Popular television personality and host Marco Antonio Regil has been named the host of MundoFox’s upcoming game show Minuto Para Ganar, the Spanish-American version of the popular game Minute to Win It. The series will play Monday through Friday. Each team has a chance to win up to $100,000 by playing up to ten seemingly simple games using household items. This is the first time the Minute to Win It format will be seen in America since September 2011.
