ABC’s The Mole finished with production.
ABC’s The Mole, which follows 10 contestants on a around-the-world trek, has finished filming. According to Zap2it.com, “The 10 players and 176-member crew traveled to 2 continents, 4 countries, 34 cities, stayed in 65 different hotels, spanning over 15,000 miles and used 16 modes of transportation, including planes, helicopters, buses, vans, boats, motorcycles and horses.” Along the way, the contestants have to try to figure out which one of them is a producer-planted mole. The Mole, airing sometime this season, will be hosted by journalist Anderson Cooper, who apparently did not learn a lesson from Julie Chen.
