Later on, the results of a puzzle challenge determine the sniper in a game of paintball with both money and a potential exemption on the line.

Here, they face a challenge that gives them not only the opportunity to earn money, but also a shot at something potentially more valuable, time spent with their families.

The players visit the Lagrarde Vineyard, makers of the finest Malbec wine, where they take part in a complex challenge that involves both the solving of brain-teasers and some good, old-fashioned hoofing. Despite a strong performance in the challenge, certain activities by some players lead others to wonder if any sort of potential sabotage may have been attempted. The players later head to a bridge over the Mendoza River where they are told not only to bungee jump but also to attempt to hit a target. As an added twist, before jumping, each contestant is asked to guess how much money the group will make during the challenge.

The players later travel from Uspallata to Mendoza, described as the "Napa Valley of Argentina." Though all are excited by the change in scenery, two players in particular find themselves at each other's throats during the van ride there. The conflict is broken up only when the decision is made by some players to switch vans. At the new destination, the players are tasked with a strongly physical challenge containing a huge twist.

The results of this challenge lead to a shift in the game for many, as reputations crumble and new suspicions are formed.moreless

During this task, all players are tested to their physical limits while doing their best to maintain their mental game as well. Later, the contestants pay a visit to Pomaire where they face a challenge that requires them to "make pigs fly."

    • The Mole 3.0 Premiere
      Jon Kelley hosts the return of The Mole, a reality-competition that follows twelve players on a worldwide adventure. One of them is the mole, a saboteur that could thwart their efforts at anytime. The games began immediately with a challenge that required each of the players to dive waterfall and grab for money -- with the exception of a single player who was left to determine which should jump for real money, and which for fake. When only a small portion of the available money is put in the pot, suspicions immediately flare as to who could be the mole. That evening, some contestants are less than satisfied with their sleeping arrangements when a set of players is told they must sleep outside. One player thwarts the rules by staying awake all night. Later, the teams are sent to a beach to participate in a scavenger-hunt style game. Though they fare somewhat better, winning a majority of the available money, evidence of possible sabotage leads some to wonder if the mole is already at work. The players nervously face the evening's first execution after airing a series of ten challenging questions regarding whom they believe to the be the mole. One player, who seemed to have been given an early advantage, is eliminated in a surprising execution.moreless
