Wheel of Fortune isn't the hardest game show on television, nor is it the show contestants go on to prove how smart they are, but when someone solves a puzzle with just one letter it's still mighty impressive.
Enthusiastic word nerd Robert Santoli went on Wheel of Fortune to win, and after guessing a puzzle with only one letter he continues to crush the game by solving puzzles with just a few letters in place.
Robert's performance was so impressive people thought he'd cheated, but the show cleared him and paid him his $76k in prize money.
So how did Robert win big at Wheel of Fortune? He studied the show for over 10 years, creating spreadsheets to study letter and word patterns found in the show, especially the link between subjects and certain words or phrases.
