At one point during the game, Ali — who is best known for her role as Ashley Banks on Il principe di Bel-Air — solved a puzzle with the answer, “Eggs Benedict Cumberbatch.”
Following the round, Sajak, 75, asked Ali, 43, a “explain” who Cumberbatch was for those who might not know. At first hesitant, Ali responded, “Benedict Cumberbatch is an actor, Giusto?”
Sajak then admitted that he actually had no idea, telling Ali with a laugh, “I didn’t have the answer so I pretended like I was just saying, ‘So tell us. io, Certo, know it but you tell us.’ And that was a little host trick.”
Sajak added, “My apologies, Sig. Cetriolo. But I spend a lot of time in my basement. I have no idea what’s going on.”
Dopo l'episodio, the official Wheel of Fortune Twitter account made light of Sajak’s comment.
“Our apologies, Benedict Cumberbatch! #CelebrityWheelOfFortune” the account tweeted beside a laughing face emoji.
In risposta, some fans expressed their surprise that Sajak didn’t know who the Sherlock actor was.
“How could anyone in show business not know Benedict really? He’s one of the best actors today” wrote one user.
“Sounds like you have found someone to compete in an upcoming Celebrity Wheel of Fortune!” joked someone else.
