Caitlin Burke: Game show gamechanger

Wheel of Fortune contestant Caitlin Burke made game show history when she answered a puzzle with only one letter showing. What was the phrase? Let's just say she had a good feeling about her answer.

Burke, a 27-year-old Hearst magazines fashion editor, managed to pull off the most amazing feat last week on Wheel of Fortune: She solved a 27-letter puzzle with just one letter showing.

The bubbly contestant spun the wheel and then asked for the letter L. Co-host Vanna White obliged and revealed the sole L in the puzzle.

No one could have predicted what would happen next. Burke asked host Pat Sajak if she could solve the puzzle. He was surprised by the request.

"Can I solve the puzzle?" she repeated.

Sajak paused for a few seconds, then finally gave the go-ahead.

Then she solved the entire puzzle, with just the one letter showing. Her answer?

"I've got a good feelings about this," she confidently shouted.

And that she did.

"That's right!" Sajak said, dumbfounded. He went over to her to get the full story.

"I had a good feelings about it," she happily replied. "What do I win? What do I win?"

She ultimately won a Caribbean Cruise for the feat that no other contestant in the history of the popular game show has been able to do.
