I'm new here. welcome to me and hello to you all
MY observations are based on the contestants personalities, reactions, and interactions with each other. Using process of elimination, I am going to break my logic down... Bare with me if I sound stupid - this is my first posting of this kind.
I cant believe the theory mentioned in a previous post "What if the clues are pointing to who is NOT the Mole." Impossible to point that out unless its all done in post production.... I don't think there was enough time for the writers and producers to come up with that type of ingenuity from December 07 (when it was decided that the writer's strike was the reason why the Mole was brought back into production) up to the actual start of filming - March 08. 3 months or so of preproduction does NOT give enough time to be that ingenious. Pointing out who the Mole is, instead of who the mole isn't, is much much easier for the producers.
I like the clues about Craig but I'm not convinced - yet. There are more clues that were shown in the opening credits that mean nothing right now, but may end up meaning something later. The Chicago 12/5/1970 clue - well no one in the game is 38 (?) years old so is that a clue to throw us off or does that mean something?
Paul - cant be the mole - he is too hyped up on finding the mole, too excited about getting the exemption in the pig, to hot headed to be the mole. (the real mole is better off playing it cool and calm while making small plays to sabotage the team). A typical New Yorker - not a problem though as I am one too!
Bobby - strong possibility as being the mole because he either 1) is faking his health to slow down the team, or 2) has a legitimate physical disability that is throwing us all off.
Craig - maybe - the other entries/clues pointing out Craig as a possible mole could be applied to him or other contestants - not too clear. The only thing about him that makes me think he "could" be the mole is the way his demeanor is, how he acts and reacts. He is very calm, cool and collected - very similar to the way Bill was in the first season of Mole. However one thing that sticks in my mind is that he is always talking about how Nicole should have been executed instead of "enter name". Reason to think he is not the mole - why fix the sling shot even if he knows how, if he is the mole? Only to throw off the other contestants or if he really is not the mole.
Alex - No way - not the mole. He used Spanish fluently to converse with the townspeople to find almost all of the pigs they could before running out of time. If he were the mole, he would have 1) used his Spanish skills to direct the team in the wrong direction, 2) never even would have admitted to knowing Spanish at all. He could have done what bobby did "me llama bobby" - very funny by the way!
Mark - Very possible. He pushed that bike up that long hill to earn an exemption. Either way, if he is or is not the mole, it was in his best interest to win. If he won, he got an exemption, if he lost, the team got $35,000.
Kristen - very possible. See above Mark comment. Same thing applies
Clay and Ali ? For me, Clay is much like Bill was - quite. Kept to himself. Etc..
Victoria... originally, she was quite, keeping to herself , no clear clues to point me in either direction with one BIG exception... Victoria is now getting on Paul's back because of his remarks about Bobby. Victoria is feeling bad about Bobby being attacked by Paul and is coming to Bobby's defense. If Victoria WAS the mole, would she really come to the defense of another contestant? I think not.
Im still wondering what the E_E_E means - even if its eleven, then what? Eleven what? hard to tell right now. Just read a post above, Craid's bio mentions "heart". I think that is too obvious.
