The Mole

"The Mole" is a reality show that began in Belgium in 1999. The format is that players compete in physical and mental challenges to build up a cash prize for the winner. Some of the challenges in the past have included tandem skydiving (if the player refuses to jump from the plane, the prize money is forfeited), hostage rescue (where one player is kidnapped and the other players must find and free him or her), riddle games, and three questions (in which the final three contestants must answer questions then use those questions to find a hidden contestant).

However, one is a "mole," a double agent who will try to sabotage the efforts of the group. He or she tries to act inconspicuous so his or her identity will not be revealed. Players keep notes of details that might reveal who the mole is in a journal. The end of each episode features a test of the players' knowledge of the mole. In the questions, the player is usually asked to identify the mole and information regarding him or her. The lowest scoring contestant (or slowest time if there is a tie) is eliminated.

"The Mole" premiered on ABC in January 2001 and will soon begin its fifth season. In 2003, there was an edition called "Celebrity Mole."

Season 5

Season 5 is scheduled to being on June 2, 2008. The new host will be Jon Kelley. The destination will be Chile.
