Announces The Moment of Truth to Premiere January 23 12/8/07
How would you answer these questions?:
“Do you find any of your spouse’s friends attractive?”
“Have you ever lied to get a job?”
THE MOMENT OF TRUTH premiering after “AMERICAN
IDOL” on Wednesday, Jan. 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
THE MOMENT OF TRUTH will put participants to the test – the lie
detector test – to reveal whether or not they are telling the truth for
a chance to win half a million dollars.
On THE MOMENT OF TRUTH, the challenge is simple – answer 21
increasingly personal questions honestly, as determined by a polygraph,
and win up to $500,000. This is the only game show where participants know
both the questions and the answers before they begin to play. Prior to
playing, participants are strapped to a lie detector and asked a series of
questions by a polygraph expert, who records their answers. At any time,
between the polygraph and the televised game, participants can change
their answers or walk away from the competition.
To win $500,000 participants have to tell the truth. Of course, the
questions are easier when the stakes are low – but as the prize amount
increases, they will be challenged to fess up to matters they might
normally lie about. The touchier questions could be especially revealing
because participants reveal their answers in front of spouses, relatives
and friends, hanging on every word. What deep dark secret will someone
divulge for hundreds of thousands of dollars?
Have you ever lied to get a job? Do you find any of your spouse’s
friends attractive? Do you like your mother-in-law? Have you ever stolen
anything from work? Would you cheat on your spouse if you knew you could
get away with it?
THE MOMENT OF TRUTH is being produced in 23 other countries, including Spain,
France, Italy and the United Kingdom.
