Pat Sajak, the often chipper host of “Wheel of Fortune,” jokingly called out a contestant on Wednesday night’s episode, resulting in several stunned viewers reacting at home.

“For sure in the kitchen, but who calls it a ‘kitchen oven?'” Darin furthered.

“You won! Don’t argue, Darin! You got the puzzle! Ungrateful players, I’ve had it!” Sajak responded.

The host, who was laughing, then clarified: “No, I’m just teasing. I finally snapped!”

Fans at home were split on the contestant’s argument.

“Oh my @patsajak almost lost it on this dude #WheelOfFortune,” another reacted.

One viewer sided with Darin, writing on Twitter, “kitchen oven is like saying bathroom toilet #wheeloffortune.”

“I agree…who calls it a Kitchen Oven. #WheelOfFortune,” another wrote.

Responding to a clip of the moment on Twitter, the viewer added: “He wasn’t ‘mean’ or condescending. I watch this every weeknight.”

Another insisted: “He was kidding around. How does this get twisted into Pat losing it???”

Darin’s appearance on the show was unique in that he revealed his mother was a three-night champion back in the 1980s. He ultlimately took home $15,350, according to Yahoo!, as well as an apology from Sajak.

“I’m sorry I yelled at you,” Sajak told him, via the outlet. “It’s just — I don’t remember your mother giving us trouble like you did.”

The syndicated version of “Wheel of Fortune” is currently in its 38th season and is distributed by CBS Television Distribution.
