Guests who have the same name as famous persons, fictional characters, or things, are quizzed by celebrity panelists who try to determine their name. Each panelist has ten questions; if they fail, they have to give the guest a check for a small amount. A famous person also visits with a secret wish that the panelists guess. Written by

When the show first began there were only three people on the panel and the top prize was $75. The panelists who ran out of questions or didn't make the correct guess paid the contestant a check for $25. However, in 1954, the panel expanded to the more familiar four person set up that was used on "What's My Line" and "I've Got a Secret" and the top prize went up to $80 and each panelist who didn't make a correct guess or ran out of questions now paid $20.
