Premieres Tuesday 04 July at 9.00pm on Seven.
Host Darren McMullen presents a mix of quick-fire Q&A buzzer rounds, break out experiments and hidden camera stunts to a rotating line-up of six celebrity panellists. They compete to reveal the hilarious, shocking and fascinating facts behind why we do the things we do, buy the things we
buy and love the people we love.
Behave Yourself is a format designed to be enjoyed by people from all walks of life. With its relatable subject matter, everyone can play along at home with family and friends while shouting answers at the TV - just like the live studio audience.
Behave Yourself is built on the findings from the bestselling novel ‘Irrational Behaviour’ by New York based
Dan Ariely (whose Ted Talks have been watched over 7.8 million times), a behavioural economist who has
become engrossed with the idea that we repeatedly and predictably make the wrong decisions in many
aspects of our lives.
THIS OR THAT
Guests are given one fact with two possible answers. The team that buzzes in first gets to answer. Occasionally Darren will invite teams to partake in a live experiment in front of the audience to help them better understand the psychology. Panellists might find themselves smelling twins, doing a puzzle on an exercise bike or testing their strength while staring at a picture of their mum.
There are a lot of famous psychological tests done on children. These are not only informative, but extremely cute. For this segment, Darren has conducted some of these experiments on some very junior participants. For example, he gives the children a marshmallow and says if they can resist eating it while he is out of the room, he will give them two once he returns. Our panellists must predict the outcome of the experiment.
We dig deep into the secret hang-ups of our panel to find out what little quirks they have kept out of the public eye. Each team is presented with a hang-up and must determine which of their competition has that hang-up. For example, who has a pair of lucky knickers, who must lift their feet up when they go over train tracks and who bailed on a first date after they accidentally blocked the toilet? This is the time for our guests to share their innermost quirks.
READY STAT GO
A quick-fire buzzer round to end the show. Darren reads out a statistic with one missing piece. Panellists buzz in to answer. When we say answer, most of the time they just get it hilariously wrong.
For example – one third of people who get tattoos eventually do what? No Lawrence, it’s not sit next to you on a train. The correct answer is regret them.
IT’S BEHIND YOU
The team is tested on their ability to spot a lie. One of their opponents stands opposite them and describes a scene behind them – it could be Ella Hooper in a chicken costume, Lawrence Mooney in spandex or Sam Frost in a suit of armour. The opponent could tell the truth about that scene or lie – it’s up to the team to decipher fact from fiction by analysing the opponent’s body language.
FAKE IT ‘TIL YOU MAKE IT
One team must read the body language of the rest of the panel who have large goldfish bowls
lowered over their heads that are filled with a variety of smells. One of those smells is the worst smell in the world. The four panellists inside the fish bowls must attempt to keep a straight face, while the team playing try to work out who is receiving the foul smell.
