Testing times ahead

Mark Walberg hosts, Moment of Truth — Season 2, where contestants are asked 50 increasingly personal and embarrassing questions to receive cash prizes. The show’s first episode managed to rate very well itself with 23 million viewers, the highest rating for a premiere to that point in 2008.

Prior to the show, a contestant is hooked up to a polygraph and asked more than 50 questions; there is no polygraph testing conducted during the actual show. Without knowing the results of the polygraph, he or she is asked 21 of those same questions again on the programme, each becoming more personal in nature.

If the contestant answers honestly, according to the polygraph results, he or she moves on to the next question; however, should a contestant lie in his or her answer or simply refuse to answer a question after it has been asked, the game ends.  Watch this exciting series on Star World at 9 pm.
