The Big Moment was a primetime series where it features everyday people making preparations for a big task to perform on the show.

PremiseEdit

This program centered on one member of a family (sometimes a group of people) who was given one week to practice a certain task before the show's taping. A video camera was provided to record the rehearsal process at home. At the end of the week, the contestant (and his/her family and other supporters) came to the studio to perform the task, and was given only one attempt. If successful, he/she left with a pre-selected prize package worth $25,000. If unsuccessful, he/she received a $2,000 consolation prize. Two contestants appeared each episode.

Some of the stunts presented:

  • Memorizing pi to the 100th decimal
  • Playing Beethoven's “Für Elise” on a piano, without missing a note
  • Answering ten questions on the movie Ghost
  • Riding around three cones on a unicycle and returning to a starting line
  • Pulling a tablecloth out from a fully-set table without any items hitting the floor or glasses being knocked over (this stunt was featured at least twice).
  • Identifying 12 random flavors of Baskin-Robbins ice cream while blindfolded

Later into the show's run, Sherwood would go into the audience after the first contestant's stunt and randomly select someone to perform a task at the end of the show (after some time to train for the task). Tasks included memorizing other audience members' names and birth months, spontaneously crying within 30 seconds, and breaking into a car on stage within 90 seconds. If successful, he/she won $5,000.
