    Can you spare a minute to win it?

    "Minute to Win It," the NBC game show that awards up to $1 million for completing 60-second challenges with everyday items, is one of two casting calls Saturday in downtown.

    Auditions will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Rock Bottom in the Gaslamp District.

    Jason talks with casting director Tiffany Dejillo to tell you what she is looking for in contestants. The casting call is tomorrow at the Rock Bottom Restaurant in the Gaslamp from 11am to 3pm.

    Among the off-the-wall challenges, a game called "Face the Cookie" requires contestants to roll a cookie from forehead to mouth without using their hands.

    Casting director Tiffany Dejillo said there will also be auditions for a new "trivia-based" show, which is called "Still Standing" and is run by the same producers.

    According to NBC's website, a "Still Standing" contestant is pitted versus 10 competitors, answering head-to-head trivia questions against the clock.

    One wrong answer and the contestant loses all the money to the competitor and falls through a trap door in the floor. If correct, the contestant moves on to the next competitor.
