'Wheel of Fortune' contestant somehow guesses correct answer with only 4 letters

Wheel of Fortune contestant Jessie Rebhan had quite the daunting task ahead of her to solve Thursday night's bonus puzzle. The middle-school teacher from Palmetto Bay, Florida only had 4 of the 13 letters in the 3-word puzzle, but somehow managed to solve it.

The puzzle category was "What are you doing?" Jessie added P-C-D-O to the standard given R-S-T-L-N-E, resulting in the puzzle _ _ _ _ N_ / _ / _ _ _CER.

Pat Sajak immediately felt bad for Jessie, saying, "It looks daunting to me, but you know, you have ten seconds...Good luck."

Jessie ended up only needing half her time as she correctly guessed "BUYING A JUICER" almost immediately. 

Pat was shocked by her correct response, saying, "I don't understand this game! It makes no [sense]!" Fans at home were equally as shocked, with many taking to Twitter to comment.

 

Winning the bonus puzzle added $37,000 to her regular game winnings, for a total of $52,328. And while that in and of itself is impressive, fans were also impressed by the fact her husband's name is Gator. And it didn't go unnoticed that Gator wore a Lacoste shirt with an alligator/crocodile logo.
