During the episode, Fred revealed that he was a drama teacher, bar trivia host, and professional wrestler. After Fred won several rounds, Sajak made some snarky comments about him and called him a “brute.” When Fred made it to the bonus round and guessed the puzzle in three attempts for the “Phrase” category, Sajak attempted to bend his arm behind his back and grabbed his face with the other arm while putting him in somewhat of a headlock.It is unclear whether this incident was staged or not.
However, some fans were quick to criticize Sajak’s behavior on social media .
In another incident earlier in 2022 ,Sajak scolded a contestant who nearly touched the million-dollar wedge before spinning again. He later defended contestants from online ridicule after they were mocked for their mistakes on the show.It is important to note that physical altercations are never acceptable and should not be condoned. It is also important to remember that game shows are meant to be entertaining and should not be taken too seriously.
