Game Show Canceled After Woman Admits Murder Plot

Here's a new point for those who like to argue that TV has gone too far: A Colombian game show has been canceled after a woman confessed to hiring someone to murder her husband — and won $25,000 for it.

The woman was competing on a Colombian game show called "Nada Mas Que la Verdad," or "Nothing But the Truth," in which contestants are hooked up to lie detector machines and asked increasingly invasive questions for a chance to win up to $50,000 if they answer truthfully. She admitted she had hired a hit man to kill her husband, adding that the crime was never carried out because her husband was tipped off to the plot and fled.

The show had become a sensation in Colombia, so much so that spinoffs are planned for several countries, including the United States. Fox bought the rights to the show earlier this year and plans to make the stakes even higher, with $500,000 on the line for contestants who answer all 21 questions honestly.

American TV has done some pretty stupid things in its day — see: Darva Conger — but do you think the U.S. version of the show will go this far?

Isn't there a dating show on VH1 that uses lie detector tests? Of course, those always looked silly. The idea of a real show based on that is a little frightening!

There could be alot of problems in the aftermath too, lol. I can imagine some answers will make friends and family upset, you'd have people seeking revenge on the contestants!

That's really crazy. I don't think I would watch that, and I really wouldn't be on that show.

Oh I forgot to say that in that show the contestants had the option to not respond any of the question and retire if they want it to; of course if they did they would only take the money won at that moment and lose any chance to keep playing. ;)

Wow I have watched that show a lot of times, it was really good but sometimes I felt the questions were too risky and personal to actually answer them in front of a studio full of people. I even saw the episode about the english teacher that APNews wrote about. Too bad it was canceled, but I guess it went too far.
