Kevin Randall of Atlanta, Georgia was hoping to have a fun night on his first Wheel of Fortune appearance. Instead, disaster struck as Kevin’s first spin landed on “Trip to Wuhan.”
“He has to go,” Pat Sajak informed after the show. “The wheel has spoken and its wishes are to be honored. What, you think this is a game?!” he snapped.
Randall, who suffers from asthma, immediately offered to skip the trip allowing the producers to save on airfare and hotel costs.
“Are you kidding me? The full Wuhan package is now only $18,” a producer replied. “You’re going!”
Kevin Randall was escorted to LAX by armed guards and was allowed to briefly kiss his wife and children goodbye before sorrowfully boarding his flight.
Update: Kevin died.
