Pat Sajak ‘almost lost it’ after contestant questions ‘Wheel of Fortune’ puzzle: ‘Ungrateful players! I’ve had it!’

38 years after his mother appeared on “Wheel of Fortune,” contestant Darin McBain spun the Wheel Wednesday night. And he did really well, especially on a crossword puzzle for things that start with the word “kitchen.” He correctly guessed, “Cabinet, towels, oven, sink.” However, after winning, McBain questioned one of the puzzle answers.

“Kitchen oven?” asked McBain. “What was that? Who calls it a "kitchen oven?”

Many fans agreed with McBain, with several taking to Twitter to voice their support, but host Pat Sajak was not in agreement. In fact, he blasted McBain for even questioning the puzzle.

“Don't!” Sajak exclaimed. “You won! Don't argue, Darin!...You got the puzzle. Ungrateful players! I've had it!” Sajak was only teasing, but he did admit “I finally snapped.”

At the end of the show he apologized for the earlier outburst, saying, “I'm sorry I yelled at you, Darin. It’s just -- I don't remember your mother giving us trouble like you did.”
