The Mole Season 3 Summary

Season 3, Episode 1:

On The Line: The group is split up into two groups: four strong players, and three who would like to hang out. A player from the hang out group will be on a zip line and have to grab a bucket, fill it at the waterfall and empty it into a bigger bucket, which when filled with enough water will lift a money bag worth $10,000. The strong players will be in four positions: two operate a crank that moves the hanging player back and forth; one operates a joystick that moves the player up and down; and the other will be a spotter giving instructions to the other three strong players. The first hanger has six minutes to complete the task, while the two other hanging players will have to beat the previous best time in order to add money. The strong players rotate positions for each turn. Up to $30,000 can be added to the pot in this game.

Baa Baa Black Jack: The players form three groups of two, leaving one person out of the first part of the game. Every sheep has a cape with a card value on it. For each group that can wrangle two sheep into the group’s pen in three minutes and beat Ahmad’s hand, two cards picked from regular cards by the left out player, $5,000 is added. The group with the best hand can add an additional $10,000 by beating Ahmad’s hand a second time. Finally, the player who was left out can earn an exemption and double the money earned from this game if he can corral the Mole sheep, a sheep with a black cape, into one of the pens in under three minutes. However, if he fails, all the money is lost from this game. In this game, up to $50,000 can be added to the pot.

Season 3, Episode 2:

Take This Job: The players are split into three groups of two: flight attendants, short order cooks, and lifeguards. The flight attendants are to wipe off grease on the front panel while a plane does tricks in the air. The short order cooks are to walk across hot rocks and retrieve a chicken. The lifeguards’ job is to jump into a lagoon. The players will guess on the performance of the other group’s members. For each correct guess, $1,000 will be added, making this game worth $24,000.

Underwater Charades: The players form three groups of two: charade players, gravediggers and players in a submarine. The charade players are given five cards which have the titles of movies or television shows in which a character dies. The submarine group must figure out the title. Once they do, they report the title to the gravediggers, who will dig up a coffin of the actor whose character died. Inside one of the coffins is $25,000. If the gravediggers find this coffin, that money will be added to the pot.

Exemption Dinner: The group must unanimously decide who will be given an exemption in this episode. If they do that, $25,000 will be added to the pot. However, if they can not reach an agreement, $25,000 will be taken out of the pot.

Season 3, Episode 3:

Offshore Account: Four players must build a raft out of a pile of junk and row it to the money offshore in under thirty minutes to win $30,000. The person left out is told to make smoothies. The smoothie making player is given an offer to use a metal detector to find $15 worth of coins and rent a kayak to grab the flag on the offshore money. If the player does this, he gains an exemption and no money goes into the pot. However, if the player gives back the exemption, $60,000 will be added.

Looky Looky Hot Pepper Each player is asked a pop culture question and chooses a mouse which moves to one of six areas marked with numbers 1-6. This decides what type of hot pepper a player must eat, 6 being the hottest. If the player answers correctly, he/she can pass the pepper off to someone else. However, if the player is wrong, he/she must take a bite out of the pepper, chew it, show the group, and swallow it to add money. Each pepper is worth $10,000. A glass of milk can be bought for $1,000 if a player’s mouth becomes too hot. Afterwards, an additional $25,000 would be added if everyone eats another pepper, which turned out to be a non-spicy tomato pepper.

Season 3, Episode 4:

Hulapalooza: The remaining male contestants must perform the hula to the song “Tiny Bubbles” while the remaining female contestants surf. The surfers have thirty minutes to each stand on their board for five seconds while the males must keep dancing during this time. $20,000 will be added if the groups are successful. Afterwards, Erik was given an offer to stand on the surfboard for twenty seconds to add $10,000 to the group pot.

Exemption Game: The players form two groups and compete against each other for the final exemption. The first round features two brain teasers. The group that answers them the fastest goes on to the second round. There the two players answer ten multiple choice questions. The player who correctly answers the questions the fastest is given the chance at the final exemption by playing a memory game with a deck of cards. 52 cards are in front of the contestant face down, and the player can only pick two at a time. The other three players must find him before he matches the 26 pairs. This prevents him from getting the exemption and earns $20,000 for the pot.

Season 3, Episode 5

Three Questions: Each player filled out a questionnaire about the other two players. Each player took turns hiding in the forest while the other two searched for him/her by predicting how the player answered three of the questions. If the duo answered all three questions right, the group earned $10,000. A possible $30,000 was available in this game.

It Takes a Thief: The players take part in a scavenger hunt by following clues that can only be read by a black light. These clues ultimately lead to three numbers. Once the players find the numbers, they have to correctly guess the combination to open a safe. Once opened, the safe gives the players one final clue to find the money. If the players are stuck, they can buy an additional clue for $1,000. Up to $75,000 could be added to the pot in this game.

The remaining players took the final quiz, and the winner was to be revealed the following week.

Season 3, Episode 6

The final episode revealed Kathy as the winner and Frederique as the Mole. To reveal the results, the players were put behind three locked doors and placed their hand on a scanner. The first player to come out was the winner and the second was the Mole.

In this episode it was revealed that both Kathy and Erik had tied for the lowest score with Stephen on the second quiz. Also, Kathy and Corbin had the low score in the third quiz. Since Stephen and Corbin were slower in the respective quizzes, they were executed. Furthermore, had it not been for the exemption in Episode 4, Erik would have been executed, not Michael.

The remainder of the episode was focused on the ways the Mole sabotaged games and explaining the hidden clues that pointed to the Mole’s identity to the viewers.
