The Mole - In the Media


Recommended Posts

TV Guide News had this blurb:

That funny sound you hear is the bottom of the barrel being scraped. ABC has resurrected "The Mole" after four years, ordering 10 episodes to air this summer. With Anderson Cooper booked by CNN and Ahmad Rashad not being asked back, there's the question of who will host.

In an interview with Variety, Producer Scott Stone said, "We're looking for someone in the Anderson mode, a little mysterious but full of comedy. It could be a breakout role for someone." Casting for players is underway at MoleCasting.com.

Sign me up with the rest of you . . . I really enjoyed this show as well! However, I'll miss Anderson's guidance and humorous hosting style. I beg the producers to choose the new host wisely. It can either keep the show's intelligent pace or truly "dumb it down."

I too really enjoyed da mole.

I always thought it would be cool to intergrate the concept into BB or Survivor, or maybe just tell them one of them was a mole, when none existed.

I kind of viewed America's Player Eric in "Big Brother 8" as a "mole-type" of twist this past season. I truly enjoyed watching him try to control the game as voted by the viewers.

By now, most reality TV fans know that the beloved reality TV show The Mole is returning to ABC this Summer. Instead of releasing the names of all twelve players at once, ABC is playing it cool and has only released the names and bios of the first four.

The first four players announced for the new edition of The Mole are Kristen from Santa Monica, CA; Victoria from Bishop, TX; Clay from Philadelphia, PA; and Paul from Yonkers, NY. No last names have been revealed yet, but it

The Mole

Premieres Monday June 2

Dubbed television's smartest reality show, ABC is bringing back "The Mole," featuring all-new missions, locations and music, plus online and mobile interactivity, enabling more viewer participation during the 10 episodes. Jon Kelley ("Extra," "The National Sports Report," "Baseball Today") is host.

"The Mole" follows a group of 12 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 eliminated from the game. In the final dramatic episode, The Mole is revealed and one of two final players wins a substantial cash prize.

"The Mole," based on the hit Belgian format, will be produced by Stone & Company Entertainment. The original series, produced by Stone Stanley Entertainment, was hosted by Anderson Cooper.

Meet 'The Mole' and 11 Other Players

'The Mole' host Jon Kelley

They are scientists, doctors, machinists and models. And one of them is a saboteur.

ABC has revealed the identities of the 12 contestants on its resurrected reality show "The Mole," which returns to the air on June 2 after a four-year absence (it's been six years since the last non-celebrity version).

The series, hosted by Jon Kelley, will kick off in Chile, where contestants will have to jump over the edge of a waterfall, among other challenges. And, as in past incarnations, one of the 12 players is the Mole, secretly working to foil the plans of the other contestants. As with the previous editions, the player who knows the least about the Mole in each episode is eliminated, and the winner stands to pocket $500,000.

The 12 players range in age from 24 to 60 and include a neuroscientist, a restaurant manager, a retiree and a musician. Viewers will have to figure out for themselves just who the Mole is, however; ABC is promising a heavy online presence for the show so viewers can play along.

The Mole: Exposed!

June 16, 2008 09:58:39 by Paulene Hinds


Tonight on the Mole, the first item on the agenda was the death threat that Nicole made to Paul last week during the execution. Paul was especially taken aback by it, but decided to use it to his advantage to keep the other players off their game, while Ali thought that Nicole was just nuts!

While mistrust consumed some of the players, Mark, Clay and Bobby had been working together to form a coalition. They made an agreement to share their information to figure out who the Mole was. Together they discussed the other players and how they felt about them in the game. Meanwhile Nicole continued to go on about her comment to Paul and how she felt nothing for him and was going to remain focused in the game regardless of how he feels.


The players met host Jon Kelley, at a fruit stand for their first mission. He talked openly about the fact that there were major trust issues going on amongst the players and explained that the first mission is all about trust.

He told the group to break up into two with one being a non-trust group and the other a group of people who trust blindly. Immediately the players began to raise their hands shouting out which group they felt they should be in. After they have made their group decisions Jon told them that the mission was called,

The Mole, opens with Craig discussing how sick he got last week, Nicole complaining that everyone she picks to be the Mole gets executed, Clay thanking God for getting him this far in the game and Paul promising that he is working on ticking people off and will make the game even more brutal. Tonight the players must trust each other in order to be rescued from the freezing cold and the most loved player becomes the most hated.

The host, Jon Kelley met the players at Uspallada, Argentina outside of an old run down train station. He explains that a century ago this area was a holding place for prisoners being transported. They were chained together in the building behind him. He advises the group that this mission is all about trust. The first challenge is called,
