Avoid—Please do not watch this show! ABC has no regard for public lewdness being exposed to our children. The contestants were dressed in very revealing clothing as they made their way through a Swiss town. Second, the show producers punished the contestants for loosing a game by burning all their belongings including family pictures, treasured items, and worst of all-the Bible. The Bible belonged to one of the contestants since she was 13. She stated that it had study notes and the like and such an item was not ment to be burned (amen!) and it was a very cruel act. The show trivializes people's pain and beliefs. One million dollars is not worth watching this show! It does not idealize the mind of Christ or God's love, rather, taking advantage of other people for viewers time. Definantly not family viewing.

Caution—This is an awesome and highly underrated reality TV show. Sadly, the morons at ABC decided to postpone the show while IN THE MIDDLE of the season to either January or March of 2002 (and substituted it with America's Funniest Home Videos). It's a lot less heavy than Survivor, another great reality TV series. Despite my raves about this show, it should not be viewed by anyone younger than 14.

Usually Okay—While the clothes that the contestants wore while walking through the Swiss were rather revealing, I don't believe that this show is immoral in the least. Yes, I do believe that lying is wrong, yet this show's fibs are no worse than playing the board game Balderdash. They do lie, but it's only a game, a contest.
