A Dancing With the Stars mirrorball champion has exciting news – radio host Bobby Bones is hosting a new reality TV show called “Snake in the Grass” for the USA Network.
Here’s what we know so far:
Bones says ‘Snake in the Grass’ is like ‘Clue’ meets ‘The Mole’ and ‘Survivor’
NBC Universal has announced through a press release that radio host and Season 27 Dancing With the Stars champion Bobby Bones will host a new reality game show that the former American Idol mentor will start with the game ” Clue” meets “Survivor” compares “The Mole”
The press release teases:
USA Network pushes human nature to the limit with a new competition series, Snake in the Grass. This action-packed social experiment is hosted by national radio and television personality Bobby Bones. Each episode will feature four strangers thrown into the wild with a chance to win $100,000. To win, the team must figure out which of them is the Serpent – a saboteur who secretly undermines the group at every turn.
In case you’ve never seen it or forgotten it, The Mole was a truly underrated reality show that aired on ABC from 2001 to 2004 and then returned for a fifth season in 2008. The idea was for participants to work together to complete “missions” that added money to the community pot given to the winner at the end of the game. Except one of the participants was the mole who secretly sabotage the missions. At the end of each episode, contestants were asked about the mole’s identity and the person who knew the least about the mole was eliminated.
This actually sounds like a really fun new show. Bone is excited revealed in an Instagram post that they shot in Costa Rica for over a month and spent $100,000 an episode.
He added, “If you take the board game Clue and smash it with ‘The Mole,’ ‘Survivor,’ and a true crime podcast…this is that show. I can’t wait to share more details. But, welp, I don’t know exactly when it’s coming out either. But soon, otherwise they wouldn’t have announced it today!”
“Snake in the Grass” is part of the US program expansion
In addition to Snake in the Grass, USA Network announced a slew of other reality shows as it expands its unscripted programming.
The first is “Barmageddon,” a game show where real-life friends Blake Shelton and Carson Daly from “The Voice” bring their celebrity friends to Shelton’s bar in Nashville to play over-the-top versions of classic bar games. WWE wrestler Nikki Bella has been chosen to host.
Next is The Chain: Alaska, an outdoor competitive series set in the Aleutian Islands where “adventure racers and survival experts battle through the elements and against each other for a life-changing prize.” There’s also Winter Watchman, where four pairs of survivalists work to make their lodges withstand the harsh Alaskan winter.
“Rust Hunters” will “follow a multi-generational family business turning old vehicles and antiques in the New Hampshire backwoods,” and finally there are two new race-centric shows: “Austin Dillon’s Life in the Fast Lane,” which follows the Daytona 500 champion Dillon on and off the track and “Race for the Championship,” which takes viewers “into the personal and ambitious lives of NASCAR’s best drivers and teams against the backdrop of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs and Championship.”
No release dates are available just yet, but as Bones pointed out in his Instagram post, it should be within the next few months by the time they’ve announced the shows.
“American Idol” airs Sundays at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific Times on ABC. Dancing With the Stars returns for its 31st season on Disney Plus in fall 2022.
