What a wild guess! Pat Sajak was stunned by a "Wheel of Fortune" contestant who correctly guessed a long phrase of words with only a few letters for clue.
With only four letters, Jessie Rebhan, an elementary school teacher from Miami, Florida guessed the final bonus puzzle of the game. The shows' episode has amassed more than 400,000 views on YouTube.
Rebhan chose the “What Are You Doing?” category as a topic for the final bonus round. Looking at the given word problem on the screen, Sajak said the puzzle was quite difficult, with the contestant only given a few seconds to solve it.
Rebhan was given a chance to choose her own letters on the screen. Rebhan was determined to win the game.
The phrase had 13 letters, and its arrangement was _ _ _ _ N _ / _ / _ _ _ CER. She thought deeply and was later convinced that the phrase involved the word “juicer.”
"Something a juicer, uhm… buying a juicer?" she said. Under ten seconds, she eventually got it right and smooth!
Rebhan got a total of $52, 328 in cash prize, after she snagged the final bonus round worth $37,000. She also won a trip to Barbados, aside from the cash prize.
The long-time TV game show host was amazed at Rebhan's quick thinking skills. The category was a bit difficult to guess as none of the past contestants of the show got the correct answer that fast.
Just as Sajak was proud of Rebhan's win, he is also a proud father of two children.
Rebhan completely impressed Sajak, as reported by TODAY. The host thought Rebhan would have a hard time solving the problem.
It was an episode worth remembering. Many viewers took to Twitter to express their surprise and happiness for the quick-thinking contestant, as reported by Yahoo.
One viewer wrote that the Miami teacher gave the most fantastic performance in the game. Another said it was the best episode of the game show he has watched.
Just as Sajak was proud of Rebhan's win, he is also a proud father of two children, who are now fully-grown adults. He also shares his happy three-decade marriage with his wife Lesly Brown.
According to IMDB, Pat and Lesly welcomed their first child, son Patrick Michael James Sajak, in September 1990. Their second child, daughter Maggie Marie Sajak, was born in January 1995.
The family lives in Maryland, where he owns two radio stations. Pat, who has written a number of columns for the conservative magazine Human Events, flies to Los Angeles or any place, every three weeks to tape a batch of "Wheel of Fortune."
