First Look: The Moment of Truth

Would you tell the truth about your darkest secrets if you could win $500,000? That's the central question of Fox's new game show, The Moment of Truth, which premieres in late January. The show asks contestants to answer a series of questions about their lives, from the relatively innocuous ("Do you really care about starving children in Africa?") to the deeply personal ("Have you ever cheated on your spouse?"). Those who make it through all 21 questions without lying go home with $500,000.

The series is based on a Colombian game show that became notorious earlier this year, when a woman admitted to hiring a man to kill her husband — and won $25,000 as a result. Colombian officials quickly stepped in and canceled the show, but it had already become a sensation, even prompting people to buy their own lie detectors. (Fox says its show won't ask about felonies, sticking to things that could be humiliating but not incriminating.)

This concept makes me very uncomfortable, but I've heard so much about it that I'll have to check it out come Jan. 23. What about you? To watch a preview, just

I revel in the fact that i am not PC, and i tend to be too truthful so this show will be a blast to watch.

I'm sure I'll watch at least once. You got me again, FOX. I'm such a sucker.

that looks just awful!!! Why would you want to watch someone humiliate themselves??? I'd be way too uncomfortable to even see this.

jeez... I'm sure I'll watch out of curiosity at least once... but i sure as heck would never go on that show!

When I found out about this show in Colombia I hated the idea and I can't believe that it's actually becoming popular. I don't think people should sell their most private secrets...on national tv!

I wouldn't agree to this show, I don't want anyone knowing all my secrets. Sheesh...

isn't it only humiliating if you HAVE deep and dark secrets? I don't think I'd be ashamed of most of my answers (would you cheat if you knew he'd never know? no. do you care about starving children? yes.) I think this may be one of the VERY few reality/game shows I'll be checking out... It all depends on how they package it - I hate the awkward squirming if drawn out too much, and I hate the new reality 'after this message' timing (which dvr really helps with)... we'll see...

it's an interesting concept. But, I wouldn't want millions of people knowing my secrets

This is incredible. I would have to watch just out of curiosity. I'm not sure if $25,000 would be worth ruining my life for.

it kinda of sounds stupid...i would never go on national tv and say my deep dark secrets. it's kinda of putting yourself on a thin line, but then in the end, you might not get anything back *hence the money!
