Wheel of Fortune contestant shows off weird skill
ABC’s long-running game show Wheel of Fortune returned to screens as Pat Sajack continued his countdown to retirement.
During the episode, the host looked visibly shocked as he introduced the contestants and led them to share an interesting fact about themselves.
Hailing from Las Vegas, Jesse Fullen showed off some skills after Pat asked: “Let’s talk about your joints. You are apparently double-jointed to some extent.”
The contestant then pulled up his sleeves and cracked his knuckles to show off and proved it was true as he confirmed: “Yes, I have a rubber pinky, Pat.”
Jesse proceeded to abnormally bend his finger and flick the tip back and forth with his other hand.

As he showed how double-jointed both his hands were, Pat could be heard exclaiming: “Oh my goodness,” while Jesse explained: “I’ve got a crazy human claw.”
Flaunting more tricks, the contestant then pulled open his blazer to show: “I can also roll my stomach,” as he demonstrated it much to the audience’s amusement.
“And my spinning hand, I can put in my mouth but I’ll save it for later.”
Pat was completely mystified as he remarked: “I will never unsee any of this … thanks for sharing with us,” before proceeding to the next panelist.

Despite his bizarre skills, it was Leah Brown from Texas who won the highest total.
However, as she wasn’t able to guess the bonus puzzle, Pat revealed she missed out on a $75,000 prize card.
Fans can expect to see a new face on Wheel of Fortune alongside co-host Vanna White after Pat announced his retirement in June.
After joining the game show in 1981 and co-hosting 41 seasons, the 76-year-old told his social media followers: “My time has come.”
As a result, Ryan Seacrest was confirmed as his successor just two weeks later, and shared his excitement on social media.
Ryan paid tribute with: “I can say, along with the rest of America, that it’s been a privilege and pure joy to watch Pat and Vanna on our television screens for an unprecedented 40 years.”
He also looked forward to working with the legendary co-host and added: “I can’t wait to continue the tradition of spinning the wheel and working alongside the great Vanna White.”
Despite this, there were also reports of negotiations for Vanna a pay increase and rumours of her “disappointment” as she wasn’t offered a chance to take on the role.
