M2WI on Wii, "Tailgate Warriors" premiere, interviews and People's Choice

Screen shots of the new Minute to Win It video game have been released. We've been following the development of the game for several months.

On 7/19/10 Mathew Trogner wrote, "Another killer session with Guy Fieri at Zone Recording (Sonoma County, CA) today. We recorded all of Guy's phrases for the upcoming Wii game based on his hit television show, Minute to Win It on NBC."

Video game publisher Zoo Entertainment, Inc (NASDAQ: ZOOG) announced that Minute to Win It, based on NBC’s hit game show sensation, will be available in November 2010 for the Nintendo WiiTM and DS systems. Led by All-American chef and TV personality Guy Fieri, who provides voiceovers for the title, players will tackle unique challenges and compete to win the (virtual) grand prize of $1,000,000. Minute to Win It is licensed through NBC Universal Television Consumer Products Group.

Craig Plestis, Executive Producer of Minute to Win It said, "This show has not only caught on across America but has been voted ‘The Best Game Show in the World’ in Cannes. We are looking forward to this Wii game becoming a hit in America, as well as around the world."

Players compete in a series of simple, yet nerve-wracking 60-second challenges with household objects for a shot to win each round. As the money increases, so does the level of difficulty, with 36 fun and exciting challenges randomly selected to create each 10-round battle. The Wii version is compatible with the Wii Balance Board.

Minute to Win It has open casting calls in Norman OK, Columbus OH, Santa Maria CA and Philadelphia, PA in October, 2010. Click here for more information.


The new, 4-part series, Tailgate Warriors, premiered this week. Listen Guy Fieri on WIFC 95.5, located in Wausau, WI, at 8:30 AM local time on Friday, October 10, 2010.

"TAILGATE WARRIORS WITH GUY FIERI": Tailgating becomes the main event with the kick-off of this special four-episode series on Food Network. Guy Fieri throws down the gauntlet to two tailgating teams in search of the best grub at the game. Shot on-location at NFL stadiums around the country, the competitors represent their hometown football team and will create two appetizers, one entrée, two sides and one dessert. Teams will be judged by a rotating three-person panel and scored on taste, creativity, difficulty and presentation.

"Tailgate Warriors" will culminate in a championship battle airing in January, 2011. Click here to listen live.
