Mole (US) - Season One Task Summaries

Post  raceguy120390 on Fri Jan 11, 2008 1:04 am

Disclaimer: These are not the official names for the tasks, because I cannot find anywhere which lists them. I have not seen the American version of The Mole at any point (or any outside of the Australian version and one episode of the second UK season), so there are probably loads of mistakes. If you have any extra information about task details (anything represented by a question mark in the asignment details, additional task details - not results, etc.), please feel free to post your info in this thread.

THE MOLE ASSIGNMENT DETAILS

FILMING LOCATION(S): UNITED STATES, FRANCE, MONACO, SPAIN


EPISODE ONE

Those two must use the numerical information from the dossiers to solve a sum which provides a four-digit code (for example 'Number of children x has + y's shoe size'). They must use this code and a bankcard to retrieve 500 Francs from a nearby bank. They have three attempts to get the correct code and use the ATM at the bank. If the agents need assistance at any point, they can call another person to come and help, but it will cost them fifteen minutes of their two hour time limit for each agent called. The agents not participating are taken to another room, forbidden from discussing the dossiers (at a cost of $10,000 for each breach), and filmed by hidden cameras for the duration of this challenge.

Assignment Value: $20,000
Assignment Won: $0
Total Possible: $1,000,000
Total Won: $530,000*

------------------------------

FINAL QUESTIONNAIRE LOCATION: Bullfighting ring

EXECUTED: Jim
WINNER: Steve
THE MOLE: Kathryn

------------------------------
------------------------------
------------------------------
------------------------------

SABOTAGES

Hostage Rescue: Wasted a lot of time. Did likewise in many of the timed challenges. Managed to convince the group to search a location even though Anderson had told them it was wrong.

Cartier Test: Told others to 'pull the trigger' when deciding which watch to destroy. The players were not told before hand that it would be shot.

Dice Roulette: Before challenge, Kathryn and Wendi were talking and Kathryn mentioned she'd never shave her head. Later ensured that producers gave her that task.

Paintball Run: Deliberately got shot early.

Skilful, Smart, Stupid: Let Steve waste time trying to get broken van fixed. Distracted Steve so they went the wrong way.

Fortress Security: Let attackers knock over glass bowl.

Make Artwork: Made complex artwork, out of place with other pieces at gallery, and thus easier for critic to find.

PRODUCER CLUES

In the luggage task, Anderson held up Kathryn's bag as an example.

The word MOLE has four letters, and Kathryn was introduced fourth in the first episode.
