Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Bobby Bones, each one-hour episode of SNAKE IN THE GRASS features four players who are dropped into the wild for 36 hours with a chance to win $100,000. In order to win, the four must figure out which one of them is "the Snake" -- a saboteur who is secretly undermining the group every step of the way. The players 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. Not wanting their identity revealed, the Snake does 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 meets in the Snake Pit, where they must determine who they think the saboteur might be. If the three players can successfully reveal the identity, they win the $100,000. If they get it wrong, the Snake walks away with all the money for themselves. Fan-favorite reality competition legends from SURVIVOR, BIG BROTHER, and NAKED AND AFRAID are among those competing in this real-life psychological thriller set in the central American jungle.
