TV show description:
Hosted by Howie Mandel, this hidden-camera TV show puts a new spin on the “flash mob” concept. Mandel and hundreds of strangers help special guests plan extraordinary surprises for their friends, family members, loved ones, or co-workers.
The unknowing participants are shocked and stunned by surprise performances by sometimes hundreds of strangers that lead up to very personal reveals. Examples include a husband learning that his wife is pregnant, an applicant finding out that she got the job, and a marriage proposal.
Guests are shown prepping for the event — rehearsing their routines and refining their speeches — all while receiving guidance from Mandel. Then, on the day of the big event — with the hidden cameras rolling — the detailed plan comes to fruition and suddenly explodes into a song-and-dance spectacle they are sure never to forget.
What begins as a few dancers evolves into a grand-scale performance that wraps up with a life-changing announcement for the participants.
This TV series has not ended yet.
