The following out-of-con-text quotes aptly express my feelings about this Mole competition, the second to feature minor celebrities.

Keshia Knight Pulliam (ex-Cosby Show kid): "Oh my God, this is awful."

Tracey Gold (Growing Pains): "It was like watching a train wreck."

As on previous Moles, the players go through various challenges (like an endless round of piñata-bashing) while one acts as secret saboteur. Corbin Bernsen and Stephen Baldwin, returnees from last year's game in Hawaii, obviously try to annoy—and boy, do they succeed. Model Angie Everhart skinny-dipped in the Jan. 7 season premiere, prompting an appreciative Mark Curry (Hangin' with Mr. Cooper) to retitle the show Pimp Mole. Ex-MTV veejay Ananda Lewis seemed relieved to be eliminated in the opener, while former NBA renegade Dennis Rodman looks bored out of his gourd.
