WHAT MADE BLAIR DAVIS POPULAR
"Wheel of Fortune" Twitter page featured Blair's video 24hours after his live appearance on the show.
Blair revealed that he is in a loveless marriage
72-year-old presenter, Pat Sajak introduced the long-beard competitor. The crowd rumbled with laughter after Blair was offered the opportunity to talk about his family.
He opened up about being "trapped" in his relationship with his wife, and further explained the makeup of the whole family.
"I have been trapped in a loveless marriage for the last 12 years to an old battle-axe named Kim. She cursed my life with three stepchildren named Star, RJ, and Ryan and I have one rotten grandson."
The host responded to this by jokingly sympathizing with him. He said:
"No wonder you came here, you just wanted to get away from everybody."
The 72-year-old continued to ask some details from his player by asking about his beard and wanting to establish that Blair was simply being funny.
The competitor expressed that his grandson has some love for his beard which he began growing a while back. He further told the crowd how dear his family is to him.
"Absolutely! I love them like nobody's business."
