Episode #443 – Wie is de Mol 2010 Episode 4 Recap

Murder that potato chip, 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 try to make you feel uncomfortable enough till you pay – Logan & I – are going back through the archives to discuss a very special season that both of us love – continuing with the fourth episode and elimination of Barbara.

In this week’s recap:

  • Frits takes a rare heel turn.
  • We feel like casual fans.
  • Something Tyler Perry did gets praise.
  • I’ve been wrestling with the Japanese language.
  • Logan gets distracted.
  • The editors bury Frits.
  • Have the contestants ever just banded together at the start of a season to expose the Mole?
  • Did Frits show his hand at lunch?
  • Does anyone go into a season of the Mole not wanting to win?
  • Has Erik seen a mobile phone before?
  • We talk about a challenge they’d never do again.
  • Should Pieter Jan have gone all Good Will Hunting?
  • Has there been anyone who is more of an unlikely villain than Frits?
  • Do we remember Japan being this fractious?
  • We meet a sibling of Episode 1’s Kimono Girl.
  • What will Frits do if Erik is the Mole?
  • Chain Gang holds a record (we think).

  • An old Mole adage returns for the stretcher challenge.
  • Is it more fun to make them do the conversion?
  • Did the team of three underperform?

  • There is a quick tour through Chain Gang history.
  • Would Frits have still taken the exemption if Chain Gang was all-or-nothing?
  • Logan learns about one of our Patreon tiers.
  • Does letting people free themselves first make them more likely to take the exemption?
  • Should Chain Gang be an every-season challenge?
  • Was Barbara silly for not taking the exemption?
  • Is Chain Gang enough of a reason to choose a particular Historians season?
  • Was there a lack of foresight with the location of Chain Gang?
  • Was there an off-air timer?
  • Frits loses his leverage.
  • Was Barbara a Barb-gain?
  • Does the Mole need to do much in Chain Gang?
  • Would Frits have ever given up his exemption?
  • Barbara doesn’t even get a montage.
  • Why are so many people underedited this season?
  • Would we want to be friends with Pieter Jan?
