(Remember, it is better to give than to receive.).

Here’s how it works. The producers are seeking lively teams of three (i.e. friends, family co-workers) to compete. All contestants must be at least 18 years old.  Auditions are being set up in  Los Angeles, Sacramento, Dallas, Chicago, and Atlanta.
