Why This 'Wheel of Fortune' Contestant Got Awkward Laughs Introducing Himself
When asked to tell the audience about himself, the man revealed that he's "trapped in a loveless marriage."
In more than than 6,000 episodes "Wheel of Fortune," never has a contestant said something as shocking as this man did Monday night.
Host Pat Sajak asked a contestant named Blair Davis to say something about himself and the answer was rather shocking.
"I've been trapped in a loveless marriage for the last 12 years to an old battle ax named Kim," he said. "She cursed my life with three stepchildren ... and I have one rotten grandson."
Some in the audience giggled and others were left in shock, including Sajak, who sarcastically replied “yay” to Blair’s comment, adding, "I know you are being facetious."
Davis then clarified that he was just joking, adding, “I love 'em like nobody's business."
Davis spoke to Inside Edition at his home in San Diego to explain himself.
"We have been watching the show for so long and people typically have the template of how they introduce their loved ones and I thought, ‘I didn’t want to do that,'" he said. "It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I wanted to give them a once-in-a-lifetime introduction."
He said his family was in on the joke.
He also said of his "rotten" grandson, "He is the sweetest guy in the world, and he and I are best buddies."
