Like Father, Like Daughter
March 23

Tonight, a father-daughter team from California will try their hand at the games of the 60-Second Circle in hopes of taking home $1 million.

They are WAYNE KAWAMOTO & his daughter DARCY (Tustin, CA). They're very alike, very driven, and very wanting to help people. They're playing this to put Darcy through dental school.

LEVEL 1: MAD DOG: One contestant must hold a ruler with two boxes of breath mints attached, then using mad-dog-like reflexes, the contestant must empty the boxes. Another contestant must do likewise.

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

First attempt: COMPLETE (:25, $1000)

BLUEPRINT BONUS LEVEL 2: PING TAC TOE (for 10 extra seconds): Using red ping-pong balls as Xs and Os and nine water-filled glasses as a grid, you must get three in a row either across, up and down or diagonally.

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

Second attempt: COMPLETE! (:18, $2500). The 10 seconds bonus are now in play.

LEVEL 3: READY SPAGHETTI: Using a single strand of dry spaghetti in their mouths, the contestants must transfer pull-tab soda cans from one table to another, building a three-can pyramid. No hands allowed.

First attempt... COMPLETE (:01, $5000)

LEVEL 4: BOOBY TRAP: The contestant must use ping pong balls to knock a leaning potato chip can over a soda bottle. This must be repeated three times.

First attempt (Darcy)... COMPLETE! (:49, $10,000)

BLUEPRINT BONUS LEVEL 5: SPOON TUNE (for an extra life): The contestant must arrange 10 water glasses so that when tapped with a spoon, they play the first 10 notes of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat".

They choose to activate the 10-second lifeline.

First attempt (Darcy).... FAIL (TIME OUT, one life remaining)

Final attempt (Darcy).... COMPLETE (:21, $50,000). Extra life is now in play.

LEVEL 6: LAYIN' TRACK: The contestant must place clips of staples to form a track on a slanted table, going over three sections of erasers. Then they roll a marble down the track in hopes that it lands in a glass 12 feet away.

First attempt (Darcy)... COMPLETE (:08, $75,000)

LEVEL 7: CYCLONE: The contestant must spin marbles inside of three soda bottles at a time. The spins must be simultaneously held for a three-count.

First attempt (Wayne).... FAIL (MARBLE OUT, ONE life remaining)

Final attempt (Darcy) .... FAIL (MARBLE OUT, GAME OVER). But Wayne & Darcy are leaving with $50,000, which is a great start for dental school.

More antics with household objects and instant household names next time.
