The category is: Don’t mess with Pat Sajak.
An irate Sajak reportedly confronted contestant Michael Colen earlier this month during the show’s commercial break — after the “Wheel of Fortune” host began to feel upstaged.
“But it was stern,” Colen added. “There was a stern drop of sternness to it.”
“It was two alphas going at it,” Colen added. “I’m an acquired taste. And … I’ve been putting out music for 30 years, so I have to say I’m an acquired taste.”
Colen noted that it took Sajak “a quick minute to get used to” him during the episode.
“I had to find out where the line was. This is like a lifetime dream. I was screaming, ‘Get me on this show, man,’ for like 30 years,” the rapper, who goes by the name of First Degree The D.E., added. “So, I had to find out where the line was compared, and Pat just drew it for me.”
The Post reached out to Colen and Sajak for comment.
Colen appeared to delight the studio audience from the start — especially when he began dabbing after solving a puzzle.
“You would do a backflip,” Sajak, 77, commented, with Colen responding that he would “if I wasn’t so old.”
The contestant continued to hype up the crowd when he spun the wheel and exclaimed: “All right wheel, let’s have a relationship!”
The contestant later met his downfall, however, during the show’s bonus round when he failed to solve the puzzle in time.
“I’ll give you a hint. It’s something you didn’t do,” Sajak sneered.
After witnessing Colen groan at the answer “Pick Wisely,” Sajak commented that he was “sorry” but he “had to go for it.”
This is not the first time Sajak got seemingly peeved with a contestant.
In May, the outgoing host asked a contestant “why are you bothering” after they failed to guess the right answer three times.
Sajak also bluntly told a 22-year-old fan favorite to “don’t ever do that again” after the contestant handed him the bonus round clue.
This season marks the end of Sajak’s tenure on “Wheel” as the host announced in June that he will be retiring. He was subsequently replaced by Ryan Seacrest.
