After being hooked up to a lie detector and asked 50 questions, 21 are chosen. The premise is simple, answer truthfully, win money; 1 false and you loose it all! To help add to the "pressure" some important people are sitting near by and they have a button which can only be used once. Push it if you don't want to hear an answer and to have another question asked. The hook of the whole thing is each question gets progressively more personal.
I only bothered to watch the first one, after that I changed it, not believing I actually bothered to watch it. The first few are silly and fun, "have you ever admired yourself in a mirror?" "did you look at the privates of other players while in the shower" stuff like that. There were some tough questions like "is the reason you're delaying having children because you feel your wife won't be your life partner?" while he answered yes, to me that was a "so what?" answer. People ask themselves that all the time. The question that burned him was "have you ever touched a female client more than necessary?" Hell, if you ever hugged a female client, that was more than necessary!
One of the problems I had with the questions was they were intentionally direct yet vague, see example above. We all have secrets so when you ask a question about it "have you done something to cause your wife not to trust you" you have to answer yes! Doesn't mean you've had an affair or anything but that's what it SOUNDS like. Perception is everything. They don't take circumstances into account so you have to answer in a way that seems inappropriate that may not be if an explanation was given.
As for the host, he's got to go! Howie Mandel makes a boring show like Deal or No Deal interesting. Walberg make something intense uninteresting and trite. Then I came to the ultimate realization: I REALLY don't care what these people answer. I DON'T CARE! And finally, I have to say this: If a STUPID game show like this can ruin a friendship or marriage, it was already ruined.
