Unbeknown, that they are on a prank show, they go along with it. Soon, the workers will arrive to their destination to start work. When working, the workers will be asked to tape and document everything they find. The new comer will briefly get schooled on what their job functions consist of. When they start work, strange things will slowly start to happen to the work area. At first, the weird things can be explained. But as they continue on, the strange things will start to escalate, and become very unexplainable. This show will scare the contestants on national television. They will get scared by people who dress up like aliens, big spiders that will come out of the walls and drop from ceilings, people will die and come back to life, and unexplainable animals will try to attack them. Contestants are sometimes tricked into thinking cloning and military secrets are being uncovered. When the joke can not go any further, the cast, and the person who set them up, will jump out. When they jump out, they will now know they are being tricked.
