You're On! was a show that took a premise similar to Candid Camera; however, to adopt the format better for a children's game show, this featured youth contestants trying to convince passersby to complete a series of predetermined tasks while unknowingly on camera.


Two kid contestants on a remote location would work together to complete three tasks, each with a common theme. The tasks involved convincing a passerby to do silly things, like kissing a fish or playing hopscotch with one kid riding piggyback on them. The kids had 10 minutes to do this. Performing all three tasks won a prize (such as a Nintendo 64, snowboards, or camping equipment), failing won a smaller prize (usually a gift certificate). The contestants could get anyone to do the first task, but for safety reasons, the second and third tasks had to be done by an adult.

Three games like this were played. The later two games had a feature called the "Runaround", played in the studio. Six people (two from each section of the audience) would be called down. After they saw the three tasks the kids had to perform, they had to guess how many tasks they thought the kids would complete. Getting it right won a prize.

In the first runaround, all six players were kids. In the second, it was three kids and three adults who were somehow related to the kids.

At the end of each show, one of the adult Runaround losers and their kid would be called to the center of the stage. There, Phil and the kid would do gross things to them, such as pouring slime on them, asking them questions with a messy penalty for a wrong answer delivered by the kid, or getting them to stomp on large purple balloons to make "grape juice". The messy things Phil would do to the adults were based on at least one of the tasks from earlier in the show, usually tasks that were not completed.


On the final episode, the tables were turned on Phil. Before Phil could call anyone to the center of the stage, Vivianne & Travis suddenly walked in from backstage. They, along with Phil's own son David, proceeded to slime him with a variety of substances.
