Game shows are a great way to bond families and “Snake In The Grass” has your typical game elements and then some. Each episode pits four survival experts against the elements in the rainforest as they are tasked with completing a series of challenges. The prize for each one is a clue that will help them figure out which person among them is secretly trying to sabotage the group. In the end, the Snake will be revealed, and if they’ve been found out by the others, they split the prize cash. If not, it all goes home with the Snake. 

You and your family will have a ball watching the challenges unfold and placing your bets on who the snake in the grass is with each new episode. At the very least, you’ll find out who is the most cunning at your Thanksgiving table.
