Moment of Truth

The show is finally being aired in India.9:00 pm Tuesday on Star World. And man it is scary. After creating quite a furor in USA the show has now found its way to the Indian television.
The contestants are asked personal questions and they have to say the truth to win money. Now as you go on from one question to another the prize money increases and simultaneously the questions become more and more personal. The moment you answer a question untruthfully you lose the game and all your money. And yes there is a polygraph in use so one can’t escape lying either.

Now let me give you an example of the kind of questions that are asked -
To a guy who has been married for 3 years – “one of the reasons why you haven’t had a child with your wife yet is because you aren’t sure if you want to spend the rest of your life with her”. This question was asked with the wifey sitting right in front of him. Now that is a complete Catch 22 Situation. If he says the truth he is dead but at least rich. If he says a lie, it will anyways be detected.
And imagine the plight of the wife. Yes it surely would have hurt.

Take another – This guy was asked “if he thought he was superior to his friends when looks where concerned”… huh… poor thing… there goes all the narcissism for the rest of his life…

This one is my personal fav – to a physical trainer – “have you touched your female clients more that it was needed”…hehe… I surely hope he won some money as he would have definitely lost his job after that…

Actually there are a lot more which get even more personal. But since mine is a Universal Blog I wont venture into those. Although I have managed to see only 1 episode till now I am sure there are lot more firecrackers in there. Do catch it.
