Super duper guess: Wheel of Fortune player solves nearly impossible puzzle in seconds

21 March 2014 / 2 years 7 months ago

If you don't believe in luck, you might just change your mind after watching how this guy made a super duper guess on Wheel of Fortune and managed to take home $45,000.

Emil, a contestant on Wheel of Fortune, shocked host Pat Sajak by solving a practically impossible bonus round puzzle with a vague "thing" category and only the letters "N" and "E" to help.

Even Sajak doubted Emil's chances, saying, "You're a very good puzzle solver, but I don't know," on the video from YouTube which is going viral.

However, Emil won the $45,000 prize after guessing the 12-letter phrase on his first try to the amazement of Sajak, the audience, and most of all, Emil himself.

Sajak even tweeted about it later that night, saying: "Tonight's 'Wheel of Fortune' features most amazing solve in my 30+ years on the show. No kidding."

However, not everyone is convinced of its authenticity, as viewers left comments like: "I knew the Wheel of Fortune ratings were low, but did they have to stage this in order to get more ratings?" and "I smell a conspiracy."
