Host Pat Sajak got riled up on Wheel of Fortune Wednesday night, after a contestant questioned one of the puzzle answers. Contestant Darin McBain, whose mother was a three-day champion on the show in 1982, correctly answered a crossword puzzle but challenged the validity of his answer.
The puzzle was for things that begin with the word “kitchen.” McBain correctly guessed, “Cabinet, towels, oven, sink.” After winning the puzzle, McBain asked about one of the answers.
“Kitchen oven?” asked McBain. “What was that? Who calls it a ‘kitchen oven’?”
Many fans agreed with McBain, and several even took to social media to voice their support.
I agree...who calls it a Kitchen Oven. #WheelOfFortune

Sajak didn’t agree with either McBain or the fans apparently, because he started yelling at the contestant.
“Don't!” Sajak exclaimed. “You won! Don't argue, Darin! ... You got the puzzle. Ungrateful players! I've had it!”
“Ungrateful contestants!” Pat’s not having it tonight. 😂😂😂 #WheelOfFortune

Sajak was obviously only teasing, but he did admit, “I finally snapped.”
McBain barely missed out on playing for the bonus round puzzle as he finished in second place. But at least he ended up taking home $15,350 and an apology from Sajak.
“I'm sorry I yelled at you,” said Sajak. “It’s just — I don't remember your mother giving us trouble like you did.”
