Tonight, the Minute to Win It summer
continues with two friends and two sets of two sisters each all hoping
to climb two money ladders two get two a million. It's all two much for
one hour... but that's what we're getting anyway.
First up, SHALAINA FOTHERINGHAM (Orem,
UT) & MARINA SHAW (Seattle). Everyone thinks that they're sisters, but
they're really just BFFs... who claim to be dorks. I don't know of any
dorks who look like that, but any dork is a good dork in my book. Marina
wants to send her brother to school Shalaina wants to send her parents
on a honeymoon that they never had.
LEVEL 1: NICE BUILD:
Use 15 reams of copy paper to created a three-story pyramid structure.
And as always... "Failure to complete this task
in 60 seconds may result in ELIMINATION."
First attempt.. COMPLETE! (:16, $1000)
LEVEL 2: 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 or dropped
pasta is a foul, resulting in an automatic loss of life.
First attempt (Shalaina)... COMPLETE! (:05,
LEVEL 3: MAZE CRAZE:
The contestant must use quick reflexes to maneuver a marble down a maze of
rubber bands without it falling off the edge.
First attempt (Marina)... FAIL (TIME OUT, TWO lives remaining)
Second attempt (Shalaina)... FAIL (TIME OUT, ONE
FINAL attempt (Marina)... COMPLETE! (:06, $5000)
LEVEL 4: ON THE REBOUND:
A contestant must shoot a ping-pong ball off of a clipboard attached to their
partner and into a wastebasket. This must be done THREE times.
Only attempt... COMPLETE! (:41, $10,000).
LEVEL 5: SPOON
FROG: A contestant must use a teaspoon to
launch another teaspoon into a glass. This must be repeated TWICE each.
Only attempt.... FAIL (TIME OUT, GAME OVER).
Shalaina & Marina will be walking away with $1000.
FINAL attempt (Steve-O)... COMPLETE! (:08,
Next up, ELIZABETH & KASSANDRA CARRILLO, sisters
from Sylmar, CA who have a pet goose. They want to help their parents get a
better house (currently, they live in a two-bed house). They're up against CARA
& BECCA SEYMOUR from Ashtabula, OH. Cara is a student at Julliard, while Becca
works in finance. They're playing for their grandparents to retire and to
preserve the family farm.
But, since this is a head-to-head game, only one
team of sisters can win. First to four gets $50,000.
H2H LEVEL 1: STACK ATTACK:
Using 36 plastic cups, erect a pyramid structure, then deconstruct it by sliding
the cups downward diagonally into one single stack.
Winner... BECCA (SEYMOURS lead, 1-0)
H2H LEVEL 2: PING TAC TOE:
Using red and white 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.
Winner... KASSANDRA (TIED at 1)
H2H LEVEL 3: A BIT DICEY:
One player must balance six dice on a popsicle stick using only their mouths.
The stack must be held for a three-count.
Winner... TO BE CONTINUED... next time.
