Episode 104
March 28

Last time, Mark Staniec failed on level 4 and went home with nothing. Meanwhile Elia Cantu took home $50,000, but when playing with house money, she too was left lifeless. Then Blake Duplant outlasted his opponent in an elimination level 1 to take $1000 and the right to play the other nine levels. Can he make his way to the million dollar minute?

LEVEL 2 - $2500: CARD NINJA. The contestant must stick a playing card in a watermelon by throwing it ninja-star style once.

And as always,  "failure to complete this task in 60 seconds may result in ELIMINATION."

First attempt... FAIL.

Second attempt... COMPLETE (:43, $2500). Blake puts the $2500 card in his pocket and plays on

LEVEL 3 - $5000: ELEPHANT MARCH. Eight bottles are placed eight feet apart in parallel lines. The contestant much wear a standard pair of pantyhose, one leg on his head and the other hanging with a baseball. Using the momentum of the ball, he must knock down all eight bottles by march along a center line.

First attempt... COMPLETE (:28, $5000). We march on with...

LEVEL 4 - $10,000: HANGNAILS. The contestant must hang six 3.5-inch flat head nails on a string for a three-count. A delicate hand is required, as one wrong move will force the contestant to start again.

First attempt... COMPLETE (:17, $10,000). Blake decides to play for the guaranteed money to open up his own surf shop with...

LEVEL 5 - $50,000: EGG ROLL. Using a medium pizza box as a fan, the contestant must propel three eggs down stage to a waiting area.

First attempt... COMPLETE... then not... then as soon as he's warned by the audience... COMPLETE (:00, $50,000). Now win or lose, Blake is playing with house money.

LEVEL 6 - $75,000: KEEP IT UP. A contestant must keep two feathers up in the air using only the air in their lungs. The feathers cannot touch the ground or the player's body.

First attempt... FAIL (:17).

Final attempt... COMPLETE (:00, $5,000)! Will Blake take $75,000 and go home or stay and play? He... will play some more!

LEVEL 7 - $125,000: CADDY STACK. The contestant must use one of 350 dimples on a golf ball to stack three of them for a three-count.

Final attempt... COMPLETE (:23, $125,000). Can Blake complete three more games? Not with one life left. He's going home with $125,000.

Next up to play in the ring is a law clerk originally from Lone Grove, OK, MATT "Sugar" MARR! He's what we call a repeat offender. He was on "Show Me the Money." We're about to show him...

LEVEL 1 - $1000: NOSE DIVE. Using petroleum jelly as an adhesive, the contestant must transfer five cotton balls from one end of the stage to the other... using only their nose.

First attempt... COMPLETE (:03, $1000). Matt plays on with...

LEVEL 2 - $2500: BUCKET HEAD. Standing five feet from a wall, a player must bounce 3 ping-pong balls off of a floor onto the wall and into a bucket on his head one at a time.

First attempt... COMPLETE (:32, $2500).

LEVEL 3 - $5000: WHACK JOB. An egg stands atop a toilet paper spool, which stands atop an aluminum pie tin, which stand atop a half-filled glass of water. Using only the spring action from a broom, the contestant must whack the pie tin so that the egg drops into the water. This must be done 12 times with no more than three misses.

First attempt... in a moment. But here, a preview of coming events.

LEVEL 10 - $1,000,000: SUPER COIN. One quarter could win you $1 million. The contestant must bounce a quarter 15 feet into a water jug 5 gallons in volume with an opening 2 inches in length. "Completing this task in 60 seconds will make you a MILLIONAIRE."

Will someone play this game in a future episode? Stay tuned.

Back to Whack Job, though. Matt... COMPLETES it (:39, $5000). Matt wants to buy a house for him and his dog. He'll avoid the doghouse with...

LEVEL 4 - $10,000: TRIPLE PONG PLOP. A contestant must bounce ping pong balls off of the surface of three 11-inch dinner plates and land three in a fishbowl on the other side.

First attempt.... FAIL.

Second attempt... COMPLETE (:07, $10,000)! Matt will return to face the $50,000 level next time.
