Nickelodeon Figure It Out / Figure This Out

Get on Nickelodeon

Now casting contestants and audience members for a new Nickelodeon game show – Get free tickets to a Nickelodeon show and see all the action live or tryout to be on the show!

Figure This Out is a show where kids try to guess what a contestants talents are. Kids with special skills and unique abilities are cast on the show then a panel has to figure out what that talent or ability is by using a series of yes / no questions and some hints that came in the form of an object in the old series.

The Nickelodeon show first aired in 1997 and the show ran 4 seasons until 1999 when it went off the air. Last month Nickelodeon announced that the show is being revived for the 2012 season. Figure It Out is set to film 40 episodes in 2012 and most of that filming will be going on this spring.

We are not sure if Nickelodeon will stick to the old format of the original show or create a whole new one for the new series. Guess we will have to wait and see!

Check out the video for the casting

The original Figure It Out used Nick stars as panel members. The panel was made up of actors from other Nickelodeon shows. If the new show keeps that same format, Nick fans may get to see more of their favorite Nickelodeon stars.

Each episode had two sets of three one-minute rounds, in which the panel took turns asking yes-or-no questions to try to guess the contestant’s talent. Each time a panelist mentioned a word that was part of the phrase that described the secret talent, the word was turned over on Billy the Answer Head, a game board that displayed a puzzle.

Nickelodeon is bringing back an old game show Figure it Out / Figure This Out for the 2012 season and you can get in the live audience! Nickelodeon is casting audience members and tickets for the live taping are free!

  40. James Marcus Serra

    Hi my name is James Serra my talent takes a lot of time.I make solar wood burns. Solar wood burning is when you make a design on a plank of wood and use a magnifying glass lens to permanently burn your designs on it. What I do to change it up is sand down the plank, and even some times pant them so they look better. I think I would be good on figure it out because I want other people to figure out my talent and to stump Nickelodeon actors. I want to get slimed so bad. I hope way down in your heart, you will pick me to be on figure it out. 🙂 P.S i have entered many of my art workings in my county fair and have gotten first.

  41. Andrew Sprague

    Hi, My name is Andrew! I am a friendly kid, and I have a really awesome talent! I can make balloon animals! I can make swords,dogs, octopuses, swans, flowers, hats, giraffes, fishing poles with a fish on the end, and many other creations! In fact, I have made balloons at a day camp, picnic, and at a local pizza parlor called “Ollie and Jax”! I am also involved with academics at my school! I have participated in the spelling bee, speech meet, and math olympics, and have won first place numerous times! I am also very lucky to be able to apply for Figure it Out, because when I was 2 and a half years old I was diagnosed with T-cell Leukemia, a type of cancer. The rigorous treatments and radiation ( a treatment that kills the cancer ), were supposed to make me unable to ever read. But, Here I am, Happy and Healthy! I also talk publicly to organizations about my cancer. I am now a survivor! I would be honored to be featured on your show! I told my friends I wanted to try out for the show, and they said that it would be cool if I did, and that they would watch me if i was featured. I live in Southern California, so the drive to Paramount Studios is no issue. I am 11 years old, and I am going into 6th grade. I used to watch Brainsurge, which was also hosted by Jeff Sutphen. When I first saw the show, I made sure we had all the showings recorded. I think that the show would be a huge honor, for so many reasons! 1: There would be cool Nick stars that I get to compete against!
    2: I could win some AWESOME prizes!
    3: I’d be on TV!
    4: I’d have the chance to get SLIMED!
    5: My talent could be shared, and I would teach the Nick stars and Jeff and the viewers how to make a balloon animal!

  44. Blake McCauley

    My kids name is Blake and he has been begging me to sign him up. So i am going to suprise him if he makes the show. He will not miss a show on TV. He loves the show. He has an arm injury called “Brachial Plexus.” he only has one arm to use. He won a singing championship at the county fair out of about 50-60 people, he is amazingly good at basketball with 1 hand winning the county championship with his ball team. He is very close to breaking the record for most posters in a room, and has won 11 championships on video games 1 handed. He went 38-0 before losing. So he has been begging me to sign him up.He tells me that the kids and the parents get free tickets to get flown out. I think that only the kids get the free tickets and we have to pay. So if he makes the cut he will be amazed and surprised. Hopefully we will be talking soon with my son. Thank you very much for this chance for him.
