Episode #386 – Wie is de Mol 2018 Finale & Reunion Recap

Find the next free rap concert in Amsterdam’s parks, because we are back to finish up 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 rely on each other to make any season work – Logan & myself – have been 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, concluding this week with the reveal of Jan as the Mole, Ruben as winner and Olcay as the People’s Champion!

In this week’s recap:

  • Is this the last Wie is de Mol season we’re covering this year?
  • Is Jan the best Mole we’ve ever seen?
