WIBW Talk about a lucky guess.
Were you watching WIBW earlier this week when a contestant on the game show "Wheel of Fortune" amazed viewers and even longtime host Pat Sajak by correctly solving Wednesday night's bonus round puzzle with just two letters revealed on the board.
Emil de Leon correctly guessed the phrase "New baby buggy" when only the letters "N" and "E" were shown. The only clue he was given was that the mystery phrase was a thing.
De Leon won $45,000 for the correct guess and walked away with $63,099 in total from his appearance on the game show.
Sajak took to Twitter to share his amazement:
Tonight's "Wheel of Fortune" features most amazing solve in my 30+ years on the show. No kidding.— Pat Sajak (@patsajak) March 19, 2014
But not everybody is jumping up and down in awe. The Washington Post offered up an explanation of how solving such a puzzle may not be as tough as you might imagine.
Cynicism aside, de Leon's correct guess is certainly worth watching:
