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 game show.
The 76-year-old host was getting to know the contestants when he arrived at a woman 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 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 supposed to be really good for 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 sort of follow-up question or snarky response, so he just moved along with, “Well, good.”
It’s the latest 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 solve “one of the easiest 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 end is near” for his final spin.
“We’re getting near the end. It’s been a long [time]. We’re not gonna do this for another 40 years,” he explained.
White also addressed the idea of Sajak leaving the show in an interview with People.
“I don’t even want to think about that. I mean, we’re a team,” she said. “That’s depressing. I don’t even want to think about it.
“I can’t imagine. Everybody relates ‘Wheel of Fortune’ to Pat and Vanna,” White added. “We’re like Ken and Barbie, you know? We’ve been in everybody’s homes for 40 years, so it would be weird having somebody else turn my letters.”
It is unclear whether Sajak and White would retire together.
The Post has reached out to reps for White for comment.
