Pat Sajak is truly a pro, taking a potentially awkward situation, and smoothing it right over, after incorrectly assuming a contestants fiance' was a woman.It happened on Thursday's Wheel of Fortune during the traditional host/contestant chit-chat portion of the show. Pat knew the contestant was engaged, and jokingly commented about the chubby contestant getting a woman to marry him. Turns out it wasn't a woman.

Both Pat and the gay contestant handled the awkward moment very well. But, it just goes to show that in today's world, you can't assume ANYTHING.
