Contestant’s quip about ‘loveless marriage to old battle-axe’ gets hearty reaction from Sajak

“Wheel of Fortune” contestant Blair Davis went viral after giving an epic introduction to himself and his life on the show.

Host Pat Sajak introduced Davis as the owner of a small trucking business in San Diego and then Davis was given the time to tell the world a little bit more about himself. Spoiler: He did not disappoint.

“I’ve been trapped in a loveless marriage for the last 12 years to an old battle-ax named Kim,” Davis said with good humor.

“She cursed my life with three stepchildren named Star, RJ, and Ryan and I have one rotten grandson,” he added.

The lines earned laughter from the audience and a hearty “yay!” from Sajak.

“No wonder you came here, you just wanted to get away from everybody,” Sajak eventually responded.

The host, a bit of a comedian himself through his Twitter account, noticed Davis’ humorous side and said, “I know you’re being facetious.”

“Absolutely,” Davis said. “I love them like nobody’s business.”

Davis, who sports a beard that looks like it’s straight from television’s “Vikings,” also said his facial hair has grown so long because his grandson is fond of it.

“I started growing the beard a couple of years back and every time I threaten to shave it off, [my grandson] gives me a really hard time. He’s grown used to it,” he said.

Davis’ introduction instantly went viral with people on social media applauding him for his quick wit and surprising response to simply being asked to tell the crowd a little about himself.

It’s no surprise that Sajak could see that Davis was a bit of a comedian since the “Wheel of Fortune” host so often uses satire on his Twitter account. He’s done everything from taking down over-political celebrities to eviscerating political correctness on modern college campuses.

Though “Wheel of Fortune” isn’t often going viral on social media, it’s been a ratings winner for decades. The series has aired over 7000 episodes and Sajak was recently awarded the Guinness World Record for “Longest Career as a Game Show Host of the Same Show.” He has hosted “Wheel of Fortune” for 38 years.
