My late mother and stepfather watched  'Wheel of Fortune' religiously. I can remember my stepfather hollering out the answers (usually wrong) very loudly. We'd all turn to see what was happening. Now, I hate puzzles so I didn't want to look. Occasionally I'd get pulled in. I was always amazed by how quickly the contestant -- by just seeing a few letters revealed -- would recognize the phrase or name.

But, a contestant this past week, Emil, took the cake when he got the bonus puzzle right with TWO letters! That got him an extra $45,000.

Below is the complete video and watch Pat Sajak's expression of unbelief.

Truly epic.
