How does Snake in the Grass work?
Each episode of Snake in the Grass features four players who are left in the wild for 36 hours.
During this time, they must work to find out which one of them is “The Serpent”, also known as the contestant who is secretly undermining the group.
The contestants end up competing in a series of challenges to get clues to help them determine who the Serpent is.
After their time in the Central American jungle is up, they head to the “Snake Pit” to find out who was trying to sabotage them.
If three players guess the snake, they win $100,000.
However, if they are unable, then the Serpent leaves with everything.
How can I watch Snake in the Grass?
Snake in the Grass can be seen live on USA Network Mondays at 11:00 PM EST starting August 1, 2022.
It can also be streamed on Peacock.
Before the show began, Bones sat down with Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager on the Today show, where he explained how the show is like a “social experiment.”
“I’ve never met anyone who says ‘I’m a terrible judge of character’ — everyone thinks they’re great at it,” Bones said, via US Weekly .
“This show is like that – can you follow someone and see what they’re doing and see who’s lying? You watch people under pressure, you watch people do hard things… can they keep lying and get away with it? Because if they can, they’ll win all the money.”
