Sister Act
July 7

It all began earlier this year with a few household items and the promise of a million bucks. It didn't catch like fire, but it caught enough that NBC gave it a promise of new episodes over the summer. But that's not all, folks, as Minute to Win It is going to take the next step up, searching for a big winner in a Million Dollar Mission. More on that later, though.

Right now, we begin the Minute to Win It Summer event with a pair of identical twins, You remember them from "American Idol" a few years back. Let's see how they do when they're actually playing to win a million bucks. Here comes, once again, JESSIE and BECKY O'DONOHUE (25, Dobbs Ferry, NY)

Rules stay the same, however as a team game, they'll decide who plays what.

LEVEL 1 - $1000: ROLL WITH IT. Using a continuous windmill motion, a player must unroll two rolls of toilet paper onto their arms.

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

This may leave JESSIE a bit wiped.

First attempt... COMPLETE (:26, $1000). And as of this episode, you complete this level, you're guaranteed that money.

LEVEL 2 - $2500: NOODLING AROUND. Using only one uncooked strand of spaghetti in their mouth, a contestant must pick up SIX pieces of penne pasta from the table. Any use of hands is a foul, resulting in an automatic loss of life. Break the spaghetti strand, and you must start over.

BECKY gets to use her noodle here.

First attempt... FAIL (TIME OUT, two lives remaining)

Second attempt... COMPLETE (:15, $2500)

LEVEL 3 - $5000: TWEEZE ME. Using a pair of tweezers, a contestant must maneuver a Tic Tac through a square on a tennis racket positioned upwards with a ball on it without knocking the ball over. They must do this once out of five attempt.

Doing this for dad is... JESSIE.

First attempt... FAIL (:02, one life remaining)

Final attempt... COMPLETE (:17, $5000)

LEVEL 4 - $10,000: HIGH STRUNG. Using a looped string, the contestant must transport a raw egg from one bottle across the 60 Second Circle to another. This must be repeated twice.

Who hopes they won't crack under the pressure? BECKY hopes they won't.

Only attempt... COMPLETE (:10, $10,000)

LEVEL 5 - $50,000: ON THE HOOK. Using a paperclip connected to a chopstick as a makeshift rod, the contestant must reel in a house key using only their mouth. They must grab all four without dropping one.

It's BECKY's line, anyway.

Only attempt... COMPLETE (:20, $50,000).

We'll get back to the game later, but right now, it's EDWARD GONZALEZ's chance at the Minute to Win It Million Dollar Mission. All he has to do to win the million is get past Supercoin in one try.

LEVEL 10 - $1,000,000: SUPERCOIN. 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 1.75 inches in length. "Completing this task in 60 seconds will make you a MILLIONAIRE."

Only attempt... FAIL. But you wouldn't believe how close he was to it. We'll try again next week.

Back to the game with Jessie & Becky.

LEVEL 6 - $75,000: WHIPPERSNAPPER. Using a towel attached to the floor, a contestant must whip THREE ping pong balls 15 feet to a bucket.

JESSIE gets to whip us into shape.

Only attempt... COMPLETE (:03, $75,000)

LEVEL 7 - $125,000: PROPELLER HEAD. The contestant must launch a Chinese propeller and land it in a basket 15 feet away.

BECKY has landed a couple in practice, so she'll get the nod.

Only attempt... FAIL (TIME OUT, GAME OVER). But the O'Donohue twins leave with $50,000, which is $50,000 more than what they won on "American Idol".

The Minute to Win It Summer continues next week.
