying, “Don’t fall Pat.”
Overall, it was a wild ride on Wheel of Fortune this week. And if you’re ever a contestant on the show, watch out for Pat Sajak’s wrestling moves. You never know when he’s going to pounce!
