'Kinky' 'Wheel of Fortune' puzzle leaves viewers red-faced

With television shows becoming increasingly more violent and sex-driven, it's nice to know that we can still sit down as a family and watch the iconic Wheel Of Fortune for some wholesome and clean entertainment.

Well, that was until last night, when viewers of the long-running were left red-faced after one particular puzzle answer.

The moment came during regular play when contestant Adam Goodell was able to solve the bizarre puzzle in the 'Before and After' category - but if we're being honest, the answer sounds more like an innuendo you'd expect to hear in an American Pie movie.

Watch the eyebrow-raising moment in the video below:

Seriously, has anybody else ever heard of that outside of an 18+ subscription service? Even host Pat Sajak had to give a little chuckle and a knowing smirk after the solution was revealed.

Sajak then tried to hurriedly explain innuendo, explaining: "Uh...it's a grilling expression" - much to the delight of the studio audience.

The answer, 'Brushing Up On My Italian Sausage' helped Goodell scoop an impressive $2,450 for solving the puzzle, which further helped him to advance to the bonus round.

However, the real winners of the night were the viewers, many of whom took to Twitter to shared their hilarious reactions to the suggestive solution. Here are some of our favorites:

Twitter user @MarylewRI tweeted out: "Wtf #WheelOfFortune my 85 year old mother watches your show!!" While the Twitter account @wheelwatcha simply said: "Don’t wake the kids while you’re brushing your sausage."

And for another embarrassing gameshow moment (but for a completely different reason), check out this "arrogant" Who Wants To Be A Millionaire contestant who failed on the first question.

Would you have gotten this wrong?

Seriously, what was he thinking?
