$25 MILLION-DOLLAR HOAX --(9:30PM-11:00PM) --(TV-PG)
"Episode No.3 - Finale"
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY -- "$25 Million Dollar Hoax" is NBC's newest one-hour unscripted series about Chrissy, a daughter who plays a "practical hoax" on her family by convincing them she has won the lottery and changed from a level-headed, sweet girl to a selfish spend-a-holic. In this finale, Chrissy must confront her family and confess that her story has been one outrageous hoax. As her family watches with trepidation as she spins the big wheel, the truth about the money is finally revealed -- and the question is: Will Chrissy's loved ones be able to forgive her when she is forced to tell them that her story has been one big lie? More importantly, has playing this practical hoax been worth it or has she permanently lost the trust of her family? Veteran prize-presenter Ed McMahon ("Star Search," "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson") and George Gray ("The Weakest Link") help continue the ruse.
