> Description 
Each show contained two regular contestant rounds. Occasionally (but far less often than sister show What's My Line?, an extra contestant would appear after the guest round. A round was basically a guessing game where a panel tried to ascertain the "secret" held by the contestant. A contestant (often more than one) would enter. The host would introduce the contestant and ask their name. He would then say "OK whisper your secret to me and we'll show it to the folks at home" and then the contestant would lean in and whisper his secret to Moore. When the show first started and up until the middle of 1954, each panelist would have 15 seconds of questioning time. When that finished, the contestant was awarded $10 and 2 times around the panel would end the game. Later on, they merely went once around the panel. The contestant received $20 each time ran out on the panelist for a total of $80. They would also often receive a carton of Winston cigarettes or a supply of whatever product was sponsoring the show at that time. Unlike the big money "quiz shows" which were soon to follow and then become a major scandal, the money and prizes were always secondary by far to the play of the game and the interaction between the panelists.
