Mole digs spy games

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

JAY­DEN Irv­ing is nei­ther a su­per sleuth nor a de­cent ac­tor af­ter be­ing elim­i­nated from re­al­ity game The Mole. Irv­ing’s exit leaves 10 par­tic­i­pants to com­pete on the Chan­nel 7 se­ries. The Mole in­volves a se­ries of chal­lenges, which are sab­o­taged by one con­tes­tant who is a dou­ble agent. At the end of each round, con­tes­tants fill out a ques­tion­naire about their spe­cific chal­lenge and guess who they think the Mole is. The per­son with the low­est score ex­its. Irv­ing, who spent 25 days in a Congo prison be­cause of a visa is­sue, says the early exit means he could not ex­e­cute his plan to win The Mole. The Vic­to­rian surfer hoped to use his story to lure other con­tes­tants into believ­ing he was the dou­ble agent. ‘‘I had a plan in my head to play the game to the end and bring out events from my past to con­fuse the oth­ers into think­ing I was the Mole, so it was dis­ap­point­ing to go early,’’ says Irv­ing. An­other con­tes­tant goes tonight.

The Mole: Tues­day, 7.30pm, Thurs­day, 8pm, Seven, Prime7.
