Storyline

In this clone of "The Newlywed Game," two siblings usually a brother and a sister shared secrets about each other. Host Faso asked the team of brothers a series of questions while their sibling was offstage whisked away in the "isochamber;" the questions' topic was determined by pressing a button. Matching answers were worth points; not matching usually led to fights (much to the delight of the audience). The same process was repeated with the team of brothers herded offstage, and Faso asking the girls a series of questions. The team leading at the end of the second round got to run the "Pick-a-Prize Arcade" for bonus prizes. Each sibling got to run the "Arcade" separately, choosing six prizes from a possible 10 he/she believed his/her sibling chose for them; 10 matches won them every prize on stage. While most shows featured brother-sister teams, others featured sibling teams of the same sex and others had youthful stars of NBC shows playing with their real-life brothers or sisters.

I saw this show on the Family Channel in the early to mid 90's in syndication. I enjoyed it I must say.

It was a good concept and I loved watching the kids argue with each other. Although the budget looked to be almost non existent, they did good with what they had. Does anyone else remember the celebrity episode that had Shannon Doherty on it? It was her and her brother and the host asked her brother if she was going to college. His answer was something like "It's not even an option. She is going to college"! Looks like he was wrong...

I thought the host looked like a creep maybe he was a pedophile and he had a big afro.
