Pat Sajak bungles response to ‘Wheel of Fortune’ contestant’s strange hobby


Pat Sajak didn’t have the GOAT response to a “Wheel of Fortune” contestant who revealed her lucrative hobby on Monday’s episode of the sport show.

The 76-year-old host was attending to know the contestants when he arrived at a girl named Laura, whose fun fact was that she makes nearly $92,000 milking her three goats to make her own soap.

“You milk goats? And also you make — wait,” Sajak asked, referring back to his cue cards. “Milk — goat milk soup? Not soup, soap!”

“Goat milk soap,” Laura assured him. “It’s imagined to be really good on your skin. It’s really moisturizing. We’ve got three goats we milk every night.”

Sajak, who has hosted the show for 41 years, couldn’t muster up any form of follow-up query or snarky response, so he just moved together with, “Well, good.”

It’s the newest awkward moment that adds to the growing list of what fans are calling his odd on-air behavior. In October, Sajak took a jab at a contestant who failed to unravel “one in all the simplest final puzzles ever.” He was slammed on social media for a “#MeToo” remark toward letter-turner Vanna White, 65, in April.

Earlier, in March, Sajak was deemed “cold-blooded” toward a contestant during their introduction interview, during which the player revealed that he had his big toe chopped off.

All this has fans suspecting that Sajak is more focused on his retirement than “Wheel of Fortune” itself. He told “Entertainment Tonight” in September that “the tip is near” for his final spin.

“We’re getting near the tip. It’s been a protracted [time]. We’re not gonna do that for an additional 40 years,” he explained.

White also addressed the thought of Sajak leaving the show in an interview with People.

“I don’t even wish to take into consideration that. I mean, we’re a team,” she said. “That’s depressing. I don’t even wish to give it some thought.

“I can’t imagine. Everybody relates ‘Wheel of Fortune’ to Pat and Vanna,” White added. “We’re like Ken and Barbie, you recognize? We’ve been in everybody’s homes for 40 years, so it could be weird having any individual else turn my letters.”

It’s unclear whether Sajak and White would retire together.

The Post has reached out to reps for White for comment.
