NEXT EPISODE AIRS MONDAY, JUNE 23, ON ABC

The fourth episode airs MONDAY, JUNE 23 (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 new hour, "Episode 504," the eight remaining players travel to the majestic Andes, where they face a treacherous trek up a mountain carrying bricks of gold. And a surprising twist pushes one of them to the brink.

Alex (Haverford, PA)
Clay (Philadelphia, PA)
Craig (San Diego, CA)
Kristen (Santa Monica, CA)
Mark (Mukwonago, WI)
Nicole (Chicago, IL)

ALI SONOMA -- Ali is a model, who has worked as a ring girl for the UFC. She describes herself as "stunning" and believes her beauty helps her get her way, but also causes people to instantly dismiss her, which she thought would benefit her in the game. Ali used to be a wild, party girl. She celebrated her 21st birthday with Motley Crue in Las Vegas. But now she treats her body as a temple. She has strong religious beliefs and has settled down with her boyfriend, a UFC fighter. She claims to have a 75% accuracy rate with shotguns and is experienced in fishing. She considers herself ambitious and caring, but also forgetful and prone to road rage. Ali planned on using her beauty and brains to outsmart the other players.
BOBBY O'DONNELL -- Bobby loves games, competing and winning, though you may not know it from his low key exterior. He is a hardcore fan of "The Mole" and used to host Mole watching parties in his basement. His weakness was his physique. He's a little frail and not very athletic. But he knows the game well and thought had a solid strategy to form coalitions with less intelligent players whom he could lead astray. Being gay, he felt that his "gaydar" -- the ability to recognize other gay people -- would help him read people in the game.
"The Mole" is produced by Stone & Company Entertainment. In the final dramatic episode, the "Mole" will be revealed and one of two final players can win up to $500,000.
