Amazing ‘Wheel of Fortune’ contestant solves puzzle with just one letter
Plenty of people are good at solving Wheel of Fortune‘s puzzles. This guy’s great at it.
Some people are good at solving puzzles, but this guy may be the best Wheel of Fortune contestant ever.
Wheel of Fortune has had its share of bad contestants and really bad contestants, but Matt DeSanto is one of the best contestants the gameshow has ever seen. On Friday’s show, with “character” as the puzzle category, Matt correctly solved the three-word puzzle with only a letter “E” revealed. The winning phrase was “The Lone Ranger.” Astounded, host Pat Sajak joked, “I don’t want to cause trouble at home, but I think there’s a connection with you and Vanna.”
DeSanto wasn’t the first Wheel contestant to solve a puzzle after just one letter, but the speed with which he did it is truly impressive. He went on to dominate the rest of the episode and, as reported by People, posted the biggest total win for a contestant going into the bonus round.
