Dailies | ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Host Pat Sajak Walks Off Set, Flips Out After Contestants’ Horseplay (Video)

Players’ odd equine fixation causes game-show host to lose it

Was Pat Sajak just horsing around on Monday’s episode of “Wheel of Fortune,” or was he genuinely peeved at the game‘s contestants?

Your guess is as good as ours, but it sure made for entertaining television.

“Wheel of Fortune” host Sajak had a minor meltdown on his game show after enduring consecutive puzzle-guessing fails on the part of his contestants.

The magic moment came as the contestants attempted to solve a puzzle¬† with the category “What Are You Doing?”

As it turns out, what the contestants were doing were getting under Sajak’s skin.

With just a lone “N” revealed on the board, one contestant guessed, “Riding a Brown Horse” — a fine fit for the number of letters in the puzzle, but unfortunately a completely random phrase and thus an unlikely solution to the puzzle.

The next contestant correctly guessed that a “G” was on the board, but continued the fail with the guess, “Riding a White Horse.”

The barrage of equine guesswork prompted Sajak to briefly walk off of the set. Upon his return, the game show host, with a level of exasperation unbecoming of a man wearing a Hawaiian shirt, blurted out, “Who said anything about a horse?”

Watch Sajak’s spur-of-the-moment mini-meltdown below.
