Wheel of Fortune just may be the game show that generates the most viral videos.

The latest one captures Matt DeSanto’s record-breaking, incredibly good fortune.

The episode, which aired on Dec. 26, started off with DeSanto solving the puzzle with only one “E” having been shown. But his fortune only continued from there, and by the end he had amassed $91,892 in winnings.

According to the Today show, that is a new record for the show, which is a 39-year-old series.

The show posted about DeSanto’s win on Facebook, with an image that read “Here’s a shovel. Why don’t we just throw you some money.”

Though his fellow contestants must have been jealous, one of them tweeted about their shock.
