NBC TO AIR SPECIAL 'MINUTE TO WIN IT' EPISODE FEATURING FORMER MISS USA AND MISS UNIVERSE TITLEHOLDERS AS THE LEAD-IN TO 'THE 2010 MISS UNIVERSE PAGEANT' ON MONDAY, AUGUST 23

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - August 3, 2010 - NBC's "Minute To Win It" will air a special episode featuring former Miss USA and Miss Universe titleholders competing against one another on Monday, August 23 (8-9 p.m. ET).

The former Miss USA and Miss Universe titleholders will compete against one another in a themed hour named "Last Beauty Standing." Their first challenge is the popular game "Hanky Panky," where using only one hand the contestant must pull all of the tissues out of a tissue box. In this episode, the contestant that finishes the game last is eliminated. After ten rounds the last remaining beauty queen will win the grand prize for her charity.

Below please find the list of beauty queens and their respective charities.

Chelsea Cooley (Miss USA 2005) - Masters Inn Ministries Inc.

Kristen Dalton (Miss USA 2009) - USO

Shandi Finnessey (Miss USA 2004) - Stray Rescue of St. Louis

Wendy Fitzwilliam (Miss Universe 1998) - Keep A Child Alive

Brook Lee (Miss USA & Miss Universe 1997) - Hawaii Youth Opera Chorus

Shanna Moakler (Miss USA 1995) - Children's Burn Foundation

The "2010 Miss Universe Pageant" will air live (9-11 p.m. ET) on NBC immediately following "Minute To Win It" from Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

"Minute To Win It" airs Wednesdays (8-9 p.m. ET) this summer and is hosted by All-American chef and television personality Guy Fieri ("Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives"). The show 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.

"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. http://www.nbc.com/minute-to-win-it/video/perfect-strangers/1241358/
