How does Snake in the Grass work?
Each episode of Snake in the Grass will feature four players who are left in the wild for 36 hours.
During that time, they must work to figure out which one of them is “the Snake,” also known as the contestant who is secretly undermining the group.
Contestants ultimately compete in a series of challenges to receive clues to help them determine who the Snake is.
After their time is up in the Central American jungle, they then head to “the Snake Pit” to determine who has been trying to sabotage them.
If the three players can guess the Snake, then they win the $100,000.
However, if they are unable to, then the Snake walks away with all of it.
How can I watch Snake in the Grass?
Snake in the Grass can be watched live Mondays on USA Network at 11pm EST starting August 1, 2022.
It can also be streamed on Peacock.
Prior to the start of the show, Bones sat down with Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager on Today, where he explained how the show is like “a social experiment.”
“I’ve never met anyone that goes, ‘I’m a terrible judge of character’ — everyone thinks they’re great at it,” Bones said, via US Weekly.
“This show is that — can you watch someone and watch what they’re doing and figure out who’s lying? You’re watching people get pressed, you’re watching people do hard things … can they keep lying and can they pull it off? Because if they can, they’re gonna win all the money.”
