The Mole
8 March 2013 | by lars_hendrikxSee all my reviews

Wie is de mol?(Who is the mole) is an exciting game show I have personally followed for years and hopefully will watch for many more to come. Wie is de mol? is an exciting and thrilling show about 10 people competing for the prize money, the money the contestants earn from completing assignments in every episode. From that group of 10 people 1 person is "The Mole" with the sole target to sabotage assignments while not incriminating him/herself, thus stopping the money flow and decreasing the prize money.

After every episode the contestants get a test. In this test they are answered 20 questions about the identity of the mole. The person with the least amount of answers right has to leave the show. The contestants have to be smart and very observant to pick up on who might be the mole and not to be left in the dark about his/her identity. Incriminating yourself is actually a good thing to do here for a contestant, seeing people would think you're the mole and would focus their answers on you, forcing them to eliminate themselves from the game. Deciding whether to incriminate yourself by messing up assignments or to make more money is only one of the many dilemmas contestants face during their journey.

Every year when this show is on (January-March) people start discussing who the mole might be and the final conclusion is Always watched by millions of people. This is a show that grabs you, takes you in and doesn't let go. The assignments and challenges the contestants encounter, the battle between them and the alliances they form, it's a big riddle. Who is the mole is, in my opinion, one of the best Dutch shows to date.
