"PRIMETIME: WHAT WOULD YOU DO?" - THE SUMMER SLIM DOWN EDITION --
AIRING FRIDAY, JUNE 1 ON ABC
When People See a Situation that Cries Out for Action,
Do They Step in, Back Away or Just Walk on by?
Using hidden cameras, "What Would You Do?" establishes everyday scenarios and then captures people's reactions. Whether people are compelled to act or mind their own business, John Qui�ones reports on their split-second and often surprising decision-making process. "Primetime: What Would You Do?" airs FRIDAY, JUNE 1 (9:01-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.
Friday, June 1 Scenarios Include:
· Teen Bikini Fat: A mother yells at her teenage daughter for wearing a revealing two-piece that she isn't "in-shape enough" to wear. She tells her to work out more and lose some weight before putting that bikini on again. Will anyone say anything? (OAD: 3/18/11)
· Wife Bikini Fat: A husband berates his wife for wearing a bikini too soon after she has given birth to their new baby - telling her she looks fat and needs to lose the extra baby weight before he is willing to be seen with her while she's wearing that. How will bystanders react? And what if it's the man out of shape? (OAD: 11/19/10)
· Gastric Bypass: Dr. Oz joins John Qui�ones to see what will happen when an overweight teenage girl tries to resist her in-shape mom who is urging her to get high-risk gastric bypass surgery. In a twist, what will happen if the girl is trying to convince her mom that she wants the surgery? (OAD: 4/15/11)
· Work-out From Hell: Health clubs and fitness centers around the country are more popular than ever, but they're also a hotbed for bad behavior and lack of respect for others. "WWYD's" hidden cameras look at etiquette at the gym - will anyone speak up when a man monopolizes the equipment, or refuses to clean up his weights, or chats on his cell phone while others wait their turn? And what will happen when the "WWYD" "gym member" enters a gym class late and continues to disrupt the class by talking and laughing. (OAD: 3/11/11)
"Primetime: What Would You Do?" has won awards from the Chicago International Television Festival, and the Avon Foundation's 2006 Voice of Change Award for exposing "injustice and wrongdoing against women and bringing the message of domestic violence to the mainstream."
