Episode #431 – De Mol België Canary Islands Episode 4 Recap

Watch a funny little event that happens every Summer, as Best Friend of the Podcast Papa Bear Gilles de Coster invites another ten candidates to join him in some challenges, deception and ultimately friendship, this time in the Canary Islands! As always, one of them has a second motive – to sabotage and restrict the pot as much as possible, whilst avoiding the searching gaze of both their fellow players and the public. Each week, two guys who are paranoid and sleep-deprived respectively – Logan & I – are attempting to uncover the truth behind the lies and who we will be sharing a croque with, continuing with the fourth episode and self-elimination of the original Mole of the season, Philippe.

In this episode:

  • Logan gets potentially the most disgusting intro he’s ever had.
  • We deal with the most pressing topic of all first.
  • The Jet Ski Mafia make an appearance.
  • How big was the news that the Mole had quit?

  • Did Gilles ask if the new Mole sleeptalks?
  • Is the Mole Switch actually a blessing-in-disguise for Production?

  • Was the cycling challenge stacked against the team?
  • Did Yens have any advantage – having trained as a racing cyclist?
  • What is the point of a track stand?
  • Did Producers give Thomas a disadvantage?
  • What is the irony in this week’s podcast?
  • Is there one big reason why Philippe couldn’t pop the tyre?
  • Are there any famous Canadian cyclists?
  • A small bit of bragging leads to us getting a definitive set of filming dates.
  • We find our kind of people in the cast.
  • I profess my love for bad woodwind.
  • Have Production been watching French television?
  • Did Manu guess a real song?
  • Where would the Mole want to be in the Drag challenge?
  • Who is the Raymond Holt of this cast?
  • Gilles is left speechless.
  • Should there be more Mole Classic challenges in the next few weeks?
  • Did everyone suspect Philippe?
  • Was Philippe up for being the Mole?
  • Did the last-second rejection last year affect Philippe’s psyche?
  • Does Philippe’s situation make you think twice about wanting to be the Mole?
  • Are films deliberately chosen on planes?
  • Did Philippe’s departure come out of the blue?
  • Gilles tells everyone to Be Prepared to potentially become the Mole.
  • Who did Logan suspect before the announcement?
  • Is “unreadable” a compliment?
  • What qualities should they be looking for in the new Mole?
  • We try and predict who will be picked as the new Mole.
  • The first winners of the year are announced.
  • And we guess who will go home next week, with absolutely nothing to go on.

As Philippe quit, Logan’s team is now Anke, Manu & Uma and my team is Sven, Bert & Yens.
