The Most Amazing Wheel of Fortune Guess Pat Sajak Has Ever Seen

With only the letters N and E shown on the bonus round puzzle board, Wheel of Fortune contest Emil pulled off something of a game-show miracle last night when he nailed "NEW BABY BUGGY" on his very first try. In addition to making Emil $45,000 richer, the moment may have also been the most exciting of host Pat Sajak's career, who later tweeted: "Tonight's Wheel of Fortune features most amazing solve in my 30+ years on the show. No kidding."
