For the New York casting call, send an email to Twinsworld1@aol.com with the subject line “Truth.” Include your name, age, location, contact number, photo and why you want to tell the truth. You must be a US Citizen or permanent legal resident of the U.S.
Contestants will be hooked up to a lie detector prior to the show and asked a series of questions. On the show, the contestants are asked 21 of those questions again. If a player answers all 21 honestly, as determined by the polygraph, he or she could walk off with $500,000. If it gets too hard or personal, there will be times they can walk away with the cash they have earned up to that point.
