Kevin Vs. The Clock
Alec "Ace" Sterning
proved he was just that, but he couldn't beat Supercoin
to pick up $1 million, instead opting for $100,000.
Now back in the mid
2000s, there was a band called The Jonas Brothers. They
were three brothers... named Jonas. One of them is a big
fan of this show and now that one, Kevin, is going to
enter the Sixty Second Circle to play for his charity,
Change for the Children.
Now the lowdown on the
celebrity showdown. Because this is a charity game,
whatever money Kevin wins is guaranteed. Other than
that, the rules stay the same, meaning that he's got
three lives and, as always... "failure to complete this
task in 60 seconds may result in ELIMINATION."

contestant's appendages are strapped to four pedometers. They must use whatever
