WWYD and the host are always stale since 2009
15 July 2017 | by abalpn-99472See all my reviews

I agree that John Quinones' hidden camera show keeps doing the same scenarios over and over again. The same basic concept like Candid Camera but very dramatic. The show keeps using that same actress, Traci, every time. I know because I would usually see her online or on television. They always do the same scenarios in a public place like a restaurant, store, park, bar, etc. Of course, the same or different actors with overacting and manipulating differences. But the major annoying part is John Quinones himself.

You never know that the scenario was a set up and that you were in a fake intervention with the actors/actresses. In the behind-the-scenes, Quinones controls and manipulates everything for the scenes and hidden cameras. After that, John Quinones walks up to you with that damn smile on his face. His camera crew follows him and he always asks the person why he or she did or did not intervene. He's like hiding in the shadows waiting to come out and greet you. He always does that annoying, nagging voice when he narrates. Especially when he says, "I'm John Quinones and this is What Would You Do?" My expression says, "You have just been manipulated by John Quinones." I'll probably say, "I have been played by John Quinones." The same manipulation that he does over and over again. That's the annoying part with this show.

What I noticed in some episodes is that a few bystanders who would not show their face on camera they would leave quickly before Quinones could talk to them. I remember one female bystander during the dropping money experiment; she picked up the money or check and did not return it to the nearby bank. That was when Quinones asked her a question but the lady angrily confronted him and called him a bitch. I was like, "Did she really say that to him?" I was laughing hysterically. Another one is when I saw the e-cigarette experiment when this lady got into her car and Quinones came by to greet her but she drove away before he could speak a word. I would be with these bystanders by giving them credit to move on or not talk to Quinones at all. If I would see that same actress, Traci, in the public, then I would say, "I've seen you on What Would You Do!!! Nice try, Quinones!!!" Because I know for sure it's Traci.

Anyway, this show has always been stale since 2009 and Quinones is going to do the same scenario in a public place. He'll also do the same thing by coming out and saying to the person that the scenario was just a manipulating social experiment. He does this over and over again. The more Quinones keeps doing it, the more it's going to get stale. I don't think he gets tired from working this stuff.

Here are my two opinions and review about Quinones and the show. (1) I really don't like John Quinones. (2) I don't give a damn about him, his annoying voice or that grinning smile either. My review is that I give his show a one star rating and "B" for boring. Here's what I have to say to John. "Dear John Quinones, your show needs to be kicked off the air for good. I've already lost the show's interest. You're boring me most of all. This show has always been stale from time to time."

When will John Quinones ever stop? The answer is...never. He'll keep doing what he does with the hidden cameras and social experiments. This is my opinion and that's what I have to say about Quinones and the show "What Would You Do?" Period.
