Co-host Vanna White then revealed the letters for the puzzle: “His mind is wandering.”

Fred won the bonus round, resulting in Sajak announcing he was taking home a whopping $75,800, leaving Fred emotional.

Just after Fred embraced his father, who was waiting on the sidelines, Sajak suddenly ran over and tackled him.

The long-running host attempted to bend his arm behind his back as he grabbed his face with this other arm.

By the end of the bizarre scuffle, Sajak had Fred in a headlock.
