Minute to Win It Wiki

Stephen Collier battles the Triple Pong Plop for $10,000.

Blueprint Description[]

In this challenge, the contestant must bounce ping-pong balls along three eleven-inch dinner plates and land a total of three into a fishbowl on the other side. Balls bouncing on the flat part of the plates will move more consistently down the line. Balls landing on the raised edges of the plate, however, will bounce in unpredictable trajectories.


This is a multi-level challenge, having been played at levels 4 and 5, whereas in level 5, two contestants play as a team and must land a total of four balls into the fishbowl.
