Money From Strangers was a hidden camera game show on MTV that aired from April to September in 2012. The show was hosted by comedian Jeff Dye, with Jon Gabrus and Streeter Seidell serving as recurring guests. The premise of the show was simple: unsuspecting strangers on the street were asked to perform a variety of outrageous and often embarrassing tasks, with the promise of winning money if they completed the task to the show's satisfaction. The tasks ranged from singing embarrassing songs on the street corner to pretending to be a celebrity's personal assistant for a day.

The show drew inspiration from classic hidden camera shows like Candid Camera and Punk'd, but with a unique twist: the contestants were vying for real money, with the chance to win up to $1,000 for completing a single task. In order to win the money, the contestants had to impress the show's judges, who would watch the performance from a nearby van and decide whether or not the task had been completed successfully.

One of the most entertaining aspects of Money From Strangers was the wide variety of tasks that the contestants were asked to perform. Some tasks were relatively tame, such as asking strangers to hold up a sign with a nonsensical message or to wear an embarrassing outfit on the street. Other tasks were more challenging, such as convincing a complete stranger to let them crash on their couch for the night or pretending to be an eccentric millionaire looking to buy a luxury car.

In addition to the main contestants, the show often featured appearances from well-known comedians as surprise guest judges. These guests included Aziz Ansari, Ilana Glazer, and Chris Hardwick, among others. The addition of these comedians added an extra layer of humor to the show, as they would often make sarcastic or snarky comments about the contestants' performances.

Overall, Money From Strangers was a fun and entertaining show that provided a unique twist on the classic hidden camera format. While some of the tasks were predictable and some of the humor was juvenile, the show's quick pace and high-energy performances kept viewers engaged and entertained throughout each episode. While the show only ran for one season, it remains a cult favorite among fans of hidden camera comedy to this day.

Money From Strangers is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (24 episodes). The series first aired on April 30, 2012.
