The MOLE…Anyone Still Watching?

August 5, 2008 by  

The Mole

Am I the only one still watching THE MOLE?  Talk about a show that didn’t live up to my expectations.  I was so excited for the long awaited return of what was once one of my favorite game/reality shows, but sadly this season was mostly a bust thanks to the casting of some truly obnoxious people.

If you’re still watching then you know that Craig, Mark and Nicole still remain.  In last night’s episode they took the final quiz.  Next week The Mole will be revealed and someone could walk away with $420,000.

Here’s the deal…if The Mole is not Nicole then she should be super embarrased for playing such a horrible game.  For a Doctor, he has shown her self incapable of the easiest of tasks throughtout the season.  For her sake I really hope that she’s been sabotaging herself in order to wn the big prize.

At this point I don’t really care if it’s Mark or Craig that wins. I guess I like Craig a little more than Mark so I’d like to see him take home the money.  As long as it’s not Nicole I don’t really care.

To be honest, I thought tonight’s episode was the finale.  Is it wrong that I am bummed that I have to sit through a whole other episode next week?  Ugh.

If you’re still watching…talk to me.  Who do you think is The Mole?

    This is the first season I have watched of the Mole and I thought it was ok. I’m not sure if I would watch another season or not. I agree with you about not wanting Nicole to win. She was really annoying. Especially in last night’s episode when she didn’t get a flag for the picture.

    This is my first time watching The Mole as well so I don’t have better seasons to compare it to. I have enjoyed it but I also hate Nicole. I totally agree that if she’s not the mole than she is the worst player ever.

    I think the mole could be Mark just because he is the most unexpected person.

    I thought this season of The Mole got off to a really slow start, but I’ve actually been loving it lately. The challenges at the beginning were stupid–many were purely physical in nature without any mental component. A lot of the recent challenges have been cool–the paintball one last week, the bomb detonator this week. The characters have really grown on me, too–I love Nicole–she consistently cracks me up. Craig annoys me, but I understand he’s an interesting character. I really respect Mark–he plays the game really well–I hope (and assume) he will win. It’s unusual to see his level of integrity on reality television.

    I’d imagine the Mole is Craig, not Nicole or Mark–although the editing lately has been making it too obviously Craig, which, of course, makes me think they are trying to mislead us.

    I’ve been watching it – and paying attention to the message boards on abc.com. It’s not as good as season 1 (I haven’t watched all of season 2). I liked season 1 because more of the games weren’t explained all the way, and the best games were the ones that the players didn’t know what they had to do. For example, the one where Steve gets kidnapped, and the one in which the 3 remaining players had to get out of their hotel rooms.

    I agree about the players – I really don’t like any of the ones that are left. But I’m definitely hoping that Nicole doesn’t win and isn’t the mole. I don’t want her to have the satisfaction of doing well at anything. She’s been really shady about her job, too. All of her information says she’s an OBGYN, but during one episode, she mentioned how she does laproscopic surgery… first off, her information seems inconsistent. In addition, I would not trust her at all for anything medical – she’s too abrasive and incompetent.

    I’ve been watching randomly. I, too, was really excited when I saw it was coming back but it hasn’t lived up to my expectations. I don’t think it’s Nicole mainly because it seems way too obvious with her jerk-ocity and obvious sabotage methods. Seems like she’s trying too hard and the mole should be more discreet than that. I’m split between Craig and Mark. I’d be content with either one winning. I feel like Craig may be the mole just because he gives off that nice guy vibe and it would be more unexpected. I thought yesterday was the finale too. Now next week it’ll be 55 minutes of recap and 5 to tell who the winner is. Lame sauce.

    I’m still watching!
    I’m not impressed either, believe me.
    I think the mole is Craig, ’cause he knew exactly where that bridge was last night, && he didn’t get there in time. it’s a little suspicious.

    I watched the original Mole seasons and I remember thinking how amazing they were, although now I can barely remember anything about them. This season is definitely not as good, but it has intrigued me. I really think Craig is the Mole, especially now that he keeps suspecting Mark is the Mole, which I think is completely wrong. I hope Mark wins because he seems like a nice guy and he has that big family to look after. But if Nicole ends up being the Mole that wouldn’t really surprise me, as long as she doesn’t win the money.

    This season has been kind of lame. I liked it with Anderson Cooper a lot better, but John is cool. I think it’s craig but only because they have never called his name for execution, some one always gets kicked off before they get to his name and I think its so you can’t see his reation. But I’ve guessed who the mole is ever week and every week I’m wrong.

    I actually really like this show! It’s like the Amazing Race…except not as rushed. You get to know the contestants…something I appreciate. Of course, this is the first season I have ever seen this show, I’m sad that it’s getting such low ratings.

    I think Craig is the Mole. I just do.

    I don’t think this years’ Mole was that disappointing, but it’s probably because it’s been several years since the last Mole and the last Mole was the atrocious Celebrity Mole. I’m counting my blessings.

    My dad thinks it’s Nicole (for her sake, it should be), my mom thinks it’s Mark,
    and I think it’s Craig (never thought I’d be saying that).

    And I agree, I sure hope Nicole’s just sabotaging herself to bring suspicion on herself, because it’s just so sad her incompetence (I’m going to guess 50% of it is strategy, 50% is true incompetence).

    I thought it was the finale, too, but it’s almost always split into the finale challenges & quiz and the reveal and hidden clues show. Don’t know why I thought it’d be any different this year.

    It wasn’t as good as the first seasons, but I still liked it.
    Craig is the Mole.
    Mark will win.

    I really loved the first season, but I kind of lost track after that. I can’t imagine having a different host, even though Anderson kind of creeped me out. I should really start watching again to see how it’s changed.

    i miss the pale one. sooo much. the previous seasons were MILES ahead of this one. i’ve been watching, but not as impressed as i once was. i truly believe the pale one brought something untouchable to the table. jon kelley is nice and all… but the coop… miss him.

    my money is on mark. and lordy lordy if it’s nicole… oy vey.
