It's Official - GSN is Bringing Back Minute to Win It with Original Episodes

By February 4, 2013

Follow me on:

GSN officially announced today that they are working on 40 new, original episodes of the popular game show Minute to Win It (though the news had been previously reported before the network actually confirmed). These new episodes are slated to air in "late 2013."

A casting notice has been posted at Reality Wanted which unfortunately specifies that they're looking for potential contestants in Southern California. (If you're in the target area you can also send your details to minutetowinitcasting@gmail.com -- but keep in mind that this time around all contestants will be competing in teams of two, and you'll have to apply as a team. You need to include contact details, a recent photo of both of you, tell them what you'd do with the money if you won, and state why you're the best contestants for the show.)

There's no word yet on whether Guy Fieri will return to host, though it would be terrific if he did. If not, however, I think maybe it's time to see Marco Antonio Regil tackle the game in English.

I think this is a fantastic move for GSN - Minute to Win It does well for them in reruns, and if they do it up right then I can't imagine that this could fail. Let's hope I'm not jinxing anything here.

I wish I still got GSN on my cable this would be enjoyable. Although I think GSN would have more success if instead of ordering 40 half hour episodes they keep everything about the show the same but only make 10 and hype them as special event programming.

A lot of people will roll their eyes if they see that the “Grand Prize” is 10,000 dollars, lol. Consider GSN’s comparatively smaller budget
