MTV's Exposed was a television dating show which ran on MTV. It debuted on January 1, 2007, and was produced by Kallissa Productions and Endemol USA, as a "successor" to the dating show Next.[1][2] The show ended by 2008.[3]

Description[edit]

The premise of the show revolved around lie detection software. The initial dater and a friend introduce themselves, and the friend sits in a recreational vehicle (RV) where they can monitor the date. The date consists of the initial dater simultaneously asking questions of two potential mates, followed by a few individual questions to each of them during the "hot seat" portion of the date.

Everything said by the daters is run through lie detection software. Through an earpiece, the friend in the RV tells the dater if what one says is a lie or the truth. At the end of the date, the dater reveals that the statements made during the date have been run through lie detection software, usually to shocked reactions from the two contestants. Next, the dater asks the two contestants if there is anything they would like to 'come clean' about, giving them a last chance to reveal a lie. Commonly, both daters don't respond to this, though they know they have (usually) both lied.

Then, the dater goes back to the RV to consult with their friend and decide which of the two competitors to pick. The dater then returns and confronts the two daters, exposing one (or multiple, occasionally) of their most notable lies, before revealing which one they chose.

At the end of each episode, a disclaimer is shown that reads "The Voice Stress Analyzer is used for entertainment purposes only. It is not operated by a trained professional or under conditions that would provide a reliable means of lie detection. No representations are made regarding the accuracy of any results."[3] Some believed the show to be fake, as contestants from the dating show "Next" also appeared on Exposed.[citation needed]

Reception[edit]

The show did not attain critical acclaim, with one early review calling it an "abomination."[4]
