'Wheel of Fortune' Contestant Solves Puzzle with One Letter

On the Nov. 5 show, Burke spun the wheel and landed on $900. She guessed "L" and only filled in one letter of the phrase on the board. However, that didn't stop her from solving the puzzle.
Yes, with just one letter on the board, she solved the puzzle. The phrase? Appropriately, "I've got a good feeling about this."
Pat Sajak and the other contestants appeared visibly stunned by Burke's gamble.
Burke told NJ.com that she grew up in a super-competitive family, especially when it came to game shows. The young fashion editor aspired to be on 'Wheel of Fortune' for years, even putting it above her career goals in high school. "Someone would say, 'I want to be a vet,'" Burke said. "I said, 'I want to go on Wheel of Fortune.'"
Looks like years of practice really do pay off.
