Fil-Am wins big with lucky guess on 'Wheel of Fortune'
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Was it luck or skill that helped a lucky Filipino-American nursing student win big on TV game show Wheel of Fortune?
Emil de Leon of Daly City blew host Pat Sajak away when he solved a bonus round puzzle Wednesday night with just two letters revealed.
Saying the first answer that came into his head, “new baby buggy”, de Leon nabbed $45,000.
Sajak later tweeted that de Leon’s answer was the most amazing solve he’d seen in over 30 years of hosting the show.
What made last night's solve amazing was the generic category. Could have been "new anything." But "baby buggy?!" Wow!
