People say a first impression can last a lifetime, but that doesn't mean a first impression is always accurate. Actor David Alan Grier hosts this comedic game show that puts such preconceptions to the test. Contestants are asked to make snap judgments about strangers, who are seen in on-street interviews. Looks can be deceiving, though, and the subjects aren't always as they seem. That leads to unexpected twists and turns that make things difficult for the contestants. The player who does the best at judging a book by its cover, as the saying goes, can take home the $10,000 grand prize.
