On November 25th, Wheel of Fortune host, Pat Sajak got a little sassy with a contestant.

It all started when player Darin McBain was asked to name four things that “begin with the word kitchen.” He guessed all four correctly—cabinet, oven, towels, and sink—but pointed out to Sajak that there’s no such thing as a “kitchen oven.” It’s just an oven… right?

Kitchen oven?” McBain said. “What was that? Who calls it a ‘kitchen oven?’”

Sajak replied, “Yeah, where else would you keep an oven?” to which McBain responded, “For sure in the kitchen, but who calls it a ‘kitchen oven?’”

That’s when Sajak’s attitude towards the contestant took a turn and surprised everyone. “Don’t! You won! Don’t argue, Darin! … You got the puzzle. Ungrateful players! I’ve had it!” Sajak squawked, his brow furrowed. Then, likely realizing his volume and passion, he quickly retracted the remarks. “No, I’m just teasing,” the host said. “I finally snapped!” In his nearly 40 years of leading Wheel of Fortune, he’s never come unglued like that.

Pat did play it off well, but you could definitely tell that he was over Darin and his bulls**t.

Many fans of the show agreed with Darin, because who really calls an oven…a ‘kitchen oven’? However, in the end, people most certainly had Pat’s back — because — well — it’s Pat Sajak.
