Not too much of a surprise. If you watch Wheel enough, the bonus puzzles usually make use of more uncommon letters, like B,G,Z,J,K,Q,X, etc.
The guy obviously watches a lot.

Its possible. A mathematician might be able to narrow down the odds but someone good with letters might not have any problem with it.

After all several letters had already been removed as possibles which narrows it down considerably in a language with only 26 letters.

Thanks, by the way, I don’t know much about the show, except that he is a Vietnam vet, and what I learned from reading Vanna White’s autobiography.

I remember one contestant who didn’t get the bonus puzzle and said “Phooie” in disappointment...and that was the word.

So he didn't guess “a group of pill pushers”? That's one of my favorite WOF blooper answers.

It would surprise if that hasn’t already caught on, or will, it has the ring of one of those phrases that catches on for a few years.

It’s beautifully un-PC yet no Asian would ever complain about it.

My favorite Pat Sajak clip was one time the guy got to select his own letters on the final puzzle. He picked “L” and the vowel “E.” Pat said “Do you even watch this show?”

I believe these are examples of ‘remote viewing’ style information accessing ... the person who formulated the puzzle was probably RV tapped for the solve.

And he used to write plenty of good articles. He’s done nothing for years now on that front.

Kind of makes sense if he trained him self to run through the remaining consonants and vowels alphabetically, but yeah, still something.
