Oh, baby!

A “Wheel of Fortune” puzzle master scored a shocking victory in the final round of Wednesday’s broadcast to win a grand total of $63,099.

Contestant Emil was in a tough spot with just two letters to help him name a three-word "thing" in under 10 seconds.

“This looks tough to me,” host Pat Sajak said.

But Sajak acknowledged that Emil was a "very good puzzle solver." He advised that he "keep talking — maybe the right thing will pop out."

Emil then guessed the right answer on the first try, prompting furious cheers from the audience.

Sajak gave Emil a mock patdown then opened the the show’s prize envelope to reveal a $45,000 boost to the earlier loot he’d won.

“I’m rather stunned,” Sajak observed.
