The income equality gap is getting wider and nothing seems to be slowing down the societal tectonic plates that keep making it harder and harder to cross. So in tough times like this you should turn to the last true American way to earn your fortune: winning a game show!

The 100,000 Pyramid is back on TV with host Michael Strahan, and it’s casting in NYC next week. On the show, now in its second season, you get paired up with celebrities to put your word association skills to the test and win money. Yeah, we know you’re still holding out for your shot at The Price is Right, but this beats that Chris Hardwick oversized-Plinko show at least. Auditions are being held in NYC on Feb. 7 and 8. Find out how to apply below.

Casting will be held at ABC Studios, 77 W. 66th St. in Manhattan on Feb. 7-8. The show is looking “to find people who are ready to have fun, exercise their minds, and potentially walk away big winners,” and is searching “for the nation’s most competitive, upbeat and dynamic personalities to expertly play the classic game of Pyramid where you and a celebrity will team up in a quest to test your word association skills to win big money and prizes!”

According to the website, that means the opportunity to win up to $150,000 plus a luxury vacation. Sadly that’s still probably enough to become one of those super-rich doomsday preppers, but it would pay off your student loans, at least.
