You have got to see this! On a recent episode of ‘Wheel of Fortune’ a contestant took a major risk– and it paid off big time!
After over 30 years on the air, it seems that Wheel of Fortune is still capable of creating thrilling moments. One such moment occurred on the Feb. 18 episode of the long running gameshow, when contestant Rufus made a totally remarkable guess. Check out the insane winning moment inside!
‘Wheel Of Fortune’: One Letter Victory
Well wayta go Rufus!
While getting his chance at the big bucks on Wheel of Fortune, Rufus had a tough task ahead of him. The category was the very vague “events,” and Rufus was shown a two-word answer, consisting of a daunting 17 letters.
He went with the always useful “T” as his first letter, and as host Pat Sajak confirmed just one T, Vanna White tapped the square to illuminate its place. With $700 on the line, what happened next will blow you away!
“Championship match,” Rufus said without any hesitation.
A Long Running Classic
“Yeah that’s right!” Pat said, clearly a bit stunned, before walking over to Rufus and shaking his hand to congratulate him.
“Somebody put something in the loco mock,” Pat added, remarking upon the incredible guess. The move brought Rufus’ total to a whopping $7,100, surely making his triumphant moment all the more sweet.
Though Rufus’ moment was absolutely incredible, it wasn’t actually the first time such a jaw dropping guess had been made on the show. Actually, back in 2010, another contestant fared similarly. Caitlin was given only one letter, “L,” to solve the sentence “I’ve Got A Good Feeling About This” and she totally nailed it.
Talk about a money shot!
