THE HUNT IS ON, AS ABC PREMIERES A NEW EDITION
OF "THE MOLE," MONDAY, JUNE 2
Dubbed television's smartest reality show, "The Mole" returns with all-new missions, locations and music, plus online interactivity, enabling more viewer participation over its 10 episodes, MONDAY, JUNE 2 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Jon Kelley ("Extra," "The National Sports Report," "Baseball Today") is host.
In the premiere, "Episode 501," 12 players meet for the first time in Los Angeles, Chile. Their first mission will have them jumping over the edge of a waterfall, facing their greatest fears, and one player will be left stranded on a deserted beach to fend for himself/herself.
"The Mole," based on the hit Belgian format, is produced by Stone & Company Entertainment and follows a group of players as they try to figure out who among them is The Mole, a saboteur trying to keep them from winning money. Players must decide who they think The Mole is and then learn as much about him or her as they can because, at the end of each one-hour episode, the player who knows the least about The Mole is immediately "Executed" from the game. In the final dramatic episode, The Mole is revealed and one of two final players can win up to $500,000.
The 12 players for this edition of "The Mole" are:
Alex (Haverford, PA)
Ali (St. Louis, MO)
Bobby (Philadelphia, PA)
Clay (Philadelphia, PA)
Craig (San Diego, CA)
Kristen (Santa Monica, CA)
