Pat Sajak, the host of the popular game show “Wheel of Fortune” jokingly stormed off the set after a third contestant in a row won a massive $100,000 in the bonus round.
Noting the show had given away a lot of money in the last two episodes (to say nothing of their confetti consumption) Sajak joked that the contestants that night would be playing for “luncheon meats.”
“Monday we gave away $100,000 in the bonus round. Yesterday we gave away $100,000 in the bonus round. So because of budgetary considerations, rather than cash, we’re playing for luncheon meats tonight,” he joked.
“After the last two nights, we had to send out for an emergency shipment from Confetti-R-Us,” Sajak added.
But there was no break to the streak, as contestant Bree Yokouchi managed to guess her way into a win, and copped herself $100,000, which sent Sajak over the edge.

“That’s it, I’m through!” he shouted through a snowstorm of confetti. “$121,000, I’m outta here!”
Twitter users reacted to the massive win, and some even believe this was a staged event:
I hate it but I had the same thought. It’s almost like rather than spending that money on advertising, they figured they would “give it away” and take the free press it generates. It’s so highly unlikely to happen. Let’s see if number 4 pops up tonight. 🙄

But that is just landing on it. Still have to solve the puzzle. That’s maybe 50/50?

Due to unprecedented costs, buying a 15 second commercial during Wheel of Fortune now costs more than 30 seconds during the Super Bowl. Lol.

Is every card in the wheel $100K?!?!

Apparently ONE 100k on the board
