I used to be pretty good at solving Wheel of Fortune puzzles when the show aired on British television. But I was never good enough that I’d have solved a seven-word, 27-letter puzzle with just the letter ‘L’.
This is an astonishing display of either luck, skill, or savantism, or a combination of all three. It’s not as though, “I’ve Got A Good Feeling About This” is even a memorable phrase. In fact, it’s pretty banal.
The looks given to Caitlin Burke, the woman responsible for this feat, by both the contestant standing next to her and the host of the show suggest they suspect cheating. But I don’t think that’s what has happened here.
What I also find interesting about this clip is the way the contestants applaud while the wheel is turning. They look like performing seals who start clapping on command. Is this what American TV has come down to?
