Big Brother alums Rachel Reilly and Janelle Pierzina are going to appear on a new reality competition show called Snake in the Grass this summer. There are a lot of jokes that could be made there, as they have both been referred to as snakes within the Big Brother house.
The premise of the show may remind some TV viewers of The Mole, which aired for several seasons and has seen a resurgence in viewers through Netflix. But rather than a season-long competition, each episode will feature a new group of people.
There will be four people from the world of reality TV starring on some of the episodes, with other nights having regular people appearing on the show. They are going to be competing in the jungles of Central America for 36 hours, going through grueling and mind-twisting challenges along the way. The twist is that one of the four people is working against the team.
At the end of the episode, a guess will be placed about who the saboteur was during the episode. If the three other people correctly guess who the snake was, they get to split a $100,000 prize. But if the snake fools everyone, that person takes home all of the money.
Snake in the Grass cast members
In addition to Big Brother 13 winner Rachel Reilly and four-time houseguest Janelle Pierzina, the Snake in the Grass cast will feature Survivor: Cook Islands winner Yul Kwon and Survivor: Fiji winner Earl Cole.
There are also a few people from the Naked and Afraid franchise (Jeff Zausch and Lacey Jones) who will be playing the game.
Dancing With the Stars winner Bobby Bones will serve as the host, and the first episode of Snake in the Grass will premiere on August 1 at 11/10c on USA.
As for the episode that will feature Rachel and Janelle, it is also going to co-star Stephenie LaGrossa and Cirie Fields as the other two competitors. Those two ladies were featured on Survivor.
