Episode #476 – De Mol België Arizona Finale Recap

Interrupt a selfie session, 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 Arizona! 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 have never been failed for swearing in public – Logan & I – have been attempting to uncover the truth behind the lies and who will be replacing us halfway through the season, continuing with the eighth episode and reveal of Comfort as Mole!

In this episode:
