Could you solve this Wheel of Fortune puzzle?

It seems almost impossible, buta  contestant named Emil solved it on his first guess, turning two letters in $45,000 during the bonus round.

His reaction is priceless and even host Pat Sajak couldn’t believe it!

After being given the letters “R, S, T, L, N, E” and selecting the letters “H, M, D, O,” Emil had only “N” and “E” to work with on the final puzzle, a three-word phrase which was simply described as a “thing.” Sajak advised him to just talk it out.

“You’re a very good puzzle solver, but I don’t know,” Sajak said. “You have 10 seconds. Keep talking. Maybe the right thing will pop out. Good luck.”

Emil nailed it on his first try: “New baby buggy.”

The host latter tweeted “Tonight’s ‘Wheel of Fortune’ features most amazing solve in my 30+ years on the show. No kidding.” The video of the win has since gone viral.
