The Mole: Episode 1 Discussion
« on: June 02, 2008, 12:35:58 PM »
This is the thread to discuss Episode 1 both as it happens and afterward.

While we will NOT post any spoiler info here deliberately (RIGHT everybody? :lol:), discussion and pointing out of clues is fair game, although a more indepth analysis of the clues and the challenges will also be ongoing here:
http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=15540.0

And as always, our west coast viewers may (or may not! ;)) want to avoid this thread until they have seen the show themselves.

I noticed one contestant had the mole print on her helmet during the falls challenge, then the others following her did not.

Were there others with the mole print on their helmet and I just missed it?  If not, it was a very obvious clue far too early in the game.

I noticed that too on Victoria's head.  I doubt it'd be that obvious either.

Ummm... I vote for "not doing to well as a group."

They don't need the mole.  They are sabotaging themselves by not communicating.

They have to find the 5 out of 45 items items on the beach that Selkirk ( ie Crusoe :lol:) had with him in 17 something..

scavengers bring the items

Appraisers have 3 chances to choose the 5

Timekeepers have to keep filling the hourglass

each item =$5000

guys not really running. :snicker:

They've gotten 3 out of 5 items (a musket, a goat, and a Bible - they missed a box of tobacco and a copper tea pot) for an additional $15,000. (total=$35,000)

Nicole gets to stay on Exile Island (the beach) and, I'm assuming, miss the quiz.

I like the new touch screen so much better than Anderson Cooper's painfully slow typing.  Very sleek and a nice update to the game.

So what did y'all think? A good start? What about Kelley as host?

I loved the locations, thought the challenge was fun and creative, and **sigh** I miss Anderson... :'(

The only thing that I don't like about Kelley is his voice overs, not so much a good fit with the show.  But he seems to have the hosting talent Cooper had, so I'll give him credit where credit is due.

I liked Kelley, change is good. I thought he seemed relax and showed his own personality, he was being himself.

I would have liked to see more interaction of the contestants, a 2 hour premiere would have been fine with me.  :funny:

I wasn't that impressed with the show and think maybe you are right 2 hours would have made it much better.  I'll keep up with it but it has to get much better in order to keep me interested.  It was too fast and not enough depth!  And by the looks of these bumbling idiots 1/2 of them could be the mole  :funny:  That was a joke so please don't get mad!  :lol:

As the number of players drops, you get more depth each show.

And it's true about 1/2 of them acting like bumbling idiots, but even for the non-mole players, they want to throw off the others so they'll intentionally make mistakes. If they have someone else convinced they're the mole, that's one more person that'll get kicked off before them.

Hi Bugsy!

Ya as I was typing that I was thinking when the pool of people goes down the show will probably get much more interesting so I guess I'll show one of my virtues and be patient because I really do love the show!  :js:

Jon Kelly seems much better than Ahmad Rashad (then again, that's probably not too hard to do) but there aren't many people who can touch Anderson Cooper.  I remember his comment in Season 2 to Ali and Patrick, "Come on down!  You're the next contestants on Public Humiliation!"   :funny:

 :waves: Hello Everyone! so glad that the mole is on  BUT it wasn't satisfying for me! I guess i had high hopes that the first episode would WOW me.  but of course that may take some time since ABC wants to see if they have the ratings after their 4 yr nap!

As far as the contestants go, I am gonna say that they guy from Yonkers is the mole strictly because i lived there for over 20 yrs and never met one person that was "stand up and truthful!" and being from the Bronx  I can say it's the worst attribute  that Yonkers has!

I look forward to hearing everyone's input and glad to be back on the board ! :waves:

I enjoyed the first episode!  I like the concept that no one can gang up on someone to evict them - it is determined by how well they are catching the clues and figuring things out.  I do miss Anderson Cooper though.  Jon Kelly is still in a trial period for me!   :funny:

Not sure if Paul is from Yonkers but that is who I am thinking it is.  During the execution he just seemed way to phoney to me with his relief over being safe!

yes Twinkletoes Paul is from Yonkers. I swear there's something in the water over there that makes MOST of the people I have met either  socially or work that I always say to them" what the !@#$% is wrong with you? how do you process things!Where are you VALUES and MORALS!" :pull  In his bio it says he doesn't know when to shut up. another typical trait! LOL And how he came across on the tv was just cocky and untrusting to me.

 I do miss Anderson Cooper as the host!

During the introduction as the narrator is walking along the water fall he soon begins to talk about the Mole. You then see pictures of buildings as he is talking. It's kinda hard to see because it flashes by so fast but as the narrator says "One of them is being paid to deceive" a message flashes across the left side of the screen for a split second. I was able to find the intro on You Tube (The mole Season 5 open). I slowed the picture done as much as I could. The message is hard to read but I think one of the words is 'Chicago'. There also seems to be a date 12.7.1970. Not sure if this is a clue or if the producers are trying to deceive us.

The message is hard to read...
I tried to get the best caps I could in this album (stats1 and stats2). The Chicago one can be read, but the Los Angeles one is a little fuzzier. There are also some other caps from the episode and promos.
