What Would You Do? is an American television news magazine and hidden camera show broadcast on ABC since 2008 as part of the Primetime series. The series is hosted by news correspondent John Quiñones. In the series, actors act out scenes of conflict or illegal activity in public settings while hidden cameras videotape the scene, and the focus is on whether or not bystanders intervene, and how. Variations are also usually included, such as changing the genders, the races or the clothing of the actors performing the scene, to see if bystanders react differently. Quiñones appears at the end to interview the bystanders about their reactions. As the experiment goes on, psychology professors, teachers, or club members watch and discuss the video with Quiñones, explaining and making inferences on the bystanders' reactions.
Scenarios include a nail tech refusing to touch a woman with a noncontagious skin disorder; a boy being peer-pressured into chugging cough syrup at a restaurant; parents publicly blaming their child for their divorce; an emotional breakup; and a baker who put her own spin outlandish on cake orders.
