Regularly Scheduled Episode Follows
A recap of the first five episodes, plus never-before-seen footage will air as a one-hour special, "The Mole: Take Another Look," MONDAY, JULY 14 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), followed by "Episode 506" (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC. Jon Kelley ("Extra," "The National Sports Report," "Baseball Today") is host of the show. Note: "The Mole" will be preempted on Monday, July 7.
Here are highlights of the first five episodes:
"Episode 501," Premiere: 12 players met for the first time in Los Angeles, Chile. Their first mission was jumping over the edge of a waterfall, facing their greatest fears, and one player was left stranded on a deserted beach to fend for himself/herself. Marcie Ciscel (Corona, CA) was Executed.
"Episode 502": The players faced a formidable team while playing Chile's most popular sport, soccer. And Bobby traveled in a wheelbarrow while searching for the town's missing pigs. Liz Cain (Whitefish, MT) was Executed.
"Episode 503": The players roamed through the streets of Santiago in their underwear, begging for clothes -- for Ali, Kristen and Victoria, their highlight was getting marriage proposals from whistling workers. And, big surprise, Paul picked a fight at the dinner table. Ali Sonoma (St. Louis, MO), who took a $30,000 bribe to leave the show, and Bobby O'Donnell (Philadelphia, PA) were Executed.
"Episode 504": The eight remaining players traveled to the majestic Andes, where they faced a treacherous trek up a mountain carrying bricks of gold. And a surprising twist pushed one of them to the brink. Victoria Garza (Bishop, TX) was Executed.
"Episode 505" (airs MONDAY, JUNE 30): 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 seven remaining players are:
Alex (Haverford, PA)
Clay (Philadelphia, PA)
Craig (San Diego, CA)
Kristen (Santa Monica, CA)
Mark (Mukwonago, WI)
Nicole (Chicago, IL)
Paul (Yonkers, NY)
