GSN Takes Enhanced Television to an Entirely New Level With the Network's Most Ambitious Interactive Programming Event to Date - 'You Win Live' Airing Sunday, December 12

Television Viewers Will Play Along for an Opportunity to Win Cash and One of 900 Prizes Totaling More Than $30,000

Mario Lopez and Annabelle Gurwitch Serve as On-Air Hosts

Burger King(R) Signs on as Sponsor of Live Event

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 9 -- Maintaining its position as the industry leader in interactivity, GSN, the network for games, will take enhanced television to an entirely new level on Sunday, December 12, giving television viewers the opportunity to play along live with the network's most ambitious interactive programming special yet, YOU WIN LIVE, and compete to win cash or one of 900 prizes totaling more than $30,000. The live event will air from 8-11 p.m. ET / 5-8 p.m. PT and feature episodes of network favorites WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE?, WIN BEN STEIN'S MONEY and WEAKEST LINK. Viewers can participate in the live event via GSN.com

Viewers at home will use their computers to play against each other by answering the questions asked in each featured episode by Mario Lopez ("America's Most Talented Kid") and Annabelle Gurwitch ("The Shaggy Dog"). Burger King(R) will contribute as an interactive sponsor to the event by providing an opportunity for viewers to answer bonus questions pertaining to Burger King(R) commercials airing throughout the live broadcast of the three episodes.

YOU WIN LIVE will consist of three separate games of skill that include all of the questions in the featured programs, as well as questions presented in the live studio segments. Viewers who answer the questions correctly will earn points, and a group with the most points after each game will win cash or a prize. The cash prizes will increase throughout the night beginning with $2,500 in cash for one eligible viewer-player and prizes awarded to the winners of the WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE? game, $5,000 in cash for one eligible viewer-player and prizes awarded to the winners of the WIN BEN STEIN'S MONEY game and $10,000 in cash for one eligible viewer-player and prizes to the winners of the WEAKEST LINK game.

Additionally, the night will feature two "themed" programs -- WIN BEN STEIN'S MONEY where Ben Stein and contestants wear pajamas, and WEAKEST LINK where contestants appear as Anne Robinson look-a-likes.

Throughout the YOU WIN LIVE event, Lopez and Gurwitch will be battling each other and the viewers for the top spot on GSN's live leader board. Separately, viewers will also have an opportunity to decide the outcome of several surprise segments and those viewers who have registered with GSN.com and sent in a photo of themselves will have a chance to talk to the hosts live on television.

Starting today, viewers can pre-register for YOU WIN LIVE by logging onto GSN.com and uploading their photo.
