Contestant Emil Czar B. De Leon II from Daly City, California took a wild shot in the dark for the bonus round, guessing "New baby buggy," with only a few letters on the screen. Shannon Rae Green reports on the big win. VPC
This one's going viral.
It's an amazing bonus round win from one lucky/smart contestant named Emil De Leon that aired on Wheel of Fortune on Wednesday night.
The category was "thing."
The usual R, S, T, L, N and E were given to him.
He picked "H, M, D and O" to add to the pack.
Vanna White revealed only two of those letters: N and E.
"This looks tough to me," said host Pat Sajak, "You're a very good puzzle solver, but I don't know. You have 10 seconds. Keep talking. Maybe the right thing will pop out. Good luck."
The first thing that popped out just happened to be the right answer — New Baby Buggy.
He won $45,000.
Said Sajak, "I'm rather stunned!"
The game show host tweeted about it, saying it was the "most amazing solve in my 30+ years on the show."
