Who is THE MOLE? Who Won THE MOLE?

The following post reveals spoilers for the season finale of THE MOLE. Stop reading if you don’t want to know.
THE MOLE is probably the only reality game show where the reveal of the winner isn’t the biggest news of the show. But after weeks of wondering just who was sabotaging the game play of the other contestants, everyone was dying to find out just who was The Mole.
And tonight it was revealed. But before we get to it I guess we should announce the winner.
The winner of this season of THE MOLE and the identity of THE MOLE after the jump.
The winner of THE MOLE going home with a purse of $420,000 is….
It was revealed tonight that the school teacher and soccer coach who hoped to win the big prize so his wife could be a stay at home mom was almost out of the game a number of times throughout the competition. Beating his opponents at time by just mere seconds, Mark pulled it out with some great game play and a little bit of luck to win this season of THE MOLE.
But just who was the devious folk mucking it up for all the other players. Well believe it or not it was…
Yes, the funny guy from San Diego who put himself out there as everyone’s best friend was revealed to be the biggest mole of them all. Craig used his sense of humor, his wit, his intellect and even his physical attributes to outsmart all the other contestants…well except for Mark. Actually no one even suspected Craig as the mole until Week 7 of the game when Paul caught on to his game. Nice work.
I’ll admit it, I didn’t see Craig as the mole. I didn’t want to. I was fooled like everybody else into thinking that there was no way this guy could pull it off. I sorely underestimated him. Congrats Craig!
But you do know what this means, right? It means that Nicole is as obnoxious as she appeared to be. All her stupid comments and many, many slipups during the game weren’t the result of sabotage in as much as it was her own stupidity. I’m being harsh but Nicole (and Paul) were two of the reasons that I disliked this season so much. Their obnoxious personalities only took away from the enjoyment of the game…even if they claimed it was part of their strategy. I don’t by it.
As for this season, well I can’t say that it lived up to my expectations. As I’ve said all along, the casting killed it for me. I’m glad I watched because I’d be shocked if THE MOLE is back for another season and I guess I’m glad that I saw it before it was too late. But for those of you who just watched for the first time I think you were a bit cheated. Maybe it’s my rose colored glasses (or thoughts of first MOLE host Anderson Cooper) but I just found previous seasons much more enjoyable.
But that’s that. Congrats to Mark and Craig! And that’s a wrap on this season of THE MOLE.
