The Upcoming Episode Of 'Snake In The Grass' Will Feature Reality TV Legends

Three "Survivor" fan favorites are going toe to toe with a "Naked And Afraid" expert in a battle of wits and deception.

By Becca van Sambeck

There is a lot to love about "Snake In The Grass," the new reality competition series on USA Network: the unique and jaw-dropping challenges, figuring out which player is actively deceiving the others, the Costa Rican scenery, the arguments at the Snake Pit ... but our favorite part may actually be when the contestants are familiar faces from other reality franchises.

How to Watch

Stream all eight episodes of "Snake in the Grass" on Peacock.

Each episode of "Snake In The Grass," airing Mondays at 11 p.m. ET/PT on USA Network, features four people competing in various challenges, all while determining which one of them is the Snake, aka the person sabotaging the others. While the players come from all kinds of backgrounds, several Season 1 episodes feature alumni of "Survivor," "Big Brother," and "Naked And Afraid."

Episode 3 features three fan favorites from "Survivor" as well as a notable "Naked And Afraid" legend. Here's what to know about them before the episode airs.
