This is chronicling the 2006 version of I've Got a Secret. This version was produced by Burt Dubrow Productions. In association with Get Real Entertainment.
A panel of four celebrity guests faced one contestant or a group of contestants. Each contestant that appeared had a weird, fabulous, laughable and/or unusual secret. When the game started after the contestant came out & introduced himself/herself, the contestant whispered the secret into the host's ear, and the home audience was shown the secret. After that, the host would give a clue to the panel concerning the secret; that's when the questioning began. Each panelist one at a time in turn had 40 seconds to asked yes or no questions to the contestant in an attempt to guess the secret (with one conference allowed). The panelist in control would have an unmentioned amount of time to question the contestant. When the time was called by the producers and the panelist in control did not guess the secret, the next panelist in line would do the questioning. The process went on until either the secret was guessed, or until the entire panel questioned the contestant. After the game, the contestant would talk about his/her secret via the host's interview and sometimes a video/movie clip or demonstration would be shown. Stumping the panel earned the contestant $1,000 and a dinner for two in Beverly Hills.
Also on I've Got a Secret, celebrity guests played the game themselves. At the start of each show, the celebrity guest in question would introduce himself/herself followed by saying, "...and I've Got a Secret." The game was pretty much the same as with the regular contestants, but sometimes the panel would be off-stage in preparation of the game. Sometimes the secrets would be a personal secret, or something they were going to do that day.
- The backdrop of the set somehow resembles the original version of Password.
- For this version alone was that all four panelists were "openly gay", but their "secret" was generally referenced in double entendres, such as when Bil Dwyer was introduced as "the straight man to the panel".
An interactive online version where you were allowed to play along with the show was once available thru their website at GSN.com.
