The Mole (U.S. season 4)

Celebrity Mole: Yucatán was the fourth overall season (and second celebrity edition) of the American version of The Mole and aired from January 7 to February 18, 2004. It was filmed on the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, and based primarily at the Occidental Grand Flamenco Xcaret Resort. Filming was done in the fall of 2003.

The eight celebrities competed in games similar to the previous seasons. Popular players Stephen and Corbin both returned for a second chance, but again, both were executed early. Supermodel Angie Everhart was eventually revealed to be the saboteur and NBA star Dennis Rodman won the $222,000 grand prize.

Despite decent ratings, ABC chose not to renew its option on the series at the time, and Stone Stanley Entertainment (now Stone & Co. Entertainment) was unable to find a new network home for the series. Four years later, the series returned with a third civilian season, and fifth overall.

El Loco Taxi: The first player is given the keys to a taxi and must look for the other seven players. The players have an envelope which contains a clue giving the location of another player and a hint at the player that must be found. Each player found adds $5,000 to the pot. However, if the taxi does not make it back in time, no money is earned.

Artifact or Fiction: Two players are designated as salesmen. One person is given an ancient artifact while the other is given a fake. They will each develop a story about the object they were given. If the other players can determine who is lying, the group earns $10,000. If the group chooses incorrectly, the liar will earn an exemption.

Moon over Yucatán: The player who chose journal #2 is told about a secret game. For every person this player can convince to go swimming after dinner, $2,000 is added to the pot. If anyone goes skinny dipping, an exemption will be given to the player with journal #2.
