Guy Solves Impossible Wheel of Fortune Puzzle in One Guess. Wins $45K
With his grandfather, parents and brother in the crowd, Wheel of Fortune contestant Emil solved the seemingly impossible Bonus Round puzzle on his first guess with only two of the twelve letters revealed! The bonus puzzle netted Emil $45,000 USD to give him a grand total of $63,099 on the day.
If you skip to the 2:40 mark you will also learn that there is a USED LETTER BOARD off-screen that contestants can use to help them solve the word puzzles. This by no means diminishes Emil’s feat, I just can’t believe I never knew that!
