NBC‘s game show Minute to Win It has contestants trying seemingly simple games to win the ultimate prize — $1 million. As the New York Times reports, the game show “relies on simple challenges using household staples like beach balls, M&M’s, pantyhose, Hula-Hoops, toothbrushes and toilet paper.”
A story in Monday’s New York Times gives some insight into what might be one of the coolest jobs ever — designing the challenges for the show. “Minute to Win It” is also compared to game shows like Jeopardy, where the viewing audience can play along. In the case of “Minute to Win It,” you just have to have the household staples to try the challenges yourself.
