Episode #440 – Wie is de Mol 2010 Episode 1 Recap

Appreciate the kimono lady, because we are back for our third season of looking back at Wie is de Mol history, and we’re going all the way back to 2010 with Japan! Over the next nine episodes, the most beloved podcasters of all time – Logan & I – will be going back through the archives to discuss a very special season that both of us love – beginning with the premiere and elimination of Loretta.

In this week’s recap:

  • Why did we pick this season?
  • I forget where Logan first saw this episode.
  • How different is it to have Pieter Jan hosting?
  • Is it helpful to introduce everyone immediately?
  • Were we waiting for a “Trust…nobody”?
  • Logan hands out an award.
  • I get an unironic favourite.
  • There’s a cameo from a WIDM alumna that nobody remembers in this episode.
  • One person has had a bit of a fame turnaround since the season aired.
  • Why was George the most famous Mole?
  • We adapt a Belgian feature just for Pieter Jan.
  • Logan googles something.
  • Is the opening challenge slightly convoluted?
  • How can a flight to Japan be two days long?
  • Were Sanne & Tim flirting?
  • Should Barbara have been listening to more of the work of California Funk Rock Band, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers?
  • There is a very recognisable piece of music to British viewers.
  • What would we buy with ¥2000?
  • How did everyone know that Erik is a butterfly?
  • Did Loretta understand the second challenge?
  • Why is WIDM like prison?
  • Do we still have our suspicions from the time?
  • What would €2000 buy you in Japan?
  • Why did they stop using “Looking for Clues” for the test scenes?
  • How come everyone laughed when Loretta got the red screen?
  • Logan gets to talk about one of his favourite things.
  • Were the quizzes done on Geocities?
  • Is there a bit of forgiveness for Loretta focusing too much on one person?
  • And we discuss what the Mole actually did, as well as pouring one out to the old subtitler of this season and wondering whether certain people were already suspicious of the Mole.

We’ll see you next week for Episode 2!
