EIGHT CELEBRITIES COMPETE IN THE SEASON PREMIERE OF ABC'S "CELEBRITY MOLE YUCATAN," WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 7
Stephen Baldwin and Corbin Bernsen from "Celebrity Mole Hawaii" Return, Determined This Time to Win
The tropical paradise of Mexico's exotic Yucatan peninsula is the setting for eight celebrities competing to figure out who among them is the Mole, and to win a possible cash prize of up to $250,000, in "Celebrity Mole Yucatan," making its season premiere WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 7 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Newcomers include legendary basketball bad boy Dennis Rodman, former v.j. and talk-show host Ananda Lewis, comedian Mark Curry ("Hangin' with Mr. Cooper"), supermodel Angie Everhart, sitcom stars Tracey Gold ("Growing Pains") and Keshia Knight Pulliam ("The Cosby Show"), battling against returning players Stephen Baldwin ("Usual Suspects," "One Good Cop") and Corbin Bernsen ("L.A. Law," "Major League"), who hope to avenge their early executions on the Hawaiian version of the series last season. Emmy Award-winning sportscaster Ahmad Rashad also returns to host the series.
In the premiere, "Episode 401," the players are taken on the ride of their lives as Corbin Bernsen jumps speed bumps and runs stop signs driving the "Celebrity Mole Taxi" through the streets of Mexico, picking everyone up. The games continue, including a challenge to go skinny dipping in the warm Mexican waters. Who will be the Mole's first victim? You won't want to miss a minute!
"Celebrity Mole Yucatan" will be a special seven-episode version of the show, as each of the eight celebrities tries to figure out who among them is The Mole. The celebrities will use all their guile to uncover clues that could lead them to a pot of up to $250,000. They must complete a series of challenging physical and mental games to earn money for the pot, which one player will eventually win. Working undercover against the team, however, is The Mole, a double agent planted by the producers to sabotage the players' efforts. It is the goal of the players to decide who they think The Mole is, then learn as much about him or her as possible. In the final dramatic episode, The Mole is revealed and the one remaining player wins the jackpot.
"Celebrity Mole Yucatan" is produced by Stone Stanley Entertainment. David G. Stanley, Scott A. Stone and Clay Newbill are the executive producers.
