Episode #341 – De Mol Belgie South Africa Episode 1 Recap

Put your dumb pets in another room, as we are back again for some brand-new/old Belgian Mole! Over these eight weeks, Logan & I will be going back to an episode of one of the two Belgian seasons that we haven’t covered before each week – looking for the clues we missed and refreshing our memories on two of the best seasons we never covered, continuing with the first episode of the South Africa season this week!
