Related: WHAT WOULD YOU DO, ABC

When you think no one is watching... what would you do? This week the popular ABC News series "What Would You Do?" features two all-new scenarios with comedian and "WWYD" fan Howie Mandel, one of which plays off of Mandel's well-documented fear of germs.

Using hidden cameras, "What Would You Do?" establishes everyday scenarios and then captures people's reactions. Whether people are compelled to act or mind their own business, John Qui–ones reports on their split-second and often surprising decision-making process. "What Would You Do?" airs FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5 (9:01-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Friday, October 5 scenarios include:

Germaphobia: A lady suffering from mysophobia (fear of germs) walks into a grocery store and is too afraid to touch the shopping carts or baskets. Instead, she opts to try to carry all of her groceries to the front in her arms. As she nears the front register, it all drops to the floor, triggering an anxiety attack. She moves to pick it all up, but is unable to out of fear of the "contaminated" items. When a manager (Howie Mandel in disguise) shows up and asks what happened, she tries to explain her condition. He rolls his eyes and says they just cleaned the floor that morning, then physically tries to hand her a basket. Will anyone stand up and defend her?

Healthier Options: A customer walks up to a cashier at a grocery store and places items on the checkout counter. But as the cashier (Howie Mandel in disguise) starts ringing up the items, he starts recommending different, healthier options. As the health-conscious preaching goes on and on, will anyone stand up for their right to eat unhealthily?

Breastfeeding Tot: Breastfeeding in public is controversial, but even more controversial is the subject of the age at which breastfeeding should cease. So what would you do if you saw a mother publicly breastfeeding her toddler?

The Cool Dad: At a liquor store, a father is buying his teenage son alcohol for a party with his friends. Will anyone confront the dad or tell the store manager?

Pickpocket Family: What would you do if you saw a mother and her young children operating as pickpockets in a busy grocery store, stealing from purses left momentarily on shopping carts?

"What Would You Do?" has won awards from the Chicago International Television Festival, and the Avon Foundation's 2006 Voice of Change Award for exposing "injustice and wrongdoing against women and bringing the message of domestic violence to the mainstream." David Sloan is the executive producer and Danielle Rossen is the senior broadcast producer of "What Would You Do?"
