The Chris Underwood Situation
Wish Daniel Peake a Happy Groundhog Day (no, for real - @danielpeake), because a new decade of Reality TV Warriors begins with Wie is de Mol 2024: Les 9 Atouts du Rik van der Westelaken - and WIDM continues following België's lead and heads back to Mexico! Over these ten weeks, three guys who often grab a takeaway box and sing about how three taquitos make a taco - Michael, Logan & Bindles - are recapping and breaking down everything that happens on the show's return to Mexico in our twentieth Mole season, continuing with the fifth episode and elimination of Jeroen!
In this episode - we have a Gamble to contend with, this week's banner may be slightly obvious, we stay spoiler-free, there is the update that everyone's been waiting for, Logan vies for the First Suspicions crown, Michael wonders if Jip & Justin were actually in their boxes, we may start looking at Rosario, a perennial rant returns, we sift through the logic of the first challenge, Michael has a reputation, it all goes a bit Amazing Race podcasts, yet another unaired answer is revealed, a final four is almost confirmed, there is a brief sojourn into The Challenge, we wonder if the Mole needed to take a minus amount, the envelope distribution is puzzled out, Rian's reason for not going home is revealed, we again wish Daniel Peake a Happy Groundhog Day, Bindles notices something about the executions, there are the latest updates to the Pool and First Suspicions, we try and guess who's going home next and lock in our fifth set of suspicions and we again wish Daniel Peake a Happy Groundhog Day.
You can play along with this week's Bother's Bar Suspect List here. We will see you next week for Episode 6!
Please note: This episode is intended on being spoiler-free, but references to any season we have already covered (WIDM 10-11, 14, 17-23 and Renaissance; België 4-11) may be made. Additionally, the actual episode does include an extensive cameo by the Mole from Season 8, but we do not discuss specifics of this in our recap to keep it spoiler-free. There are also references to Mole Australia 4 and WIDM 2, 5 & 7 and Germany 5's twists in this episode, as well as Germany 5's Mole being discussed.
Additional note: Can you believe we still have seven candidates left with only three executions? There are no good options to resolve it!
