'Wheel of Fortune' contestant wins with just 1 letter

Sometimes you get a good feeling about something.

That's what contestant Caitlin Burke, 26, said after her remarkable "Wheel of Fortune" solve that won her a Carribbean vacation.

With just one letter revealed - "L" - Burke correctly guessed the seven-word phrase: "I've got a good feeling about this."

Even Pat Sajak, the show's host, was shocked, according to video from Sony Pictures Studios.

"Wait a minute. Let me get over this first," he said, smiling. "Is it just me, or was that the most amazing solve we've ever had?"

    Impressive, but not at all surprising given the shows' extensive run. "I've got" is almost a given, and she was in the zone so to speak, so probably a phrase she has used personally in the past. Take that Pat!

    She must know someone behind the scenes of the show. She stated in her TV interview that she knew the seven-word puzzle with only an apostrophe showing – before they even put up the one and only letter "L"! Here starts her 15 minutes of fame! Did anyone notice on the video clips posted of the moment she "guessed" the puzzle, the look on the
    other contestant's face to the right of Sajak? Priceless!

    What we have here is the ultimate example of the fixed spectrum of the human anomaly of our pyschology. On one hand, the inalienable ability humans have to guess these type of puzzles; And, on the other, the ignorance of those who can only believe, that this woman, had to have cheated, in order to have solved it.
