Redemption: Part 2
Last night, season 1 loser Heather Barker
returned to the 60-Second Circle for a second shot at a million. So far,
she has banked $1000 and passed THREE levels, BUT she has no lives
remaining as she tries to bank the $50,000 AND an extra life in...
BLUEPRINT BONUS LEVEL 5: ON THE HOOK (1UP):

EXTRA TIME ACTIVATED. FINAL ATTEMPT... COMPLETE!
(:02, $50,000, TWO lives remaining)
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... COMPLETE! (:13,
LEVEL 7: CADDY STACK:
The contestant must use one of 350 dimples on a golf ball to stack three of them
for a three-count.
First attempt... COMPLETE! (:41, $125,000)
LEVEL 8: MAG-NUTSTACKER:
It's the classic MTWI game turned on its head, as the contestant must now

First attempt... COMPLETE! (:01, $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 3/16" wide.
First attempt... FAIL (TIME OUT, ONE life
FINAL attempt... FAIL (TIME OUT, GAME OVER). But
Heather leaves with $250,000, which is precisely $250,000 more than what she
left with the last time. Talk about redemption.
Alas, Supercoin will have to wait for another
day. Maybe next time...
