Sundays from March 10th,
Vier – official site
And so we come to the highlight of the year (and it’s only March), as Dutch Mole finishes Belgian Mole begins. And this time: there is no Mole.
At least not at the very start, one will be chosen through a challenge. And this year Belgium’s Smartest Man Gilles de Coster has taken everyone to Vietnam.
Who are our ten contestants?
From left to right, top to bottom:
- Axel – 40 years old and a pilot.
- Bas – 32 and a headhunter.
- Bruno – 54, a business manager.
- Elisabet – 34, a doctor.
- Eva – 28 and a lawyer.
- Ingrid – 46, sells blinds.
- Joeri – 32, a team boss.
- Kaat – 22, physiotherapy student
- Liesbeth – 41, a consultant.
- Martijn – 23, a facility assistant
An average age of 35.2, slightly younger than last year (38) but still pretty old for this sort of thing.
As of right now we have no idea if there are going to be English subtitles available anywhere – if not I expect we’ll muddle through but miss out on a lot of context. We ask our international friends not to spoil episodes until the English subs have gone up.
I’m intrigued to find out how they’re going to do the hidden clues if they don’t know who the Mole is going to be at the start. Do they have ten sets ready? Add things in post? I look forward to finding out.
