The guy went to the Bonus Round on Wheel. He had this:
_ _LE_ _Twith, of course, R S N ruled out. He chooses his three consonants:
P M and .... "I'm gonna go with H."H? _LEH? HT? HLE_? There's simply no way H is a viable choice. (M's not good either, for that matter.)
The puzzle turns out to be ("ironically", as Pat pointed out) I BLEW IT.
