More like Cube of Fortune.

A graduate student and barista had an interesting flex to show off at a bizarre request from “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak.

“Take something out of your pocket,” Nathan Benson from Plano, Texas, was told by Sajak.

The accounting student nonchalantly pulled a jumbled Rubik’s Cube out of his jacket pocket and started solving the colorful square while continuing his conversation with Sajak.

An eager Sajak asked Benson what the record was for the fast-solving of the cube, to which the barista says, “Like three and a half seconds,” revealing that he’s much slower at solving the Rubik’s cube with his eyes opened.

“I’m really good at solving it blindfolded, and I actually have a Texas state record for solving it blindfolded,” Benson humbly bragged to the host.

After being asked by Sajak to pull out what’s in his pocket, Benson quickly solved the brain puzzle in under 30 seconds.

Before Sajak could ask another question, the contestant solved the puzzle.

Benson solved the brain game live on air in about 15 seconds and proudly held up the speed feat for the audience to notice.

After solving his pocket puzzle, Benson went to unscramble the remaining puzzles in the game and was crowned victor of the episode — winning nearly $30K.

Benson was then sent to the bonus round, where he could not solve the puzzle after selecting the four letters “DBCO.”

The puzzle ended up being “Qualified Judge” — and to Benson’s credit, he did guess the word “judge.”

Sajak, 76, who’s been hosting “Wheel of Fortune” since 1981, gave fans of the game show pause on two different occasions earlier this week.

On Tuesday, the host put contestant Fred Jackson in a playful chokehold after he completed a perfect game.

Before Jackson took home $75,800 in total from the game and bonus round and was grappled by Sajak, he did mention to the host that he’s a professional wrestler who does the sport “for fun.”

On Wednesday, Sajak got annoyed by another contestant who was having some trouble solving the puzzle and told the player to “solve the darn puzzle.”
