ABC Primetime’s “What Would You Do?” hosted by John Quinones recently spent four days filming at Las Vegas’ Hash House A Go Go restaurant.
The crew arrived on Feb. 1 with two RVs and a truck full of sound, lighting and surveillance equipment. They worked through the night on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday installing hidden cameras and microphones throughout the restaurant. Wednesday through Saturday the crew secretly filmed two different scenarios, catching the reactions of Hash House A Go Go customers on camera.
The first and most controversial of the two scenarios involved a polygamist family dining in the restaurant. The family consisted of actors portraying a man and his four wives dressed in full 19th century-style clothing and hairstyles. The newest member of the family was a 15 year-old wife who discussed loudly about being forced to join the family at such a young age. Several customers reacted to the situation, making for some great television. The second scenario involved an actor portraying a “way too friendly customer.” The actor interacted with actual customers making friends and sometimes enemies, sharing food and even getting some of the other customers to pay his bill.
