"One of these four men/women/people is holding $250. (insert story). This is (insert name) a (insert occupation) from (insert state and capital) he/she is our challenger on One In a Million. And now, here's your host, Danny O'Neill!"
One in a Million (not to be confused with the short-lived 1980s Shirley Hemphill sitcom of the same name) was a short-lived game show where four guests held an unusual secret while the contestants determined which of the stories were true.
Contestants tried to guess which of four guests had a unique story that made him/her "one in a million" (hence the name of the show). Each of the panelists told a story and the contestant determined which of the stories were true. Each correct guess earned the challenger $25 and a clue as to whom the unique story applied to. The contestant won another $250 for identifying the "one in a million" panelist.
Each episode featured two games.
