Please pay attention to all of the COOL PEOPLE out there who stan Wheel of Fortune due to the fact that you grew up with it on in the background for no apparent reason? So, there’s been a new record set! breaking! update!
A historic win occurred on the long-running game show last night when contestant Bree Yokouchi became the third player this week to win more than $100,000 during the bonus round, marking the first time this has happened.
And Pat Sajak was so taken aback that he abruptly exited the stage, saying, “I’m outta here.” “That’s it, I’m done with it.”
During a FaceTime conversation with his daughter Maggie Sajak, Pat also spiralled out of control.
“I’m at a loss for words when it comes to describing my reaction.” I’m not sure if I’m stunned or surprised. “It’s all a waste of time.”
Also, just so you know, Pat couldn’t keep his excitement down after just two $100k+ wins in a row, claiming at the time that “it’s never happened.”
And, wouldn’t you know it, I’ve just sold out of all of my confetti supplies… Isn’t it true that there’s always something new to discover around here? “Wow, that is incredible.”
If he loses his cool after three consecutive victories, imagine the downward spiral into which he will descend if it happens a fourth time.

That Pat Sajak is perplexed by the most recent Wheel of Fortune victories would be an understatement of the situation.
It all started on Monday night when Lisa Kramer, one of the contestants, won the $100,000 bonus round.
The only other person to win the coveted prize in the current season 39, which began in September, was her, and she unwittingly started a historic streak in the process.
On Tuesday, Mark Baer, a fellow competitor, was overjoyed when he solved his puzzle — despite the fact that Pat revealed his prize with a shake of his head. “Wait a minute, that’s never happened before,” he said before revealing that Mark had just won the second consecutive $100,000 jackpot round.
If that wasn’t enough of a shocker, contestant Bree Yokouchi continued her lucky streak on Wednesday by earning herself a spot in the third consecutive $100,000 bonus round. Pat, on the other hand, was more surprised than excited, in contrast to the previous nights.
After taking a moment to gather himself, he didn’t even bother to try to explain how the show managed to have three $100,000 bonus rounds in a single week of competition.
Instead, Pat did the only thing that came to mind: he threw the envelope to the ground, raised his hands, and bolted from the stage. “I’m getting out of here.” “I’m getting out of here,” he said as he walked out the door. “That’s all there is to it. I’ve had enough. “I’m getting out of here.”
Bree was left alone on the stage to celebrate, and she managed to keep her tears back when Wheel of Fortune cohost Vanna White congratulated her on her achievement.
Following a brief commercial break, Pat returned to the stage and expressed his admiration for Bree’s ability to solve the “daunting” puzzle, not only for her extraordinary win, but also for her perseverance in the face of adversity.
Fans of “Wheel of Fortune” who believe the show is “fixed” are slammed by Pat Sajak.
This week’s Wheel of Fortune contestants have been so successful that some viewers are beginning to suspect that something is going on behind the scenes.
The top prize of $100,000 has been won by the same contestant for three episodes in a row during the bonus round on the show.
After 39 seasons of the show, a streak like this had never occurred before, prompting some viewers to wonder if the producers were orchestrating the event for their own amusement.
After only two days in a row of $100,000 winners, Pat Sajak, the show’s host, took to Twitter to dismiss any conspiracy theories. Continue reading to see the host’s response, as well as more information on the record-breaking winnings.
Lisa Kramer made it to the bonus round on Monday’s episode, solved the puzzle, and discovered that she had been randomly selected to receive the $100,000 prize card out of the 24 cards available.
When contestant Mark Baer appeared on Tuesday’s episode, the same thing happened to him. Even that was enough to surprise Sajak, make headlines for the show, and get people talking about a possible conspiracy.
During the show’s confetti-showing sequence, Sajak joked, “Wouldn’t ya know it, I just sold out of all my confetti stock.” “Well, even after nearly 40 years, there are new things happening around here,” says the author. He went on to say, “We’ll see you at the next event. Let’s go for a total of three.”
The Wheel of Fortune’s social correspondent, Maggie Sajak, appeared in a video with her father, who explained the odds of winning the $100,000 prize: “There are 24 [spaces], which means you have a 4 percent chance of landing on the $100,000, a little over 4 percent, and of course the odds are even greater because you have to solve a puzzle.”
When contestant Bree Yokouchi won the $100,000 prize on Wednesday, Sajak’s “let’s go for three” wish became a reality when she became the third winner of the $100,000 prize. “Who’s going to make the arrangements for my trip to Vegas?” When Sajak opened the prize card and saw the $100,000 cash prize, he exclaimed, “Wow!” He then walked off stage with a chuckle. “That’s all there is to it. I’m getting out of here, “he explained.
