NICKELODEON UNVEILS KIDS' HIDDEN TALENTS WITH THE RETURN OF "FIGURE IT OUT" SEASON TWO, MONDAY, OCTOBER 15, AT 7 P.M. (ET/PT)

Host Jeff Sutphen Challenges Superstars Cody Simpson, Tony Hawk, Rachel Crow, MettaWorld, Candace Parker, Noah Munck, Ariana Grande and More, to Figure Out Kids' Hidden Talents

New York, NY. - Oct. 4, 2012 - Nickelodeon's popular game show Figure it Out returns to the network with 30 all-new episodes of unique hidden talents, celebrity panelists and slime beginning Monday, October 15, at 7p.m. (ET/PT). Since its 2012 reboot, Figure it Out ranks as the top program in its time slot with tweens 9-14 across all TV and averaging 2.1 million total viewers. Season two will feature celebrity panelists Cody Simpson, Tony Hawk, Rachel Crow, Metta World, Candace Parker, Noah Munck and Ariana Grande as they try to guess the rare and secret talents of everyday kids. Hosted by Jeff Sutphen (BrainSurge), Figure it Out airs Monday through Friday at 7 p.m. (ET/PT).

"We're excited to bring Figure it Out back for a second season with more unique talents, hilarious moments and, of course, slime!" said Paula Kaplan, Executive Vice President, Current Series, Nickelodeon. "Kids love playing along with the show and seeing their favorite Nick stars and celebrities on a more personal level."

During summer encores, Figure it Out hosted a "Watch & Win" sweepstakes, encouraging viewers to tune-in nightly for the opportunity to secure a unique code. Once the code was revealed, show fanatics were challenged to log on to www.nick.com/figureitout for a chance to appear on an upcoming episode this season, alongside celebrity panelists. Four grand-prize finalists were selected for this all-expense paid trip of a lifetime.

Every Figure it Out episode features a panel of four stars trying to guess the talent or accomplishment of two kid contestants each, through three rounds of game play, by asking yes or no questions while being bombarded by messy visual and tactile clues. For every round the panel fails to figure it out, the contestant wins a prize. If, after three rounds, the panel can't figure out the kid's unique skill, the contestant takes home the grand prize. Each game culminates in the reveal of the talent with an in-studio demo.

The slime from the '90s version of Figure it Out returned to the network in June 2012. Each panelist has a chance to be slimed if they perform the "secret slime" action, which is revealed in round two of the game. Contestants also have the chance to be honored with a sliming, if the panelist is able to guess the pre-determined "word of honor," a word that is key to helping them figure out the contestants' special talent.

Each episode of Figure it Out will be available for streaming on Xbox, Vudu and Amazon.com, and download on iTunes.

Figure it Out originally aired for four seasons on Nickelodeon from July 1997 to December 1999 and was hosted by Olympic gold medalist swimmer Summer Sanders. Panelists from the original broadcast included Kenan Thompson, Aaron Carter, Amanda Bynes, Chris Jericho, Coolio, Jack Hanna, Sherman Helmsley, Evander Holyfield, Joe Namath, Julius Erving, Michelle Trachtenberg, Mike O'Malley and Mya, among several others. The series was created by Kevin Kay and Magda Liolis with Eileen Braun and Liolis currently serving as executive producers.
