“Minute to Win It” game show that aired on NBC for two seasons was recently announced to be picked-up for new episodes by GSN. The network will be filming 40 fresh episodes to air later this year. Needless to say, they need contestants, and they are casting right now!
A recent casting notice was posted to the “craigslist” website stating that “Minute to Win It Game Show Seeking Contestants ASAP!” They are looking for Los Angeles locals, or assuming, those willing to travel to L.A.
The requirements? You need to be “cool under pressure”; “ultra competitive”; and “have nerves of steel.” This time around, there are “10 deceptively simple games that require savvy contestants”. They haven’t announced an exact grand prize amount that contestants are playing for. It only states that there is a “Huge Cash Prize”. Contestants who finish each game in 60 seconds makes them an automatic winner!
It seems, unlike the NBC original “Minute to Win it” where a contestant was given a few chances to complete his or her stunt if they failed it, this particular version sounds like if the contestant messes-up once, they are out! Stating that “failure to finish the task on time will eliminate the contestant.”
To apply, potential players must be: fun, athletic, competitive, and come in a pair. They want “teams of two” that would include married couples, brothers and sisters, fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, best friends, co workers, even exes, and in-laws are all encouraged to apply in teams of two.
You both must be 18 years or older and live in Southern California. The “Minute to Win it” casting team is searching in the locations in Southern California of Simi Valley, North Hollywood, and general Los Angeles areas.
If you believe that you have what it takes to compete inside the “Minute to Win it” 60-second circle, then give the casing department a heads-up. Just email you and your partner’s: name, age, location, and contact info along with a recent picture of you and your partner. Also include: What you would do with the money of you won?
