'Wheel Of Fortune' Contestant Stuns With Incredible Guess

'Wheel Of Fortune' Contestant Stuns With Incredible Guess
It very well could be luckiest guess in game show history.

"New baby buggy? New baby, new... Oh my god!"

It seemed like all was lost for Wednesday night's "Wheel of Fortune" contestant Emil when none of his guessed letters in the bonus round showed up on that giant florescent board.

But, as Deadspin so perfectly words it, he threw up a Wheel of Fortune equivalent of a Hail Mary touchdown pass and randomly guessed the whole thing. On his first try.

Emil's win was so shocking, it even impressed Pat Sajak. The host tweeted, "Tonight's 'Wheel of Fortune' features most amazing solve in my 30+ years on the show. No kidding."

Sajak jokingly patted Emil down to see if he was hiding anything to help him with that incredible win.

It didn't look like the lucky guy had anything in his pockets during the show, but he went home with an extra $45,000 in them after his guess won him the bonus round.

I saw the show and it was amazing. Most of us have had those 'magical moments' - something just kicks in and we totally surprise ourselves. It was fun to watch.

Just watched video I didn't before 1st comment - I still think it is on the up & up - at least I hope so - BUT - why did it take so long for the correct answer to appear on the board? Usually the answer pops up as soon as it is given.

My guess would be they (the person behind the controls) were as shocked as anyone would be. Probably thought he would never get it. I wouldve been taken by surprise with that too.
