Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak admits the bizarre new riddle is “silly” as fans slam the reference to his “nonexistent word”.

PAT Sajak has admitted that a Wheel of Fortune puzzle on Tuesday’s episode wasn’t her best moment.

Contestants were asked to solve for “pasta and strudel” – fans agreed after he confessed it was “silly”.

The Wheel of Fortune episode was won by Raul, who won the single player bonus round and walked away with a nice $59.9k.

However, it was Luci who had previously solved the particularly strange riddle.

The category was “Rhyme Time” and after a few letters appeared on the board she seemed unsure as she called to guess.

“Pasta and strudel?” Luci asked confused about her own solution.

Pat, 76, believed the nominee was correct but had to say: “What a silly thing to have to ask about it on national TV.”

He reasoned: “But you know what? It rhymes!”


A fan accused Twitter: “Strudel is not a word.”

Another wrote: “Well I’m here now having a pop tart and we’re just watching Wheel of Fortune lol.”

Last week, Young-Mei went into the finals with the highest score of $22,000, losing to a car over a puzzle that fans deemed “unfair.”

Yung-Mei immediately looked confused as to what the third word “Ding” might be, but she wisely chose a “P” plus a “C,” “B” and an “A” and bowed her head in confusion.

Yung-Mei didn’t have many guesses when the 10-second timer ran out.

After “A Peculiar Quirk” showed up, she simply exclaimed, “Oh jeez.”

The contestant threw up her hands in frustration as Pat said: “It was a quirk, quirk.”

A pin was heard in Stage 11’s studios as the player added, “Huh.”

Pat opened up the winning card and revealed, “You could have won the MA – sorry the VW” as he held it upside down, which was funny at least.

Yung-Mei solemnly replied, “That’s great, thank you,” and shook his hand


Fans just didn’t buy this one and felt it was an overstatement to start the last word of the one-person special with a “Q”.

Many also claimed that “A Peculiar Quirk” didn’t really qualify as a “thing” since it wasn’t an object.

One wrote on Twitter: “Really!!! A strange quirk!!! This is ridiculous what do you have over budget or something no one would get in their life I’ve been looking at for 35 years and getting 75% that’s just BS.”

Two weeks ago, after three contestants similarly won three bonus puzzles in a row, Thursday’s winner was asked to guess something ridiculous as well – “Frothy Milk”.

Keith looked absolutely furious and one angry viewer accused there was a pattern on the board.

“Keith was jived, BS. Foamed Milk?? REALLY. We know you spent a lot of money this week – that’s a load of shit, come on, you robbed the guy. Keith, you did great.”

Meanwhile, the puzzles before the special bonus round on the show are often a stretch lately too.

Last month, the long-running show challenged contestants to solve a holiday puzzle called “Buttery Chestnuts,” which fans dubbed weird and “PG13.”

The writers also presented Gilmore Girls Gone Wild, which mixed a sane series with an adult series, and people didn’t like it.

And they’ve also asked poor Vanna White, 65, to stand by and present “Warm Wet and Wild” this season too.
