'Wheel of Fortune' Contestant Solves 27-Letter Puzzle With Just One Letter as a Clue
One woman's amazing feat of word game mastery on Friday's episode of "Wheel of Fortune" left audiences amazed -- and maybe a little suspicious.
Contestant Caitlin Burke somehow managed to solve a 27-letter, 7-word puzzle with only the letter "L" and an apostrophe to go on. Not only that, but the actual phrase she solved (which you can try to figure out for yourself in the video below) applies perfectly to her situation:
As you can see, Burke's win netted her not just a Caribbean vacation worth about $6500, but the awe of a flabbergasted Pat Sajak, who feigned suspicion (or at least bewilderment) as Caitlin casually brushed off the accomplishment.
While it's not unusual for a contestant to solve a puzzle with only one letter as a clue, it usually happens with a much shorter sentence or phrase. And while Caitlin had the benefit of ruling out the letter "R," eliminated by a previous wheel-spinner, her triumph is incredible enough to have some wondering if she could have found a way to cheat. The simplest explanation, of course, is that she's just that good. (Or that lucky.)
