LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: ‘Wheel of Fortune’ host Pat Sajak is quite popular for his playful banter with contestants on the show. He is occasionally seen teasing the show’s contestants, but all the playful jab is accompanied by a smile on his face. On Tuesday’s fan-favorite-themed episode, May 9, Pat Sajak again mocks a returning contestant, Emil De Leon, over his mind-blowing puzzle-solving skills.

ABC's ‘Wheel of Fortune’ contestant Emil is famous for his nearly-impossible bonus puzzle-solving skills with only two letters revealed. In 2014, he shocked everyone when he correctly guessed the answer to the bonus puzzle, which consisted of 12 letters with only 2 letters disclosed. The host Pat Sajak called it one of the most amazing solves he had ever seen on the show. His clip of solving the puzzle went viral online in seconds, and he left with a whopping $45,000.

'He's starting to get on my nerves'

On the last aired episode of ‘Wheel of Fortune,’ contestant Emil moves to the last game round after beating fellow fan-favorite competitors John and Melinda. Pat informs him about placing a $1,000,000 cash prize card on the legendary wheel that Emil would have to spin in the bonus round. After that, Pat accompanies him to the wheel to spin after he chooses his last puzzle category Phrase. If the wheel had stopped on a $1,000,000 wedge, Emil would have successfully passed the last round, winning millions of dollars. However, the wheel stopped on the wedge containing the letters provided by the show for the previous puzzle.

The standard letters were R, S, T, L, N, and E. Among this, Emil had to choose three consonants and a vowel. He chooses consonants B, H, D, and vowel I.


After Vanna White, Pat’s co-host puts all the letters on the board, Emil instantly gets the correct answer. But before that, Pat mentioned that the puzzle “looked difficult” to him. Unbelievably, it took less than three seconds for Emil to solve the phrase, although Pat gave him 10 seconds to complete it. As the audience applauded him for his excellent skills, Pat shook his head in disbelief, raising his hand to calm the audience.

Then, Pat shared how he felt about Emil’s greatest moment, addressing, “He’s starting to get on my nerves” for having an outstanding winning streak. Emil won $60,500 and a new car.


Pat Sajak's warning to Christian Dixie

On the fan-favorite week of ‘Wheel of Fortune,’ Pat has been extremely playful with the returning contestants on the show. In one of the episodes, he warned a returning contestant, Christian Dixie, for doing something which is not acceptable under the rules of the show anymore. After beating other favorite contestants, Christian moved to the bonus round, where he had to spin the famous bonus wheel. When the wheel stopped, he grabbed the card himself and handed it over to Pat instead of waiting for Pat to reach it. Pat took a moment to share and warn him “not to do it again” if he ever returns to the show again. In response, Christian joked, saying, “If he did, he’d take up his spot as a host on the show”. Christian ended up taking home over $64k and a new car.
