Episode #385 – Wie is de Mol 2018 Episode 8 Recap

Tear down your David Duchovny posters, 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 who aren’t that great, but are trying their best – 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 eighth episode and elimination of Simone! And as a special end of season treat, our good friend David Bindley is back for another episode!

In this week’s recap:

  • How can we follow up the big top from Bindles’ last episode?
  • Can Olcay help herself?
  • Why do they do so much travelling this season?
  • Where does the chanting in Ancient Voices come from?
  • Was there enough for the Mole to do in the choir challenge?
  • Stine’s evil twin joins a choir.
  • Why do Mole seasons love doing karaoke challenges?
  • Is Simone terrible at charades?
  • There’s some praise for the playlist choices.
  • Why did Simone skip an Ed Sheeran song?
  • Would you recognise a muted national anthem?
  • Should they have scored more than eight out of forty songs?
  • What were they told in car-aoke?
  • Is this the first time that a Mole host has admitted they know who the Mole is?
  • Why was David the guide so grumpy?
  • How good is the casting up until this season?
  • Why is Jan like Augustus Gloop?
  • Would we ever see Rik make a stumble like Art did?
  • Who are our favourite actors?
  • We delve into Russian history.
  • There’s a sneaky editing joke at Ruben’s expense.
  • Did we luck out getting this final three?
  • Why is this season so good?
  • And we discuss what the Mole did for the final time this season, including two potential hidden clues and us spotting one of the Mole’s main tactics.
