LOS ANGELES – A Pennsylvania man managed to solve the “Wheel of Fortune” puzzle with only one letter showing.

Matt DeSanto’s winning answer was “The Lone Ranger” and earned him $2000 during the December 26 show.

It ended up being a pretty good day for DeSanto, who solved every puzzle in the game for the show’s first sweep since 2011. He didn’t win the bonus round, however, missing out on the $1 million prize.

DeSanto walked away with $92,000 for his efforts.
