NBC'S 'MINUTE TO WIN IT' UNVEILS NEW 'MILLION DOLLAR MISSION' FOR ORIGINAL SUMMER EPISODES BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, JULY 7

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - June 30, 2010 - NBC's popular competition show "Minute to Win It," will unveil the new "Million Dollar Mission" when it returns this summer beginning Wednesday, July 7 (8-9 p.m. ET). In the new episodes, one lucky audience member will be able to participate in the "Million Dollar Mission," and be able to bypass levels 1 through 9 and immediately compete at level 10 for $1million. The million-dollar game is "Supercoin," where in a minute's time a contestant must bounce coins off of a table and into the narrow opening of a five-gallon water jug 15 feet away.

These new episodes will also feature a variety of competitors including; twin sisters who'll take turns competing at each level; a married couple that will compete for cash for their dream wedding; and a mom and recent graduate who will team up together for the big prize.

Some of the exciting games played in the upcoming episodes include: "Candelier," in which the contestant must stack five levels of cans, starting with one can on the bottom and finishing with five cans on the top, with a paper plate in between each level; "Octopus," in which they must remove a ribbon from an upside-down Fiji bottle -- without knocking the bottle over; and "Tweeze Me," where the contestant must use a tweezer to maneuver a Tic Tac breath mint through the spaces in a tennis racket -- and land it in a cup on the other side.

These episodes will be immediately followed by original episodes of the summer's #1 series "America's Got Talent" (9-11 p.m. ET).

"Minute to Win It," hosted by All-American chef and television personality Guy Fieri ("Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives"), 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 several 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.

NBC.com hosts the official show website and includes fun play at home games, full episodes and more. For a preview of the upcoming summer episodes visit: http://www.nbc.com/minute-to-win-it/video/summerpreview-2/1234874/
