"The Moment of Truth"
Fox Network unveils it's newest show, "The Moment of Truth" today! I'm a reality TV show queen (looking forward to the newest editions of "Making the Band" and the "Real World vrs Road Rules challenge") and this show with it's money making twist seems like it's gonna be a winner.
Is honesty really the best policy? Basically "Moment of Truth" takes a person and asks them 21 challenging, anything is game, questions and the person has to answer truthfully. The reason why that is such a twist is because the person is hooked up to lie detecting software. So your honesty is rewarded with money by way of $500,000, but at what cost??
Questions are like: "Do you really care about the starving children in Africa?", "If your spouse never would find out, would you cheat on them?", "Do you think your marriage will last another 5 years?", "Have you ever been involved in a criminal act?", "Have you ever stole from your job",...stuff like that, in front of an audience, millions of viewers at home, co-workers, but even worse your loved ones! So is telling the truth, things you may only think about, really work half a million dollars? What if you loose those closest to you by reveling your secret thoughts? Some say, "I can buy new people!". I say, naaaaaaaaah. It reminds me of a scripture in the Bible, "What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?", Mark 8:36. Is money worth possibly losing things that money can't buy. I'm a blunt person, but even to me some thoughts should remain private, especially if you don't act on them. We all think some crazy ill thing one time or another...just let it die in your mind and hope it stays away. Now I'm sure some may argue that one could get over being that overly honest later down the road, but to me, why even go through that headache??! Still as crazy as it may be, I will watch the show to see what brave suckers will go for it! Or maybe we are the suckers for not airing our dirty laundry and getting PAID because we decide to keep the peace! Again...naaaaaaaaaah!
Watch it tonight on FOX at 9 p.m. EST!
