‘Wheel of Fortune’ Contestant Solves Puzzle With 1 Letter, Earns Record $91,000

Everyone loves a boneheaded game show contestant, but sometimes you gotta give it up for a contestant who’s actually really, really good.

Like this guy.

With all the holiday hubbub last week, you may have missed the December 26 episode of ‘Wheel of Fortune,’ which is a shame because Matt DeSanto improbably solved this puzzle, even though there was only one letter on the board.

It was clearly a sign of things to come, as he won every puzzle en route to winning $91,892 — that’s the most prize money ever collected in one episode of ‘Wheel of Fortune.’

His performance was so good the show had to give him props on social media, which he certainly deserved.
