There have been all sorts of crazy "Wheel of Fortune" guesses over the years, but the one that aired Wednesday night with a contestant named Emil may be the best. Even host Pat Sajak was left stunned. 

During the bonus round, Emil was given the category of "Thing," in addition to the standard letters of R, S, T, L, N and E. He then chose H, M, D and O. All that popped up? A N and an E.  

"This looks tough to me," said host Pat Sajak, "You're a very good puzzle solver, but I don't know. You have 10 seconds. Keep talking. Maybe the right thing will pop out. Good luck."

The first "thing" out of Emil's mouth ended up scoring him $45,000. Check it out below.
