'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.

That is precisely why Pat Sajak says each and every game, "Talk it out".

It works~!!

I saw this last night, and even though he guessed it correctly, there was a slight delay in showing the answer. I don't think even the techs were expecting that to happen. And it wasn't his first guess.

Yes, he was good. He solved those puzzles with very few letters. I could tell he was going to the bonus round early on.

I actually saw this show when Emil was trying to come up with the answer. He said it then the words flashed on the screen surprising Vanna, Pat and Emil. It looked impossible with the two letters he had up. Congratulations Emil, I don't know how you did i!

I saw the program. He was hot during regular play. Very focused.

It isn't that hard to do, actually. He explained how he deducted what letters were left.

Had a bit of luck also. Many many times I get the answers before the contestants, but not last night.
