Entertainment: Sometimes It Just Clicks

With one letter on the board, a Wheel of Fortune contestant guessed the correct phrase.

For reasons I don't understand, the internet seems to think this is a fluke or "magical."

What really happened is... he just got lucky. After Pat says the magic words, "Time has run out, I'm going to give the wheel a final spin,..." everybody always spends their turns guessing possibilities out loud and hoping something they say is right. The guy wasn't gifted, he wasn't brilliant, he didn't even do anything special.

He just got lucky. It happens. Puzzles in the show's final round have been solved with just as few letters, but nobody seemed to make a big fuss about those, so why now?
