    I started watching wheel of fortune about two years ago, so obviously I'm not a hard core fan, but apparently Pat used to land on Bankrupts and Lose-A-Turns fairly frequently in the past. As soon as I started watching, he never did this, not once. I'm beginning to suspect that Pat's final spin is fixed. I've looked at the wheel during the final spin, and what it looks like Pat's going to land on and what he does land on seem very far away from each other on the wheel. What do you think is going on?

    Could be that it is fixed. Not only is it rather embarrassing for the host to land on a Bankruptcy/Lose-A-Turn slot but it also eats up air time when they have to spin again so I wouldn't really be surprised if it is fixed.

    I recall several instances where he has had to spin it 3 times before they get a money space, and one of those instances he landed on the $5,000 space. That was quite cool to watch, and I must say that I miss the Wheel of Fortune from the '90s when it was so much fun. Now they just do 3 puzzles a show and it's pretty much over.

    They probably just cut it out when it happens.

    Are the shows taped live or are they played later? It could be that they cut it out if it eats too much air time.
