If you haven’t heard yet, the new season of De Mol started two weeks ago!
A team of 10 Flemish people who’ve never met before, set out on a mission in South Africa. By completing crazy physical and mental challenges, they gather money for the group. But one of them is a double agent, who secretly tries to sabotage the missions. One of them is De Mol.
Every week, the candidates have to answer 20 questions about De Mol. The person who has least correct answers, is eliminated. The person who manages to unmask De Mol and answers most questions about him/her in the end, is the winner and takes the money home.
