Handle the walkie-talkie, 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 these nine episodes, two guys who are always this sarcastic even if they know who the Mole is – Logan & I – are going back through the archives to discuss a very special season that both of us love – continuing with the second episode and elimination of Tim.
In this week’s recap:
- Why did they hype Tim up last week?
- Are older WIDM episodes just efficient?
- Why is the filming schedule so condensed?
- Is Japan the tipping point of WIDM?
- How have jokers evolved?
- How should you play the tram challenge?
- Are we already in danger of spoiling who the Mole is?
- Were the first team right to target students who might speak English?
- Should they have had to retrieve all the tubes?

- Did Pieter Jan know who the Mole was?
- We compare Japan notes.
- Should Sanne have worn a suit?
- Could Production have invested in some actual technology for the laser game?

- Was it necessary to hide the Japanese controller’s voice?
- Did the weather stop Frits winning the laser game?
- Was Hind given an advantage by being on her own?
- Were they told they had to use the jokers this week?
- Is the joker negotiation forgettable?
- Does the Mole care about the final challenge?
