The Mole sees 12 American strangers compete in a series of mental and physical challenges, but only one of them can take home the whopping $1M prize. Let’s meet the line-up as the original 2001 show hits Netflix 21 years later.

The new players will complete tasks in order to add money to their pot of prize money, but who will be a team player and who is in it for their own benefit? With just one of them as a traitor, the rest must uncover who is the dark horse.

From Avori Henderson to Casey Lary, Reality Titbit has the lowdown on just who is taking on the gruelling challenge in the reboot, along with their Instagram accounts. Contestants range from a professional gamer to a Covid ICU nurse.

Dom Gabriel, Kesi Neblett, Sandy Ronquillo, Greg Shapiro look ahead on The Mole.
