    According to NBC News and a video tweeted by the show, Blair Davis, a trucking business owner from Cardiff, California, didn't hold back when he told host Pat Sajak about his home life.

    "I've been trapped in a loveless marriage for the last 12 years to an old battle-ax named Kim," he said, drawing laughs from audience members. "She cursed my life with three stepchildren."

    He added that he has "one rotten grandson."

    An amused Sajak sarcastically shouted, "Yay!" while pumping his fist.

    "No wonder you came here," Sajak joked

    Davis later clarified that he was only kidding, saying, "I love them like nobody's business."

    Sajak then asked about the contestant's beard, a favorite of Davis' grandson.

    "Every time I threaten to shave it off, he gives me a really hard time," Davis said.

    "Don't get it tangled up in the wheel," Sajak warned.
