Full Cast of Bbc One’s the Traitors Contestants
The Traitors see contestants move into a majestic castle in the Scottish Highlands and work as a team to complete a series of dramatic and challenging missions to earn money for the prize pot.
However, three of the contestants are secretly traitors who will attempt to deceive and manipulate their way to the prize by eliminating “loyal” contestants. Can all of the traitors be unmasked in time?
It’s a tense psychological game in which players must decide who they can trust. In each episode, the players collaborate to complete spectacular physical and mental missions. If they are successful, they contribute to a prize pool worth up to £120,000.
But to win the prize pot, players must survive to the end of the game – they must avoid being ‘murdered’ or ‘banished’.
Claudia Winkleman secretly chooses a small group of players to be The Traitors at the start of the game. The remaining players are referred to as “The Faithful,” and none of The Faithful are aware of who The Traitors are.
Players are eliminated in one of two ways: each night, The Traitors meet in secret and decide to murder one of The Faithful, and the next morning, when the group gathers for breakfast, the murdered player is missing.
Later in the day, all of the players gather at the ‘Round Table,’ where they decide to ‘banish’ a player they suspect of being a Traitor. Whoever they choose will reveal whether they are a traitor or a faithful.
At the end of the game, the few remaining players will share the prize pot if they are all Faithful, but if there is still a Traitor among them, the Traitor will receive the entire prize money.
