Pat Sajak has raised eyebrows yet again with his strange comments. During the Tuesday, November 29, episode of Wheel of Fortune, the longtime host asked letter turner Vanna White a seemingly shady question about her outfit live on-air.

"Does that dress run by battery or do you plug it in?" Sajak asked his cohost, who was wearing a glittering silver dress, perfect for the holidays.

White, who seemed extremely uncomfortable by the comment, nervously laughed before asking the crowd, "You would think, huh? Yup!"

"I know it's very — very," the father-of-two said before the South Carolina native added, "Sparkly."

Sajak then tried to clean up his odd shade towards White. "Sparkly yes, it's very nice. You know we get a little jaded with all the money we give away, that's a lot of dough!" he oddly continued.

This is not the first time the veteran television personality came under fire for his quips about his right-hand woman. As OK! previously reported, Sajak recently joked about getting some ink of White on his chest.

"I was gonna have a little tattoo of Vanna put on my chest, but I didn't," Sajak told tattoo enthusiast Joel Madden during a recent episode of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune. "I was afraid it would take away from my nipple ring."

Sajak's strange behavior has been an issue behind the scenes of the beloved game show. "The network's brass and top-level producers have come down hard on him and read him the riot act," an insider spilled.

"Pat has put his foot in it one too many times and offended people with his off-color humor and temperamental behavior. Now now one, with the possible exception of his partner Vanna White thinks he's good for the show," the source continued. "They've made things very uncomfortable for Pat. Hardly anyone talks to him between takes. Makeup and wardrobe people do their jobs and then scram."

The Chicago native's contract runs until 2025, however, Sajak may be looking to make his exit as soon as possible. "The pressure's getting too much for Pat. If and when he quits, it'll be to save face. But everyone will know he was shown the exit door," the insider dished.
