Wheel of Fortune contestant Angela Evans called out a letter that some seemed to think sounded like a "B", but Sajak called it a "D" - a letter needed to solve the sentence "Drinking from a coconut".

Long-time "Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak is recovering after emergency surgery on Thursday to fix a blocked intestine, CBS News reports.

Pat Sajak is on the mend following an emergency surgery last week, the "Wheel of Fortune" host tweeted on Monday. It's the longest-running syndicated game show in the USA with Sajak holding the Guinness World Records title for having the longest career as a game show host for the same show. The show taped its 7,000th episode in May of past year. It's unclear whether the famous Disney mouse will be filling in for White for the entire two weeks or if Wheel of Fortune will have to find another substitute, but there are plenty of options out there.
