|The Mole: Return of the Traitor|
|No. of Players||20|
|Previous Season||Fresh Meat|
The Mole is the eighth season in the RSF Franchise. This season followed Fresh Meat.
The Mole is a reality television game show where players must work together to complete various physical and mental challenges to build up a significant cash prize for the winner. One of them, however, is "the Mole", a double agent hired by the producers to sabotage the efforts of the group. The Mole must be careful to avoid drawing too much suspicion to himself or herself. Using journals, players must track vast amounts of data about the person(s) they suspect of being the Mole, such as seating positions, clothing colors, minor discussion topics, and so on. The quiz at the end of each episode tests players' knowledge of the Mole, and determines by lowest score (or slowest time, in the event of a tie) who is eliminated from the game.
In addition to exemptions being available in the season, bonus tokens were introduced into the game. When a bonus token was used on a quiz it would increase the score of the contestant's quiz by 1 correct answer, thus increasing their chances of staying in the game.
This season one contestant was offered a bribe of a guaranteed pass onto a future RSF Season at the execution based on lists made by all players if they chose to leave the game without seeing their quiz results. BBlover96 was offered this bribe but declined. They ended up being executed the same round they declined the bribe.
In the end, Insanity17 triumphed over mjpj189 to claim the title as RSF Champion of Season 8: The Mole Return of the Traitor, while Spinner554 was revealed to have been the Mole.
