What Pat Sajak Did Live On The Air Dropped Everyone’s Jaws!

Pat Sajak just did something live on the air that made everyone’s jaw drop completely. He is really catching flak for this, to say the least.

If there is one constant in life, it would be that wheel of life. And as it turns out, there are some days where people love you, and there are some days where people do not.

That is absolutely true at the moment for “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak, who has put off some of his fans when he gave a less-than-flattering reaction to the story of one of his contestants.

It was on Wednesday’s episode of the long-running game show that Sajak, 75, glanced down at one of his cards regarding contestant Scott Ingwersen and noted that Ingwersen had told the interviewers that he had once chopped off a big toe, as noted by the New York Post.

Needless to say, Sajak wasn’t thrilled about the story.

“Why am I mentioning this?” Sajak said. “It’s on your card. You had your big toe chopped off. Why are you telling this?”

Ingwersen, 47, was telling the tale of a childish mishap.

“It’s important to know that when I was 12 years old, I was riding a 10-speed bike with flip-flops, and I fell and completely cut off the top of my toe,” Ingwersen said.

“The next car that came by were two paramedics that were on their way to their job, and they said, ‘It’s just a laceration.’ But I didn’t know what that was, so it freaked me out even more. And my toe is reattached, and I just wanna say ‘thank you’ to them 30 years later,” he said.

Of course, the audience applauded.

Sajak, on the other hand, was not so impressed.

“That may have been the most pointless story ever told. And you told it, Scott. Congratulations to you,” he said.




This was definitely a rare moment where Sajak lost his poise and got flustered. Was he possibly having a bad day? Indeed, a better way to go about it would be to say something to the effect of, “Yes, we all need to be thankful for those first responders…” and we definitely should.
