A “Wheel of Fortune” contestant pulled off an amazing bonus round solve in Thursday’s episode.
The contestant, named Emil, had 10 seconds to guess a three-word “thing” that began with the letters “N” and “E.”
“Uh, this looks tough to me,” host Pat Sajak commented. “Keep talking. Maybe the right thing will pop out.”
The answer turned out to be the first phrase Emil blurted out.
It seems his accomplishment took even the producers by surprise. Emil kept going for several seconds before the show revealed his original guess was correct.
He won $45,000 for the answer and a total of $63,099 for the night.
On Twitter, Sajak called it the “most amazing solve in my 30+ years on the show.”
“Wheel of Fortune” airs weekdays at 6:30 p.m. on KHON2.
