Fans claim that Pat Sajak robbed a contestant on a recent episode of Wheel of Fortune, and he has since found himself in hot water once more. As you may recall, Sajak was the target of online ire just last month after it was claimed that a contestant had allegedly been “robbed” of $100,000.
Contestant Alexa Hoekstra of Texas Woman’s University advanced to the bonus round on that occasion—the April 6 episode. “__ST _IN_ING IT” appeared on the board under the category “What Are You Doing?” as a result of her letter selection. Alexa missed out on the $100,000 prize by not answering “JUST WINGING IT,” even though some Wheel fans maintain that she did.

During the game, players must decipher the assembled letters to determine the phrase. Neetu Varshney appeared to have narrowly missed getting the right answer. She was actually so close to getting it right that viewers thought host Pat Sajak was unfair to her by not giving her the benefit of the doubt. Varshney’s best guess was “In a moment’s notice” as the phrase they were looking for. Nevertheless, Sajak rejected her.

The fact that Varshney’s follow competitor Jeremy Manos went on to correctly solve the puzzle and win $2,000 made matters worse for Varshney. While Sajak was only following the letter of the law, it appears that many viewers believed Varshney had been treated unfairly. One Twitter user claimed: “@WheelofFortune @patsajak NEETU got robbed on that puzzle solve.”. Neetu absolutely said, “At a moment’s notice,” so she deserved the puzzle win at Wheel of Fortune. “, added another.
Another chimed in, saying, “Neetu got screwed!! Clean your ears, Pat!! WheelOfFortune @WheelofFortune.
Fourth: “Last night’s episode of @WheelofFortune and @patsajak was a complete failure.
I’m a huge fan of both of them. Contestant Neetu was incorrectly called on two guesses, and I’m confident that her accent was to blame. I’m simply anticipating her invitation to return. “.
