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.
