With only two letters revealed and the clue “thing,” a contestant named Emil correctly solved a Wheel of Fortune puzzle in his first guess on Wednesday night, winning $45,000.
Pat Sajak reacted to the amazing solve on Twitter:
Tonight’s “Wheel of Fortune” features most amazing solve in my 30+ years on the show. No kidding.— Pat Sajak (@patsajak) March 19, 2014
Sajack added the next morning:
What made last night’s solve amazing was the generic category. Could have been “new anything.” But “baby buggy?!” Wow!— Pat Sajak (@patsajak) March 20, 2014
