Contestant Emil de Leon stunned “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak with an epic guess for an amazing win, and he walks away with $45,000.

De Leon only knew he was guessing a “thing” and that it started with “NE.” Here’s what the board looked like: NE_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

“This looks tough to me. It’s a thing,” Sajak said. “You’re a really good problem solver but I don’t know. You have 10 seconds. Keep talking, maybe the right thing will pop out. Good luck.”

“Tonight’s ‘Wheel of Fortune’ features most amazing solve in my 30+ years on the show,” Sajak later tweeted.
