Tonight, a couple of totally together
dudes will team up to take the 60-Second Circle for $1 million... IF
they can survive 10 minutes of challenges, objects and... well, whatever
Guy has up his sleeve.
Our players are GARRETT LEMONS (San
Diego), a marine biologist who tracks turtles. Teaming up with him is
DARREN CONWAY (Concord, NC), an unemployed fence installer who is
looking to support his family.
LEVEL 1: THIS BLOWS:
A contestant must inflate a balloon, then use the escaping air to knock down 15

First attempt (Darren)... COMPLETE! (:49, $5000)

FINAL attempt... FAIL (KNOCK OUT AT 9, GAME

BLAKE DUPLANT from season one) into... get this... a relationship. She's teaming
with JAMILLA HARRIS (Bellflower, CA), a court clerk who would love to be a
judge. And you'll be happy to know that she's a game show fan from WAY back in
