An avid outdoorsman from Brentwood, California impressed everyone on "Wheel of Fortune" by solving a puzzle with only one letter on the board.
With a big smile and enthusiastic personality Christian Dixie completely dominated Wheel of Fortune, Tuesday night. The Ball State freshman was part of College Week. Christian has been a fan of the show since he was 9 months old. In fact, he even wrote an article on the history of the show for his college digital newspaper, The Byte. Which is probably why he was so excited to be on the show, and his enthusiasm was infectious. Host Pat Sajak thought Christian was both “happy” and “adorable.” And many, MANY, fans took to twitter to discuss how much his hand clapping and positivity meant to them, especially given the current global concerns over COVID-19. Christian was also one of the most impressive players in recent memory. He ran two puzzles all by himself. He was so fast that at one point after solving a puzzle, Pat said, “Apparently your Uber driver's on the clock, and you have to [go].” At times, Pat seemed bewildered by Christian’s impressive play. After Christian easily won the regular rounds, Pat said, “Should we bother with the [bonus] puzzle or do you just want to solve it?” Amazingly, Christian did know the bonus puzzle before guessing any letters. So the letters he guessed were of course part of the solve, including a “w” and “v.” This amazed Pat even further, and after awarding Christian almost $69,000 in winnings he just had to know more about his remarkable performance. Christian nonchalantly said he knew the second word was “ocean” and assumed the four letter adjective was wavy. Pat sarcastically replied, “It's as simple as that.”
On Wednesday's "Wheel of Fortune," viewers learned, in a hilarious way, that Pat Sajak is not familiar with the term "raise the roof."
After the puzzle drew laughs from the audience, Pat Sajak played up the sexual innuendo by feigning an urgent explanation, "Uh...it's a grilling expression."
Middle-school teacher Jessie Rebhan only had 4 of the 13 letters in the 3-word bonus round puzzle but somehow managed to solve it and take home over $50,000.
The answer left host Pat Sajak speechless, as he pantomimed zipping his mouth shut, locking it, and throwing away the key.
