The Most Amazing “Wheel Of Fortune” Win Of All Time

Everyone is talking about the recent stunner of a round on Wheel Of Fortune where a contestant finished a large puzzle with only one letter revealed, including TIME Magazine:

Who needs to go through the rigmarole of actually playing “Wheel of Fortune” when you can solve a seven-word, 27-letter puzzle with only the one letter filled in?  If you’re Caitlin Burke, you clearly don’t. Not for nothing is she being dubbed the luckiest quiz show contestant of all time. The magazine fashion editor won this particular prize puzzle (bagging a trip to the Caribbean in the process) by somehow guessing the correct answer with only a solitary ‘L’ and the clue ‘phrase’ appearing on the board.  If you want to get technical, one of her fellow contestants had incorrectly asked for the ‘R’ and there was an apostrophe in the first word. But from the available information, Burke nailed the correct answer of, ‘I’VE GOT A GOOD FEELING ABOUT THIS.’  A stunned host Pat Sajak summed up the incredible feat with the phrase on all our minds: “Is it just me or was that the most amazing solve we’ve ever had?”
