Figure It Out Returns to Nickelodeon
Nickelodeon is bringing back the ’90s game show, Figure It Out, with an all-new 2012 edition debuting June 11th at 7pm. Celebrities will be asked to guess kid contestants’ unique talents, with Jeff Sutphen handling the hosting duties. Among the celebs showing up to try and figure things out are cast members from iCarly, Big Time Rush, and Victorious.
“Giving kids a TV platform to showcase their quirky personal talents is core to the fun of Figure it Out,” stated Marjorie Cohn, Nickelodeon’s President of Development and Original Programming. “Combine this with slime and a panel of fiercely competitive Nick stars and you have a game that is uniquely Nickelodeon.”

Every Figure It Out episode features a panel of four stars trying to guess the unique 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 that was made famous in the ‘90s version of Figure It Out is back and better than ever. 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.
