Caitlin Burke’s “Good Feeling”
Wheel of Fortune history may have just been made.
Contestant Caitlin Burke, 26 solved a puzzle on Wheel of Fortune with only one letter on the board – a single letter “L”.
In about 5 seconds, she blurted out “I’ve got a good feeling about this” and she won a Caribbean vacation.
Even Pat Sajak, the show’s host, was shocked.
“Wait a minute. Let me get over this first,” he said, smiling. “Is it just me, or was that the most amazing solve we’ve ever had?”
Burke, who lives in New York, said she is a huge “Wheel of Fortune” fan and often impresses her family and friends by solving puzzles when they watch at home.
“I’m not bragging. There’s a million and one things I’m not good at, but for some reason, I don’t know, I’ve always just been really good at ‘Wheel of Fortune,'” she said.
When asked what advice she could offer to aspiring contestants, Burke said practice. “Watch the show and think positive.” Appropriately, she added: “If you have a good feeling about something, just go for it!”
