Game show in which a group of globe-trotting contestants builds up the winner's cash prize by solving puzzles and completing tasks. One of them is a saboteur. Each week, the person least close to figuring out who that is, gets dismissed.

9 contestants, 1 mole, 3 weeks and over $100,000 to be won! The nine contestants are given a number of challenges to complete, each worth a certain amount of money. They must follow the guidelines and finish the challenge in order to win. However, the tenth contestant, the mole, must sabotage as many of the challengers as possible though he must appear like one of the others to avoid suspicion. Because at the end of the day the contestants must do a 20 question questionnaire about who they think the mole is. Who ever knows least about the mole gets eliminated and goes home, with nothing. At the end of the series only 1 person will win what is in the kitty.Written by
In 2005, any part of the $500,000 prize money that was lost by the contestants went into a separate prize kitty. If neither of the other final contestants knew the Mole's identity, the Mole would win this money. See more »
"The Mole" is an original concept that came from the Dutch speaking side of Belgium! Premiered in 1999, the Belgian show called "De Mol" was an instant hit, won a prestige "Golden Rose" in Montreaux and was sold to a lot of countries including the Netherlands, Germany, Australia and of course the US.
Some guy mentioned that this was a total ripoff of "Survivor". But perhaps this guy should get his facts straight. Survivor premiered in 2000, the Belgian "De Mol" premiered in 1999! Almost every reallife show is not originally from the States! Like Big Brother and the new show The Phone are originally Dutch TV-shows.
Anyway, "The Mole" is a terrific show, where audiences and viewers worldwide are challenged to think along with the show, to anticipate with what is coming next and therefore The Mole is a fantastic TV-show. In The Netherlands we've had 4 seasons with unknown competitors and 4 seasons with famous Dutch people. It is my opinion that the best "The Mole" seasons are always with famous persons.
