What Taya Somers has done which left everyone in shock?
In Wheel of Fortune, contestants often play their luck by keeping the game going even though they can solve the puzzle. But that is not the case with the player, Taya Somers. On this Wednesday’s night show Taya correctly answered the 17- letter puzzle with the help of only 2 letters that are revealed. This has left the host, Pat Sajak and the audience in a shock.
Even though the clue for the puzzle was not clear as it was only a ‘phrase’, Somers managed to answer it rightly. When it was the turn of Somers, the only letter that was on the board was ‘N’. It was the first letter of the two letter word in the phrase. She then reached the round for $650. She mentions the letter as ‘T’ and asked Sajak if she could solve the puzzle with only those 2 letters.
To this Sajak was shocked and asked, “OK?”
“A place like no other,” she guessed the answer of the puzzle which turned out to be correct!
“Of course,” a stunned Sajak said. The audience started to applaud by seeing all this.
Since she correctly guessed the puzzle so early in the round, Somers only won $650 for the puzzle. She also gets a trip to Peru valued at $8,000 told Yahoo Entertainment.
All the people present there were so much impressed by her. Many people have congratulated her on Twitter also.
