"Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak "finally snapped" at a contestant during Wednesday night's episode.

Contestant Darin McBain solved a puzzle for things that begin with the word "kitchen," pointing out correctly: "Cabinet, oven, towels, sink."

However, he then took things a step further by questioning: "Kitchen oven? What was that?"

"Yeah, where else would you keep an oven?" Sajak quipped, as McBain asked: "For sure in the kitchen, but who calls it a 'kitchen oven?'"

Sajak responded, "You won! Don't argue, Darin! You got the puzzle! Ungrateful players, I've had it!"

The host added, "No, I'm just teasing. I finally snapped!"

McBain finished in second place, taking home $15,350 and an apology from Sajak.

“I'm sorry I yelled at you,” Sajak told McBain. “It’s just — I don't remember your mother giving us trouble like you did," he said of McBain's mom previously being on the show.
