Survivor alums recently participated in a new reality competition show called Snake in the Grass. The new show will premiere this summer on USA and Peacock, giving fans of the genre something very interesting to tune in to before Survivor 43 arrives in the fall.

The premise of Snake in the Grass might remind a lot of television viewers of The Mole. That was a show that aired a few years ago, where teams were competing in challenges to win money. The twist was that someone was working against the team.

With Snake in the Grass, groups of four people will be competing for $100,000 in the South American jungles, but one person in the group is trying to make the team lose. That saboteur is hoping to claim the money all to themselves.

At the end of each four-person episode, a vote will take place where the group tries to agree on who the saboteur was. If the other three people correctly surmise what happened, they get to split the $100,000. But if the saboteur fools them, that person keeps all $100,000 to themselves.
