“Wheel of Fortune” broke with tradition and allowed a contestant to appear on the show twice due to a “production issue.”

A recent episode of the hit game show saw contestant Tony Harrison, a software project manager from Valencia, Calif. take a commanding lead and perform well above average, ultimately taking home the big win and a very hearty cash prize. However, “Wheel” host Pat Sajak revealed that Harrison may have had an advantage given that he previously appeared on the show.

“If Tony looks familiar -- this is Tony Harrison, who's been here before,” the host said while introducing the contestants. “We had a little production issue, and in the interests of fairness, we brought Tony back.”

Representatives for 'Wheel of Fortune' did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

However, Yahoo Entertainment reported that the “production issue” may stem from Tony’s last appearance in 2017 in which he made it all the way to the bonus round. While there, he chose the category “Phrase.” Unfortunately, the game gave him the category “What are you doing.” It’s possible that the minor gaffe may have been smoothed over by allowing Harrison to return for another go.

Harrison himself took to Twitter prior to the broadcast to briefly reflect on the journey he’s been on with “Wheel of Fortune” so far.

“From a #Wheelmobile contestant search in 2017 to an encore taping at Sony Studios in 2020, it's been quite a ride. Watch me on Wheel of Fortune, Monday, April 6th!” he told his followers.

Although new episodes continue to roll out, “Wheel Of Fortune” has actually suspended production amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“With the increasing concern surrounding COVID-19, we have decided to temporarily suspend production on Wheel of Fortune and @Jeopardy! The health and well-being of our contestants, staff, and crew are our top priority, and we will continue to monitor the situation as it develops,” a tweet announcing the suspension of production read.

The show even followed up with a note to fans explaining why new episodes are premiering with a studio audience despite guidelines on social distancing.

“A friendly reminder that the current episodes were taped months in advance, so any interactions between the contestants, Pat and Vanna, staff and crew, or the studio audience were considered safe at that time. We hope you and your loved ones are well, and thank you for watching!”

For the first time in over four decades, Wheel of Fortune is coming to prime time television. ABC's staple game show series will be kicking off an eight-week Celebrity Wheel of Fortune event on Thursday night, airing at 8 pm ET. Wheel of Fortune usually airs in the early evenings ahead of the prime time schedule, along with Jeopardy. However, for this celebrity edition, the action is being broadcast at a later time, in order to make it a more popular event.

The first episode of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune will feature SNL alum Leslie Jones, Grey's Anatomy star Chandra Wilson, and skateboarding legend Tony Hawk as its first trio of contests. Other celebrities that are slated to appear in future episodes include Karamo Brown, Chrissy Metz, Drew Carey, Jennie Garth, Chris Harrison, and more.

'As far as the game, it's going to be the same,' longtime Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak told EW. 'We've jazzed up the set a bit, made it look a little more prime-timey, whatever that means. And it's going to be a different kind of vibe. We want [the contestants] to play a good, solid game, but we're mainly there to have fun. It'll be a little lighter in attitude.'

It may be surprising to learn that there has never been a Celebrity Wheel of Fortune game before. According to Sajak, that's because they never wanted to make people sick of the show.

'Part of it is, we've always been careful about not getting the show overexposed,' Sajak said. 'We've been on a very long time, and I don't know how much Wheel is too much, but you don't want to water the product down too much. And this seemed like the time to do it because of what's going on in the world. Wheel of Fortune is kind of a sign of normalcy for people; they were very glad to have us back on the air. So this seemed like a good time to expand into prime time a little bit, at least one time, and extend that normalcy. And also, the networks frankly need programming. A lot of stuff can't shoot the way [we] do, so the timing worked out. It was good for everybody.'
