Minute to Win It, NBC's breakout game show of last season, is readying itself for round two with bigger challenges and even a few special guests. The summer schedule will feature a mix of all-new eps and re-runs to accommodate those who are already fans as well as trying and covert some newbies. Oh, and those special guests I mentioned, well, two of them will be on the premiere episode this week.
Yes, NBC is opening the summer season of Minute to Win It by bringing in a couple of Jackasses for contestants...no that's not an insult, the guest stars are Steve-O and Ryan Dunn from the hit MTV show (and subsequent blockbuster films), Jackass. Dunn has always been my favorite "Ass," so I'll probably tune in to watch him get humiliated, bruised, and broken, all while keeping his good-natured attitude. Steve-O's pretty fun, too. Both stars will compete for charity (The Teammates for Kids Foundation and The National Down Syndrome Congress, respectively).
Here's a quick glimpse at their appearance (and someone tell Guy Fieri that sunglasses go on the front of your head).
You can catch the Jackass boys on Minute to Win It on Wednesday, June 8th at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
Show summary from NBC:
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 over 60 games prior to the competition and are encouraged to practice these one-of-a-kind challenges at home.
