There's No Place Like Home
February 9

People come into the 60-Second Circle to play for themselves... or maybe a loved one. Today, in a special 120-minute showdown against the clock, one team is playing for an entire town.

This team consists of besties LINDSAY RUSSO & MICHELLE CANNON (Kansas City, KS). \

LEVEL 1: BABY RATTLE: Using the shake, rattle, or roll technique, a contestant must transport all of the marbles and gumballs from one plastic soda bottle to another.

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

First attempt (Michelle): COMPLETE (:31, $1000)

LEVEL 2: EGG DANCE. The contestant must carry two eggs on inverted plates across the stage from one set of platforms to the other. The contestant fails the challenge if either egg drops.

First attempt (Michelle): FAIL (TIME OUT, TWO lives remaining)

Second attempt (Michelle): COMPLETE (on the buzzer, $2500)

BLUEPRINT BONUS LEVEL 3: BLOW BALL (extra life): On a pizza platter are 76 balls, three yellow, the rest red. The contestant must blow the red ping-pong balls off of a large pizza platter without knocking off the yellow ping-pong balls scattered in the mess of red ping-pong balls.

First attempt (Lindsay): COMPLETE (:12, $5000). We're back to three lives.

LEVEL 4: SPOON TUNE: The contestant must arrange 12 water glasses so that when tapped with a spoon, they play the first 12 notes of "Old MacDonald".

First attempt (Michelle): COMPLETE (:05, $10,000)

BLUEPRINT BONUS LEVEL 5: SPEED ERASER (extra 10 seconds): Players must bounce pencils off their eraser into glasses. This must be repeated 16 times

First attempt: COMPLETE (:28, $75,000). Extra time is now in play.

LEVEL 6: MEGA BUBBLE: Using only the air in their lungs, a contestant must blow a soap bubble, then guide it through an awaiting hoop downstage.

First attempt (Lindsay): COMPLETE (:38, $75,000).

We'll get to level 7 in a moment, but first, let's pause 10 seconds for stations to identify themselves. Coast to coast and around the world, this is "Minute to Win It" on the Red Network of the National Broadcasting Company.

(10 seconds for Station ID)

Welcome back.

LEVEL 7: CD DOMINOES: The contestant must line up 20 jewel cases (presumably copies of "Get Up") around a red sticker in a way that, when one is tipped over, all of them fall and the final case in the series falls into a bucket located next to the contestant.

First attempt (Michelle): COMPLETE (:00, $125,000)

LEVEL 8: FRANKENSTEIN: The contestant, arms out-stretched, must pick up three yard sticks with size-D batteries balanced at both ends and place them back at the starting point after walking around the pickup point.

First attempt (Michelle): .... COMPLETE (:04, $250,000)

LEVEL 9: GET FORKED: The contestant must roll quarters a distance of 16 feet (4.9 m) in an attempt to land one between two prongs of an upside-down fork.

First attempt (Lindsay): .... FAIL (TIME OUT, TWO lives remaining)

Second attempt (Lindsay):.... FAIL (TIME OUT, ONE life remaining).


Final attempt (Lindsay): ... FAIL (TIME OUT, GAME OVER). But they do leave with $125,000 a piece.

Next time, another contestant and another shot at a million.
