Apparently this show is a spin off of others from around the world that have been very successful. Get this: Colombia had to cancel its version of the show after a contestant won $25,000 after admitting she had hired a hit man to kill her husband. Sounds like a stellar person to be rewarding with prize money.
We did hear about an episode here in the US where a woman "confessed" she wished she were married to her ex-boyfriend instead of her husband while (gasp!) the husband sat dumbfounded in the audience. Well, turns out these two really had been a couple, but were on the outs way before the show and agreed to do the show for money. So... it was acting. Sean later discovered this same woman lost all of the money she had "won" when she answered "Do you think you are a good person?" with "yes" and the lie detector said she was lying. Haha! Hope the humiliation was worth all that money you made... oh wait, you went home a loser-- same way you came in.
Stepping off the soapbox now.
