I have quickly become a fan of the new game show Identity. I've watched all but one episode that has aired this week. For those that haven't seen it, the show has the contestent look at 12 different people, and try and guess their occupation or some general fact about them. The contestent must figure out their Identity just by their looks. Some are very obbious and easy to start, but others really make you think about your choices, like when Boxer is one of the identities, don't assume that a man is the boxer. Has anyone else seen this show? What do you think?

Yes, I've watched every episode. I couldn't believe the guy didn't recognize Bruce Jenner! I really don't like the host and I think there are way too many commercial breaks. If the show comes back I hope they change hosts.

I don't know, I kinda like Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller as the host. I think the show needs something other than a normal game show host. It seems comics are getting a lot of these types of roles. Howie Mandel, Bob Saget, and now Penn Jillette (who's a comic magician).

I have recently started watching the show as well and have become a fan quickly. As I watch more of the show, I am trying to determine whether the producers intend the winners in this show to be educated, knowledgeable of other cultures, and observant... or whether the producers want people to just get lucky. Sometimes, for example, they will take a relatively good looking woman who happens to be a librarian or construction worker and place her in a nice dress, fix-up her hair/makeup, etc., and try to throw the player off by misrepresenting the person's identity. I that sort of 'trickery' is fine and is a necessary component of the game, because a smart player should be looking at the entire package to help determine the person's identity. What do you think?

I've seen two episodes and couldnt stop watching. Some are easy to identify (mall santa, new kid on the block, "tabitha") but some really make you wonder who would really be what. Looks can be decieving.
