'Jackass' Stars to Compete for Charity on 'Minute to Win It'
They’ve taken shots to the nuts and been launched into the air inside a port-a-potty, but this Wednesday “Jackass” stars Steve-O and Ryan Dunn will take on a whole new set of challenges. And this time, it won’t just be for laughs (or hurling up breakfast, in some cases)…it’ll be for charity.
Steve-O and Dunn are set to compete on the NBC game show “Minute to Win It” to start the show’s 2011 summer season. Just as all other contestants do, the “Jackass” guys will have to complete an increasingly difficult set of tasks within a short amount of time (say, one minute perhaps?) in order to move on to the next round. Tasks on previous episodes of the show have included blowing cards off the top of a deck one at a time without disrupting the stack, or using a pencil, a paper clip, and one’s mouth to pick up a set of keys lying on the table.
With each round that Steve-O and Dunn clear, they’ll earn more money. But in this special edition of the show, the money they win will go toward two charities: the National Down Syndrome Congress and The Teammates for Kids Foundation. It’s surprising that Steve-O didn’t go for an animal charity considering all the animal rights passion he’s displayed in the past, but these two charities are great choices.
To see Steve-O and Dunn do some strange things for a good cause (for once), tune in to “Minute to Win It” on Wednesday, June 8th at 8:00pm ET. Good luck, Jackasses!
