'Wheel Of Fortune' Contestant Throws His Whole Family Under The Bus With Iconic Introduction

Pat, I'd like to solve the puzzle.

"The best introduction ever."


Monday's episode of Wheel of Fortune had something new to bring to the table. When Pat Sajak introduced contestant Blair Davis, most were expecting some line about his lovely wife and great kids.

What we got was, well, definitely not that.

Blair Jokes About His Family (and Beard) | Wheel of Fortune www.youtube.com

Blair Davis was asked about his life by Sajak, as is custom on the show. Davis revealed he is the owner of a small trucking company in San Diego, and that he's been in a loveless marriage for 12 years.

...That last bit doesn't sound right. Let me check on that.

Davis said exactly:

"I have been trapped in a loveless marriage for the last twelve years to an old battle-ax named Kim. She cursed my life with three stepchildren... and I have one rotten grandson."

I mean, there's honesty, and then there's honesty on a television show watched by millions.




Now before I go any further, I feel it's important to tell you Blair was obviously joking.

While many commenters online didn't catch on, Blair's knowing smile before he's asked the question, and Pat Sajak's cheer should have been clues.

Oh, there's also this exchange between Sajak and Blair literally seconds later.

"I know you're being facetious."
"Absolutely! I love them like nobody's business!"

Please remember to watch full videos and read the whole articles before commenting on something.

What Blair was doing, for any non-Wheel of Fortune fans out there, is making fun of this normal exchange. When asked about their families, most contestants give what feel like stock answers.

Sure, it's nice to hear about someone's "lovely wife" and their "great kids" but after hearing those exact words hundreds of times for weeks on end from different people, it begins to feel disingenuous.

Which is why we stan Blair and his battle-ax of a wife, Kim.




The jokes didn't end there, however.

Blair was then asked by Sajak about his long, ZZ Top beard.

He apparently keeps it because of his "rotten" grandson.

"I started growin' the beard a couple of years back and every time I threaten to shave it off, he gives me a really hard time."

Sajak gave a zinger right back saying:

"Don't let it get tangled up in the wheel, that's all we ask."

Everything about Blair's introduction made for an entertaining episode.




Blair did not end up winning the game this week, which was devastating for his newfound fans. A few even called for him to be given another chance.

However, I think we're all pretty happy someone had the courage to go on stage and make a mockery of the introductions, because really, it can get old.
