What would you guess if you were on the "Wheel of Fortune," the clock was about to run out, and you only guessed "N" and "E" correctly? New Year-anything is out, New York-anything is out, Neo Come Fight is out and you are losing all hope, it seems like a trick and what even is the point of it anyway so you might as well just give up now and nothing has meaning anymore.

Unless you are Emil, featured on Wednesday night's game, who against all odds guessed the correct answer. Emil went home with $45,000 and host Pat Sajak's eternal admiration.

There have undoubtedly been some impressive moments on the show, however, so who knows -- this could happen again.
