TV show description:      
Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, hosts this primetime game show. Competitors move through a series of ten simple minute-long games trying to reach the $1 million prize in the end.

The competitors on this game show participate in the ten quick games that get harder and harder as they go along, increasing in difficulty. If they don’t finish the challenge within the sixty-second time limit, they will be eliminated. At certain points throughout the game, they can choose to walk away and keep the money earned if they decide they just can’t make it to the end.

There are over sixty games designed for this competition, with each using standard household items, as challengers are encouraged to practice at home. Some of these challenges include: Hanky Panky, pulling tissues out of a box one at a time until the box is empty; Egg Roll, moving three eggs across the floor and into a targeted area by fanning them with an empty pizza box; and Bobble Head, moving your head up and down to move the attached pedometer the total number of steps required.
