Sab­o­tage, mind games draw Taft to The Mole

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

Pyra­mid host Shura Taft is mak­ing the jump from chil­dren’s tele­vi­sion to prime time as the new host of Chan­nel 7’s chal­lenge se­ries The Mole. Taft (pic­tured), who hosted the AFL’s Supercoach Show on Fox Footy, says he is a big fan. ‘‘The fact that one of the con­tes­tants is ac­tu­ally try­ing to sab­o­tage what the oth­ers are try­ing to achieve is fan­tas­tic in­trigue,’’ he says. ‘‘The mind games are the best part of the game. I’m an ab­so­lute Mole nerd.’’ The re­al­ity TV show in­volves a group of con­tes­tants col­lab­o­rat­ing to per­form chal­lenges that earn money, while one – the Mole – works from within to try and make the group fail. ‘‘As a host you want to not only love what you do but also love the show you’re host­ing,’’ says Taft. ‘‘To be given the op­por­tu­nity by Seven to be a part of The Mole is un­be­liev­able.’’ Seven will be­gin pro­duc­tion on The Mole this month.

Coming soon: Seven, Prime7.
