The popular “Minute to Win It” halftime challenge was back at Target Center on Wednesday night when the Timberwolves took on the Phoenix Suns.

This time, however, there was a Treasure Island twist to the contests.

The challenge started with the One-Handed Kleenex Grab, where the four contestants had to empty their Kleenex boxes. The last to empty their box would be eliminated. While some used the two finger method, others used the whole hand and one even tried to use both hands. The cheater was eliminated first and the contestants moved on to the second challenge.

The second contest was the Face the Cookie challenge. In the past this challenge has stumped contestants, taking several minutes to complete. B-Wright advised the contestants, “Don’t lean forward. It’s all about the face muscles.” His advice went over well, as the first and second contestant finished the challenge within seconds… possibly setting a new Target Center record.

The final station was the Mummy Challenge, in which the two remaining contestants were set to wrap their entire bodies in toilet paper until it was gone. Contestant number two had trouble getting start and fell behind as contestant number one used his length to wrap the roll around his body.

The second contestant was eliminated, leaving the first contestant to completely dominate all three challenges and take home the Treasure Island Prize Pack!
