M2WI holiday specials start tonight

“Minute to Win It” has become a hit for NBC network, so it was no surprise when NBC pulled together some last minute holiday-themed episodes that will begin airing tonight, Tuesday, December 7, 2010, with more episodes on the 14th and 21st of December.

New episodes give "reindeer games" a whole new meaning?

Guy Fieri taped the Christmas shows on Thursday and Friday, November 18th and 19th. Hollywoodjunket was at the taping and reported that audiences were treated to a fun holiday atmosphere with “Santa Helpers” models, assisting with prizes and cheering-on contestants. Studio audiences walked away with gifts: “Despicable Me” DVD and a Wii “Minute to Win It” game autographed by Guy Fieri.

Contestants played in twos: a girlfriend/boyfriend, best friends and a mother/daughter. Special holiday bonuses included a flat screen television, an extra "life," and ten extra seconds to complete their tasks. The grand prize was increased to $3 million for the holiday shows.

Expect another marriage proposal (the show’s third one), an updated stage with animated lights and new games: "Nice Build" – two players have to stack paper reams into a pyramid without falling; "Maze Craze" – one player must navigate a marble in a maze atop a board. The maze consists of rubber bands and screws. The marble must make its way to the end of the board; "The Rebound" has two players – one hitting the ball to the others clipboard and aiming it into a basket.
