The reason is very simple. In spite of all the candidness that every man or woman show, most of us have one thing or the other to hide in life, and the questions asked during the show targets on those hidden truths of ours. We say we have nothing to hide, but ultimately find that we are constantly hiding something or the other, even to ourselves.
The show literally strips off the veil that we use to cover the unpleasant truths of life, literally a ‘real eye-opener’. Questions like “Are you still married to your husband for the sake of your children?” would make any one’s lips quiver, especially when the contestant has to answer it in front of his/her family.
It is said that a polygraph test is conducted on the contestants, before the airing of the show, to check his/her responses and reactions to the questions, and will be compared to the ones that they say during the airing of the programme. If the answers don’t match, the contestant loses out and has to leave the show carrying along with him/her the possibility of a big fissures one of the much cherished relationships in life.
I don’t think that an Indian version of this show is going to invite more contestants, as most of the Indians won’t be happy to disclose too much of their personal life. ***
*** Regarding those who concentrate just on the money…. Absolutely no guarantee, as they may agree for to face such questions.
The so called polygraph test that the channel conducts also doesn’t seem foolproof to me.
Altogether, the greed for money is making certain people compromise on their relations, while the whole world enjoys the spicy inside stories of a person’s life.
Well, the participants just don’t do it out of the sincere desire to be honest, right? All for money dude… just money!!!
