(TODAY) — The Dec. 26 episode of “Wheel of Fortune” was a lot of fun to watch for just about everybody — except perhaps for the poor contestants paired up alongside Matt DeSanto.
That’s because DeSanto not only was able to solve an early puzzle on the show after only seeing a single letter, he also ended up solving every other puzzle during the main game! By the end of the show he’d racked up $91,892, a new record for the 39-year-old series.
It all started in that early round when, with nothing more than an “E” on the board, DeSanto somehow came up with the winning answer: “The Lone Ranger.”
How? The “Wheel of Fortune” player credits luck.
