Oahu contestant makes amazing puzzle solve on ‘Wheel of Fortune’


This week “Wheel of Fortune” is airing episodes that were taped on the Big Island last September.

On Tuesday night, an Oahu contestant made an amazing puzzle solve that still has people talking.

Rufus Cumberlander of Ewa Beach solved the 17-letter puzzle with just one letter. (Watch the video to see what happened.)

So how did he do it?

“So I started thinking about 10 to 12 letters of ‘matches’ so championship match, professional match, and then volleyball match cause volleyball for Hawaii so that was the three I was going with,” said Cumberlander. “I was gonna call them in that order and it happened to be championship match. Which was first and right!”

He won $7,100.

This is the final week of the Hawaii episodes. You can watch them Thursday and Friday at 6:30 p.m. on KHON2.
