The game show host Pat Sajak revealed a mischievous trick that he plays on his wife Lesly Brown every year on her birthday, much to the disapproval of his co-host Vanna White.
At the end of the Wheel of Fortune show last Friday, Sajak spilled the beans that he fakes a heart attack every year when Brown blows out the candles on her birthday cake.
As Sajak explained his prank on Suday’s show, he chuckled, “I do this… this thing I do every one of Lesly’s birthdays and she absolutely hates it. We put a cake in front of her, she closes her eyes, she makes a wish, and when she blows out the candle, I clutch my heart and fall to the ground. She never finds that amusing, I don’t understand.”
White was visibly uncomfortable as Sajak asked, “Don’t you find that funny?” to which she responded with a stern “No.” It was clear that the prank wasn’t to everyone’s liking, and Sajak ended the show with a lackluster “OK” before the credits rolled.
Many viewers and fans of the show took to social media to express their opinions on Sajak’s prank, with some finding it amusing and others finding it insensitive and inappropriate.
