NEW YORK, Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Nickelodeon's popular game show Figure
it Out returns to the network with 30 all-new episodes of unique hidden
talents, celebrity panelists and slime beginning Monday, October 15, at 7p.m.
(ET/PT). Since its 2012 reboot, Figure it Out  ranks as the top program in
its time slot with tweens 9-14 across all TV and averaging 2.1 million total
viewers. Season two will feature celebrity panelists Cody Simpson, Tony Hawk,
Rachel Crow, Metta World, Candace Parker, Noah  Munck and Ariana  Grande as
they try to guess the rare and secret talents of everyday kids. Hosted by
Jeff  Sutphen (BrainSurge),  Figure it Out airs Monday through Friday at 7
p.m. (ET/PT).


"We're excited to bring Figure it Out back for a second season with more
unique talents, hilarious moments and, of course, slime!" said Paula Kaplan,
Executive Vice President, Current Series, Nickelodeon. "Kids love playing
along with the show and seeing their favorite Nick stars and celebrities on a
more personal level."

During summer encores,  Figure it Out hosted a "Watch & Win" sweepstakes,
encouraging viewers to tune-in nightly for the opportunity to secure a unique
code. Once the code was revealed, show fanatics were challenged to log on to for a chance to appear on an upcoming episode this
season, alongside celebrity panelists. Four grand-prize finalists were
selected for this all-expense paid trip of a lifetime.

Every Figure it Out  episode features a panel of four stars trying to guess
the talent or accomplishment of two kid contestants each, through three rounds
of game play, by asking yes or no questions while being bombarded by messy
visual and tactile clues. For every round the panel fails to figure it out,
the contestant wins a prize. If, after three rounds, the panel can't figure
out the kid's unique skill, the contestant takes home the grand prize. Each
game culminates in the reveal of the talent with an in-studio demo.

The slime from the '90s version of  Figure it Out  returned to the network in
June 2012. Each panelist has a chance to be slimed if they perform the
"secret slime" action, which is revealed in round two of the game.
Contestants also have the chance to be honored with a sliming, if the panelist
is able to guess the pre-determined "word of honor," a word that is key to
helping them figure out the contestants' special talent.

Each episode of Figure it Out will be available for streaming on Xbox, Vudu
and, and download on iTunes.

Figure it Out originally aired for four seasons on Nickelodeon from July 1997
to December 1999 and was hosted by Olympic gold medalist swimmer Summer
Sanders. Panelists from the original broadcast included Kenan Thompson, Aaron
Carter, Amanda Bynes, Chris Jericho, Coolio, Jack Hanna, Sherman Helmsley,
Evander Holyfield, Joe Namath, Julius Erving, Michelle Trachtenberg, Mike
O'Malley and Mya, among several others. The series was created by Kevin Kay
and Magda Liolis with Eileen Braun and Liolis currently serving as executive
