The Mole

ABC’s The Mole was a game of strategy and intrigue originally hosted by Anderson Cooper, and also aired two celebrity seasons. Each season has one player secretly working for the producers and against the other players, who are quizzed about The Mole’s identity. The Mole is coming back in 2021, filming a new season with American contestants in Australia.
