“Wheel of Fortune” contestant Emil de Leon surprised even himself with his Hail Mary guess the final puzzle on the show. The video from his March 19 appearance where he guessed “new baby buggy” on his first try with only two letters on the world captured the nation’s attention — and that of Ellen DeGeneres.

DeGeneres invited him on her daytime talk show where she and guest Jason Bateman asked de Leon about his longtime love for “Wheel of Fortune” (he says his first letters were R-S-T-L-N-E) and the fact that he got on the show as a guest on his first try. They also played another round of the word guessing game with him on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to hilarious results.
