Shocking twist on "Moment of Truth"

Fox's "The Moment of Truth" ran for 23 episodes back in 2008 and might hold the title for most repugnant game show in television history.

Hosted by Mark L. Walberg, "The Moment of Truth" featured contestants who are hooked up to a lie detector machine and are made to answer questions so personal, embarrassing and repulsive, that the audience felt like they needed a cold shower after watching it. Contestants who were able to answer 21 questions truthfully won the jackpot of $500,000.

In this clip from the show's seventh episode, Michael Greenland, a 32-year-old husband, father and carpenter won $100,000 after he admitted he's sexually attracted to his wife's sisters, confessed that he slept with his friends' wives, and copped to saying his wife isn't the most attractive woman he's ever dated. It's gut-wrenching to watch his wife's reactions after hearing each of his deeply hurtful confessions, but by the end of the show they appear to be working through the pain.

"Michael and his wife are going through a period of healing after uncovering some extremely difficult wounds in their marriage," says the announcer in a voice over, before revealing Michael's surprising plans for his prize money.

You have to watch the clip to find out -- but trust us, it's worth it.
