Episode #317 – De Mol Belgie Greece Finale Recap

Pop the champagne and spray yourself with copious amounts of perfume, as everyone’s favourite series is back, and Best Friend of the Podcast Gilles de Coster invites another ten candidates to join him in some challenges, this time in Greece! As always, one of them has a second motive – to sabotage and restrict the pot as much as possible. Join the only two people who are genuinely concerned about the welfare of Alina’s dog – Michael & Logan – each week to uncover the truth behind the lies and try and find out who will succeed the King of the Regenpijps in our affections.

Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, Logan & I were unable to be at the finale live in Kinepolis but this week saw the Mole being revealed – and it was Alina! This means that I am – once again – the winner of our Predictions Pool!
