Episode 1 - December 18

The world is governed by identity. You have first identity, true identity, identity theft, identity crisis... and now "Identity", a game show that asks what can you tell about a person simply by looking at them?

The game is simple... Match 12 strangers with their identities. Doing so results in a payoff of $500,000. The more identities you match, the more you win...

$ 500,000
$ 250,000
$ 150,000
$ 100,000
$  75,000
$  50,000
$  25,000
$  15,000
$  10,000
$   5,000
$   1,000

First player is HERB IRVINE from Boston. Herb is a private investigator, so he should be right at home. It's time to meet the strangers.

For game 1: One collects orchids, one has a size 15 shoe, one can drive a tractor, one loves her bike, one tries to fish at least twice a month, one grew up in Buenos Aires, one is bossy, one has an IQ of over 150, one can be nice when he wants to be, and one is "quirky". The 12 identities...

CELEBRITY HAIR BRAIDER 7 MONTHS PREGNANT
NUCLEAR PHYSICIST BURLESQUE DANCER
UFOLOGIST JOCKEY
MR. MOVIEFONE RABBI
SCIENTOLOGIST HAD HEART TRANSPLANT
SHARK ATTACK VICTIM PRO VOLLEYBALL PLAYER

Herb's first... Is #4 a rabbi? Herb seals his guess in. "Mazel tov. I am a rabbi."

Next, #2... a burlesque dancer? Carolina... are you a burlesque dancer? "Well, I'm not going to tease you any longer. I am the burlesque dancer."

By the way, it's going to get harder, so Herb will have three helps available to him, "Mistaken Identity" (miss one, stay in the game), "Tri-Dentity" (narrow any gallery member to three identities), and "Experts" (a panel of experts will assist you).

Next, Herb tries to identify the jockey... #3? "Good things come in small packages!"

Next, Herb tries to see who's 7 months pregnant. He goes with #8. ... "It's a girl."

On the sidelines to help are his friends Jeff and Glossi. Herb thinks a lot of things, but eventually, he ends up locking in #12 as the celebrity hair braider. ..."I AM the celebrity hair braider." She's braided for Li'l Romeo and Snoop Dogg.

Seven identities left. He goes with the pro volleyball player. He locks in #6... Is Suzanne the pro volleyball player? "Point for you, Herb." Herb is halfway to $500,000!

The friends want to go #1, Mr. Moviefone. Herb goes with that... Is that your identity? "No." DUDE! The Mistaken Identity is now out of play. At this point, Herb can walk with $50,000 or play on. He plays on. Thinking that #11 and #7 stick out, he goes to the experts - a body language expert, a psychologist, and an FBI agent - to figure out who the Scientologist is. Mark thinks it's #10. Dr. Deborah thinks #1, maybe #10. Christopher thinks #1. We'll go back to the Scientologist later, but right now, he locks in #7 with Shark Attack Victim.  She reveals her scar.... and $75,000! But now, all he has is a Tri-Dentity. Will Herb play on?

He goes for it, using his Tri-Dentity on nuclear physicist.... 9, 10, or 11. Herb can still bail out. ... and he does. Herb Irvine wins $75,000. The rest of the identities...

1 - Had heart transplant
5 - "Hello, and welcome to Moviefone!"
9 - Nuclear physicist
10 - Scientologist
11 - "May the power of the cosmos be with you!"

Again, Herb, $75,000...

Next up, ANDREA BROWN from Atlanta. Andrea works in real estate. In her gallery.... someone with a leather jacket fetish, someone who can't survive without coffee, a black belt in tae kwon do, a bungee-jumper at 55, a hamster owner, someone with anger issues, and an owner of 87 beanie babies. The identities...

SUMO WRESTLER IRS AGENT
BOUNTY HUNTER PRO BULLRIDER
PAINTER MAJOR LEAGUE UMPIRE
BALLET DANCER TERMITE INSPECTOR
SKYDIVER RETIRED ENGLISH PROFESSOR
BATON TWIRLER ACADEMY AWARDTM WINNER

A little hint... the coffee junkie.. Eve Plumb, aka Jan Brady.

For $1000, Andrea locks in #9 as the sumo wrestler.... "HAI! I am a sumo wrestler!"

For $5000, Andrea tries the English professor... She seals #11. "You just passed the test."

For $10,000, Andrea goes for the bullrider... is it lovely #7? "Ride'em cowgirl!"

For $15,000, Andrea tries the bounty hunter next... How about #1? "Put your hands where I can see'em!"

We're seven away from half a million. Andrea brought along Candice, Daio, and Terea to help her out. They all say Academy Award winner, #2 (C-Note: That would be Eve, BTW). The choice is locked... "No, I am not an Academy Award winner." That's her one and only mistake. At this point, she can walk with $15,000. But she won't. She will use the Tri-Dentity for Ballet Dancer... 2, 3, or 4. The friends go with 3... Andrea goes with #3. For $25,000... a ballet pose!

It's between #6 and #8 as an umpire. Andrea goes with #8... For $50,000 or nothing...  Is #8, Brian, an umpire? "You're safe." She's got $50,000. The friends want her to stop at that. Andrea... will. She wins $50,000. The rest of the identities...

2 - Eve's a painter
4 - Skydiver
5 - Baton twirler
6 - IRS agent
10 - Termite inspector
12 - Academy Award winner (best makeup on "Chronicles of Narnia")

More strangers and more money tomorrow. Until then... Don't be a stranger!
