Actor and magician Alexis Conran has made a nice career for himself in the UK by schooling audiences on the art of the hustle. With this series, he makes his way to the U.S. to indulge in some good ol’ American tom-foolery and jiggery-pokery. Specifically, he finds willing participants to accept what are known as proposition bets  – crazy dares that seem impossible to carry off to the unsuspecting individual but that each contain a secret move or tactic that, when carried out with a little confidence, result in a winning bet.
