Record Breaking Wheel of Fortune Contestant Wins with 1-Letter Clue

(Video Link)

Matt DeSanto and his 2 competitors had a 3-word, 13-letter puzzle to solve. It was a character. There was one clue: a letter E at the end of the second word.

DeSanto amazingly nailed the correct answer instantly. There was no hesitation. He clicked on his buzzer and won $91,892. In the 39 years that the game show Wheel of Fortune has been on the air, no one has won as much money during normal gameplay. Read more about DeSanto's victory at the Today show (warning: auto-start video).

I'm sure "Standards & Practices" have checked it out. Ok, maybe they have. I saw that show too. I feel sorry for contestants who go through a fairly rigorous selection process, get on the show and watch someone else win all the money and prizes available. They only get $1K for being on the show. I'm still waiting for our Spin ID numbers to pop up so I can win a prize. BTW--the guy blew the final puzzle. I bet everyone was yelling the answer at their TV, and the stage director was motioning to the studio audience to keep quiet. Yes, I saw a taping session once.

I watched that episode last week and noticed that he would spin the wheel consistently so that it kept stopping within about 2 clicks each time. I felt sorry for the other 2 contestants who didn't stand a chance and when they did finally get to spin, they landed on Bankrupt or Lose a Turn.
