Mike Jones, the escort who outed pastor Ted Haggard, has reportedly turned down a half-million dollar offer to appear on FOX’s lowbrow game show Moment of Truth, in which contestants are given lie detector tests and asked to predict the results in front of friends and loved ones on national TV. Considering he’s already failed the test once, Jones says he won’t be doing it.
Laughed Jones: “It would be a ratings bonanza if I went on. But I volunteered to take a polygraph test when my story first broke, and I flunked it, so those things can happen. I’m not going to humiliate myself on national TV. And who needs $500,000 anyway? I could use $1,000.”
