Game show fans were taken aback after Sajak sent out a strange tweet on Friday, June 3, that read, "You know what I think? Of course not. And why should you care what I think? I’m a TV game show host. Now if I were a talk show host or a famous actor, that would be a different story. Then my opinion would carry a lot of weight."

During one episode, contestant Scott Ingwersen recalled a horrifying tale about how his big toe was cut off. After Ingwersen finished his story, the game show star seemed to not care at all.

"That may have been the most pointless story ever told. And you told it, Scott," Sajak rudely told the contestant, sarcastically adding: "Congratulations to you."

In April, while professional opera singer Ashley Fabian made an appearance on the show, the television host asked White, "Are you an opera buff at all?"

The hostess then replied, "I’m not a buff, but I like opera," leading Sajak to ask, "Have you ever watched opera in the buff? I’m just curious." Despite the uncomfortable comments, she smiled and simply replied, "No."

Sajak had a major slip up when he accidentally gave away an answer in the game. The board read “_ _ _TE _RAN_L_” when Sajak said, “Well, I’d rather be standing here than there, quite frankly.” However, the phrase “quite frankly” was the answer contestant Jeffrey needed to bring home the big prize.

White was sure to call the show host out, telling him, “Did you hear what you said?” Sajak noted, “I did, right after I said it. I wonder how many people at home caught it. It goes to show you that people are concentrating and they're not paying any attention to me.”

The media personality confused viewers back in 2020 when he scolded contestant Darin McBain, who had to guess four expressions that began with the word "kitchen," correctly answering: "Cabinet, towels, oven, sink."

"Kitchen oven? What was that?" McBain joked after getting the correct answer. "Who calls it a 'kitchen oven?'" Sajak then weirdly responded, "You won! Don't argue, Darin! You got the puzzle! Ungrateful players, I've had it!"
