Minute to Win It - Games - Hangover

Blueprint Description[]

There are over eight billion wire coat hangers in use around the world. In this challenge, the contestant will focus on only six of them, as they attempt to form a balanced chain, by hanging one to the other, to the other, and so on. Precise placement of each is crucial. A hanger positioned even millimeters off could upset the delicate balance, causing a catastrophic chain reaction.
