Details about Snake in the Grass

Snake in the Grass is a new game show with $100,000 at stake. Four players are dropped the wild and have to find out who 'the snake' is in order to win the cash prize. If the three players are able to reveal the identity of the saboteur, they will win the prize. Else, the saboteur will walk away with all the money. The official synopsis of the show reads:

“In this survival of the sneakiest, the players will compete in a series of grueling and mind-twisting challenges, from retrieving game pieces suspended on high wires over a 500-foot canyon, to scaling the face of a cliff to solve puzzles. With each successfully completed challenge, the competitors win a clue that helps reveal the identity of the Snake.”

Further adding:

“Not wanting their identity revealed, the Snake will do whatever it takes to prevent the players from winning the clues by sabotaging their journey any chance they get. After overnighting in the remote and rugged Central American jungle, the group will meet in ‘the Snake Pit’ where they must determine who they think the saboteur might be.”

Hosting “Snake in the Grass has been a really cool experience” for Bones who “lived in Costa Rica for more than a month” for shooting the adventurous and mysterious show. The show will keep viewers "guessing!" till the end.
