Minute to Win It: Singapore Edition is a Singaporean primetime game show that originally ran on MediaCorp Channel 5 with host Bryan Wong.[1] The show is part of an international franchise, Minute to Win It. Contestants take part in a series of 60-second challenges that use objects that are commonly available around the house. Contestants who managed to complete all 10 challenges will win S$250,000. The first episode airs on Saturday (August 9, 2014), 8:20pm, right after the live telecast of the nation's 49th National Day Parade. Subsequent episodes were telecast on every Wednesday beginning from 13 August 2014 at 8:00pm.

The show sponsors are: Pokka, Wrigley's Eclipse Mints, Hershey's, Burger King and ASA Holidays.



The contestant is presented with the blueprint for the first game (level) and must successfully complete a game within 60 seconds to win the first level (was $1,000 in all versions) and advance to the next level. After successfully completing the fourth and seventh level games, the contestant is guaranteed to leave with no less than the cash award for those levels. If the contestant can complete the final game, the contestant will earn $250,000.

The difficulty of the games progressively increase throughout the show. If time expires or the conditions of the game cannot be fulfilled (such as by the contestant exhausting any allotted attempts or committing a foul), the contestant loses a "life". If the contestant loses all three of their "lives", the game ends and the contestant's winnings drop to the previous milestone they passed.

After successfully completing a game, the contestant can leave with the amount of money already won before seeing the blueprint for the next game. However, once the contestant elects for the game, the contestant cannot leave the show until that game is complete or they have exhausted all three of their "lives".

In episodes featuring teams of two contestants, some games are played by both players, while others are played solo. A player can only make three consecutive attempts at solo games (including re-attempts following losing a life; an intervening team game does not reset this count). After a player makes three attempts, the other player is forced to attempt the next solo game.


Successfully completing a challenge is worth a specific cash prize at each level. Contestants who successfully complete challenge on levels with bolded amounts in the table below are guaranteed to leave with no less than the cash award at that level should they fail any later challenge.

Level Value (Normal Version) Value (Celebrity Version)
1 $1,000 $1,000
2 $2,000 $2,000
3 $3,000 $3,000
4 $5,000 $5,000
5 $10,000 $10,000
6 $15,000 $15,000
7 $25,000 $25,000
8 $50,000 $50,000
9 $100,000 $100,000
10 $250,000 $250,000

Level 3, 5 and 7 are the safety levels for the celebrities who are playing for their charities.
