Wie is de Mol? - The Mole (TV series) - Netflix
The Mole is a reality television game show which was originally created in 1998 by Woestijnvis and broadcast on VRT in Belgium as De Mol. It was conceived by Michiel Devlieger, Bart de Pauw, Tom Lenaerts and Michel Vanhove, and won the famous Rose d'Or award in Montreux, Switzerland, in 2000. The format has been licensed in 40 countries from all around the world. Players in The Mole must work together to complete various physical and mental challenges to build up a significant cash prize for the winner. One of them, however, is “the Mole”, a double agent hired by the producers to sabotage the efforts of the group. The Mole must be careful to avoid drawing too much suspicion to himself or herself. Using journals, players must track vast amounts of data about the person(s) they suspect of being the Mole, such as seating positions, clothing colors, minor discussion topics, and so on. The quiz at the end of each episode tests players' knowledge of the Mole, and determines by lowest score (or slowest time, in the event of a tie) who is eliminated from the game.
Wie is de Mol? - United Kingdom - Netflix
The show had two series in the United Kingdom, hosted by Glenn Hugill on Channel 5. Despite its cult following and despite adverts to appear in the next series appearing at the end of the second, a third series was not commissioned. Both series had a special episode at the end detailing the various clues about the Mole's identity, and general details on the production of the show. The top prize is £200,000 (about US$396,000). According to host Glenn Hugill, Paul received an unspecified share of Chris's prize money since they had become good friends over the course of the show. Contestant Dafydd Williams, eliminated in the semi-finals, also received a small amount of the prize money.
