TOMORROW ON "ABC's THE LOOKOUT"

"ABC's The Lookout" is a survival guide to the modern consumer jungle, offering a mix of compelling undercover investigations and lively dispatches about how you spend your money. Featuring smart reporting from ABC's powerhouse team of correspondents, "ABC's The Lookout" covers the trends and products that obsess Americans, offering tips along the way about how to maximize value and avoid costly mistakes. "ABC's The Lookout" airs on WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

"ABC's The Lookout" team will do whatever it takes to help you get more for your money. Reports airing on Wednesday, August 21 include:

· The Preacher's Son: Ephren Taylor used the pulpit of some of the country's biggest mega-churches to quote the bible and allegedly take millions of dollars from parishioners. The feds say he needs to pay up. Taylor has dodged the court and our cameras before. But ABC News Correspondent Steve Osunsami and "ABC's The Lookout" track him down in a small town in Kansas. You will not believe how we located him.

· Irresistible Summer Food Treats: Whether at the boardwalk or the state fair, summer treats are everywhere and hard to resist. ABC News Correspondent Paula Faris, with the help of Dave Zinczenko, ABC News' Nutrition and Wellness Editor and author of the best-selling book, Eat This, Not That, look at which treats are the least fattening. Not all junk food is created equal!

· Germs!: Heading out on vacation and worried about germs? "ABC's The Lookout's" "germ team" joins Correspondent Nick Watt and a germaphobic mom and her family on the great American road trip to investigate where an average family encounters the most germs and what dangers they may pose. Will it be the roller coaster handle? The bathroom? The dirty rag cleaning the restaurant table? The kids' hands? The hotel bed cover or remote control? The kids' fun zone? And was their vacation any germier than their home? (OAD: 6/12/13)
