VIDEO: Best Guess Ever on “Wheel of Fortune”

He says it was the “used letter board” that pushed him toward a seemingly impossible win on Wheel of Fortune. Last night’s contestant Emil de Leon from Daly City, CA. solved a seemingly-impossible puzzle last night. The show’s tally of the used and unused letters is rarely seen by home viewers, but he says he saw that the “b” was unused and he started working with that when his chosen letters provided little help.

It seems like the production crew had already decided the puzzle was unsolvable. After an uncharacteristically long delay, Sajak realized the wild guess was correct. Later, Sajak called it the “most amazing solve” in his three decades on the show.
