A Marry Me Christmas
December 21

'Twas a few days before Christmas, and all through the stage, no one won $3 mill, and the world was in a rage.
The lives were hung by the big board with care, in hopes that they wouldn't be knocked by Guy's hair.

Time to meet another pair of players. Today, it's dating couple JOSH NEEDHAM & LINDSEY POND from Hillard, OH. They've known each other for four years and have been dating for almost that long. Will they be able to take that next step? Maybe with a little $3 million help.

LEVEL 1: WREATH RELAY. As a team, the contestants must transfer a wreath to a downstage lamppost using only their heads.

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

Attempt 1... COMPLETE (:32, $1000)

LEVEL 2: HOLIDAY HUSTLE. As a team, the contestants must unspool a Christmas ribbon from a yardstick that connects the teammates to another.

Attempt 1... COMPLETE (:03, $2500)

Next, a Holiday Bonus, but only if they beat....

LEVEL 3: HOLIDAY KISS. As a team, the contestants must transfer a Christmas ornament from one clothesline to another using only their mouths. This must be done THREE times.

Attempt 1... COMPLETE (:17, $5000)

Their Holiday Bonus... EXTRA TIME! Ten seconds to be used ONCE.

LEVEL 4: FACE THE GINGERBREAD MAN. Following in the footsteps of a MTWI classic, "Face the Cookie."

Attempt 1 (Josh)... FAIL (TIME OUT, TWO LIVES remaining)

Attempt 2 (Josh)... COMPLETE (:41, $10,000)

LEVEL 5: CHRISTMAS JINGLE. The contestant must arrange eleven water-filled glass in such a way that, when struck in order, play the first line of "Jingle Bells".

Attempt 1 (Lindsey)... FAIL (OUT OF TUNE, ONE LIFE remaining)

Final attempt with 10 second bonus (Lindsey).... COMPLETE (:18, $50,000)

Josh may not get another chance to do this, so he takes out a holiday bonus of his own, takes a knee, and asks Lindsey a VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION... a question to which she answers YES!

LEVEL 6: DECK THE BALLS. Using tubes of gift-wrap, the team must suck three Christmas ornaments and adorn them to a tree.

Only attempt... COMPLETE (:33, $75,000)

This one also has a Holiday Bonus... Hope it's a good one... It IS! An EXTRA LIFE!

LEVEL 7: CADDY STACK. The contestant must stack three golf balls on the table. The stack must remain in place for three consecutive seconds.

Attempt 1 (Josh)... COMPLETE! (:42, $125,000)

LEVEL 8: LOLLIPOP. The contestant must land three nuts onto an upward-facing straw, then land a ping-pong ball on the resulting stack. This must be done THREE times.

Attempt 1 (Josh)... FAIL (TIME OUT, ONE LIFE remaining

Final attempt (Josh)... FAIL (TIME OUT, GAME OVER). But they do leave with $50,000. And Lindsey leaves with a ring.

"Minute to Win It" returns in the new year with new episodes. Until then, may your days be merry and bright!
