“Wheel of Fortune” has been around seemingly forever – since I was little – and sometimes I forget it’s still there. But the game show is still kickin’ and got some pub this week when a contestant made a very unlikely puzzle solve.
Here’s what Emil De Leon had to work with for the final puzzle:
You figure the first word is “new” or “net,” right? Beyond that, I wouldn’t have a clue. Yet the first guess De Leon made was the correct one: “New baby buggy.” Host Pat Sajak was stunned.
Tonight’s “Wheel of Fortune” features most amazing solve in my 30+ years on the show. No kidding.

Such an unbelievable feat has naturally raised questions about whether this was rigged. I highly doubt that, although I do wonder if a single person has uttered “new baby buggy” within the last 50 years.
The most important takeaway from all of this: Vanna White is still a total babe.
