Welcome to The Mole: this series is about trust.
– Presenter Mark Ferguson opens the show
Remember The Mole? It was like Big Brother meets Top Town meets board game Cluedo. Contestants worked together in team events to earn money, which, after many rounds of elimination, someone would win. The kicker? Someone in the show had been planted by producers to subtly sabotage their efforts.
– Chris Schulz sums up The Mole, in a May 2016 NZ Herald article on New Zealand's worst reality TV shows
The programme has turned into a serious mole-hunt, with [Mark] Ferguson overseeing proceedings like a mean father. His low-key approach and easy rapport with the team, and the camera, hides a devious underbelly ... It has to be said The Mole is at times a sadistic social experiment.
– Fiona Rae reviews The Mole in The NZ Herald, 30 June 2000
