On March 15, #WheelofFortune Twitter started buzzing when a contestant named Chris misread the Eurythmics song lyrics “sweet dreams are made of this.” (He said “these” instead of “this.”) But folks who stuck around watched him make it to the final spin. Although Chris couldn’t solve the last puzzle, “flavorful dumplings,” it started a hilarious conversation between Pat and Vanna about food.
As it turns out, the former pageant queen hadn’t been completely honest with Pat about how she cooks up her version of the dish. “I have a confession to make,” Vanna said. “I don’t make my own dumplings. I use canned biscuits. There you go.”
After hearing this, Pat shook his head, threw up his hands and walked off the stage. “I can’t take this,” he said.
With that, Vanna was left alone (but, of course, the whole scene was all in good fun). The Wheel of Fortune star said a friendly goodbye to viewers before she also walked away from the camera. Wheel of Fortune fans seeing the moment unfold on the show immediately headed over to YouTube to rewatch the funny moment.
“That was hilarious!! 🤣🤣🤣 We love Vanna,” one person wrote in the comments section of the video. “Just when you thought you knew somebody! Oh, well. We love you just the same, Vanna!” another added. “OMG are you serious Vanna because how could you do that 😮😭🤭💙,” a different fan jokingly said.
For those wondering how dumplings and biscuits can be interchangeable in food, chicken and dumplings recipes commonly call for this substitution. The Southern dish is traditionally made with homemade dumplings, but if chefs are crunched for time, premade biscuits from the supermarket can be rolled out and cut into slices to mimic the real thing.
So there you go!
