The moment of truth. Would you?
September 2, 2008 2:17pm CST
I just watched a game show on aired for the first time tonight. It's called the moment of truth. I'm not really sure exactly how the game is played because I was watching when it was halfway on already. But basically, i think the game involves couples to tell the truth about various-way-above-the-line questions to win money. The questions are like "have you ever cheated on your husband/wife?" or "did you love any other man/woman on the day of marriage?". They have some sort of lying sensor to let the audience know if they are really telling the truth. If they lie then all the money they get from previously answered questions will be gone. My question is would you play this game, aired on television, risking your secrets, possibly ruin your love relationship, just to get money.., say a million dollar?

no i would not play it. you don't know what they will ask. everyone has secrets that they don't want people to know about. you also don't know how your spouse might feel about your answers or react to them. i don't think i have anything to hide but like i said you don't know what they'll ask. i tend to over react to things so i wouldn't want them to either even if they are innocent of all wrong doings. money is not as important as family and happiness.

Hi camomom, you are right. I agree with you. Winning loads of money is not important, it could only affect our family relationship. Even if you have no secrets at all, you may end up making things worst because you don't know what they will ask. Thanks for the response :)

I saw one episode wherein a woman won two hundred thousand dollars and said, "after all i and my family's been through here, i think 200 thousand dollars is enough to help us start all over again." She thinks that money can buy back the trust of her husband. I will not and cannot "hostage" my family's reputation and relationship in exchange for a million dollars. But then, i also figured out that since my life's an open book to my family and friends, then there is nothing to risk. But there are still a lot of tricky questions in the later part of the game which are quite abstract, like "do you consider yourself a good person?" Someone answered "yes" but her answer was false. She lost 500 thousand dollars, and i guess she also lost a husband.

Hi pinktabor, actually that was the episode i watched. It's just devastating. She pushed her self to win money to reveal such secrets that could affect her own family relationship. I guess even if you're open with your family, you have to consider such abstract questions as well. But if you have high confidence then why not give it a try. Thanks for the response :)
