MIAMI (CBSMiami) — If you watched Wheel of Fortune this week, then you saw Miami’s own Jessie Rebhan win a fortune when she astonishingly guessed the final bonus puzzle with just four letters.
In October 2019, Leewood K-8 teacher and Palmetto Bay resident Jessie Rebhan was serving as caregiver to her grandmother. “We were watching games shows from 9 a.m. To 9 at night and a commercial.
Rebhan, a teacher at Leewood Middle School, was surrounded by friends, family, and co-workers who joined her at a neighborhood pub watch party.
- Wheel of Fortune contestant Jessie Rebhan had quite the daunting task ahead of her to solve Thursday night's bonus puzzle. The middle-school teacher from Palmetto Bay, Fla., only had four of the 13.
- The middle-school teacher from Palmetto Bay, FL squeezed every last drop out of the letters available to her during the bonus puzzle on Thursday night’s episode of “Wheel of Fortune.” The odds were.
She absolutely thrilled the crowd with her extraordinary feat.
So here’s what happened.

Rebhan made it to the final bonus puzzle where she chose “What Are You Doing?” as the category.
The standard letters given were R-S-T-L-N-E, and the additional letters she chose were P-C-D-O.
That resulted in the puzzle _ _ _ _ N_ / _ / _ _ _CER.
She only had four of the 13 letters in the three-word puzzle and only 10 seconds to guess the correct answer.
Would you know the answer?
Pat Sajak knew it was a tough one, saying, “It looks daunting to me, but you know, you have 10 seconds. … Good luck.”
Stunningly, Rebhan took only half that amount of time to blurt out her guess, “Buying a juicer,” and she was right!
Sajak was shocked saying “I don’t understand this game! It makes no sense at all.”
Rebhan said herself at the watch party, she was shocked and practically ran off the stage when she realized she won.
Rebhan’s father, at the watch party, said he wasn’t shocked. “She gets her brains from me,” he boasted proudly.
The winning answer netted her $37,000, bringing her total winnings for the game to $52,328 and a trip to Barbados.
Shocked fans took to Twitter.
Wow! “Buying a juicer” was a fantastic solve in the bonus round! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 #WheelOfFortuneRELATED: Sen. Marco Rubio Displeased That Senate Impeachment Trial Moving Forward
