LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Chef and TV host Guy Fieri is very bad with balls – specifically little red ping pong balls.

Fieri hosts the game show Minute To Win It, returning tomorrow (Jul. 7) to NBC, where everyday folks have 60 seconds to complete kooky tasks using household objects like plastic cups, straws, and toothbrushes.

The emcee insists the seemingly simple challenges are “much harder than they look,” especially anything involving ping pong balls – his personal downfall whenever he tries the games himself.

Because the balls are so light and airy, Fieri can never get them to do what they’re supposed to do.

But that shouldn’t stop anyone from trying.

Fieri thinks the major draw of Minute is that viewers can recreate the games at home on the cheap.

While not everyone can afford the latest board games or Wii games, Fieri figures anyone can spring for a bag of ping pong balls and Solo plastic cups and “have their own mini Olympics at home.”
