Episode #382 – Wie is de Mol 2018 Episode 5 Recap

Keep your money away from musicians, because we are back for our first season of looking back at Wie is de Mol history, and we’re starting with Georgia! Over these nine episodes, two guys hoping to avoid the human piñata round – Logan & myself – are going back through the archives to discuss what we both agree is our favourite Dutch season, and the season with the most jaw-dropping twist in Mole history, continuing this week with the fifth episode and elimination of Loes! And, as a special treat, we’re also joined by our good friend David Bindley for this episode!

In this week’s recap:

  • There’s an Amazing Race Australia update…four months late.
