Sometimes it really pays to be a good guesser.
A contestant on Wednesday, February 26th's episode of Wheel Of Fortuneleft both fellow contestants and host Pat Sajak completely stunned when she immediately solved a puzzle with only two letters.
The board only had three clues: the category "Phrase," and two letters as such:
"_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ N _ _T_ _ _ ."
Taya Somers, a business owner and a mother of five kids, as well as an impressive WOF contestant, went on to guess the correct answer: A Place Like No Other.
Everyone was totally stunned.
