"Minute to Win It" is hosted by All-American chef and television personality Guy Fieri ("Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives") and features competitors participating in a series of simple, yet nerve-wracking, games that can lead to a $1 million prize.
In each one-hour episode, competitors face 10 challenges that escalate in level of
difficulty using everyday household items. Each game has a one-minute time limit and failure to finish the task on time will eliminate the contestant. At various points throughout the game, the competitor can walk away with the money earned up to that point - but it'll take nerves of steel to complete all 10 tasks to win $1 million.
The competitors, who come from all walks of life, are shown over 60 games prior to the competition and are encouraged to practice these one-of-a-kind challenges at home.
"Minute to Win It" is produced by Universal Media Studios with Friday Television. Craig Plestis, Tim Puntillo (NBC's "Identity"), Mattias Olsson and Jock Millgardh serve as executive producers.
