London, Nov 10 (ANI): A footage of US quiz show contestant swept the web after solving a Wheel of Fortune puzzle with just one letter revealed.

Caitlin Burke, 26, from New Jersey, had just an “I” on the board when she correctly guessed the phrase “I’ve got a good feeling about this” was behind the 26 blank spaces.

Her genius gamble won her a 4,000 pounds Caribbean holiday and left the studio audience stunned.

When Pat Sajak, the veteran host of the US version of the show asked how she had known the mystery phrase, Burke said, “I saw that it was a small word, so [thought] ‘I’ve’.”

“And I thought maybe ‘got a feeling about’, so I’ve got a hunch and I said ‘I’ve got a feeling about this’,” the Sun quoted Burke as saying.

Sajak replied sarcastically, “Oh, in that case it was easy!”

Burke also won a total of more than 53,000 dollars (32,850 pounds) on the programme. She said she planned to pay off her student loan and buy a Chanel handbag. (ANI)
