Wheel of Fortune” contestant “Emil” made a really good $45,000 game ending guess Wednesday night. A guess so good that host, Pat Sajak, pretended to frisk Emil after he won.

There were only two letters on the board: N and E. The category was “thing” and there were three words spelled with three letters, four letters, and five letters respectively.

Pat Sajak had just commented, “This looks though to me.”

“Keep talking and maybe the right thing will pop out,” Sajak continued.

The first guess out of Emil’s mouth solved the puzzle, “new baby buggy,” for a total win of $63,099.

Emil jumped in the air as the audience began an uproar of screeches and cheers.

The show aired on Wednesday night, and within 24 hours the YouTube video of the event had 1,600,000 views.
