Billion to One

After marketing it all summer, ABC's Pepsi Play for a Billion sweepstakes takes place Sunday, Sept. 12 at 8 p.m.

The event, which ABC took over from The WB this year, gives one finalist a chance to win $1 billion on national TV. Hosts Damon Wayans and Tom Bergeron will co-host, and Destiny's Child will perform a new song in their first appearance together in nearly two years.

Just like last year, chimpanzee Mr. Moneybags will randomly select a six-digit number to determine the winner out of 200 finalists. If that number matches the number of the final contestant, he or she will win $1 billion.

Pepsi Play for a Billion is executive produced by Michael Davies and his Diplomatic Productions.
