When People See a Situation that Cries Out for Action, Do They Step in, Back Away or Just Walk on by?

When you think no one is watching… what would you do? Using hidden cameras, "What Would You Do?" establishes everyday scenarios and then captures people's reactions. Whether people are compelled to act or mind their own business, John Quiñones reports on their split-second and often surprising decision-making process. "What Would You Do?" airs FRIDAY, JULY 12 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

Friday, July 12 Scenarios Include:

  • Boy Manicure: What would you do if you saw a mom taking her young son for a manicure and someone was criticizing her for doing such a "girlie" activity? What if it was the dad objecting?
  • Drive Thru: What would you do for a fast food freebie? From asking customers to perform jumping jacks to singing your order - how long before this unique drive thru experience forces you to drive off?!
  • Wedding Cake: What would you do if you saw a lesbian couple being denied a wedding cake at a bakery because the owner doesn't believe in gay marriage?
  • Insult Comic: What would you do if you were at a comedy show and one of the comedians was insulting audience members, including two overweight women and an older man with an attractive young Asian woman. (OAD: 10/12/12)

"What Would You Do?" has won awards from the Chicago International Television Festival and the Avon Foundation's 2006 Voice of Change award for exposing "injustice and wrongdoing against women and bringing the message of domestic violence to the mainstream."

David Sloan is senior executive producer and Danielle Rossen is executive producer of "What Would You Do?"
