(SPOILER) Said Keeping Their Identity as the Mole a Secret Was "Really Tough" (EXCLUSIVE)
Who is the Mole? (SPOILER) shared exclusive details about the Season 1 finale of the Netflix reboot. Plus, the winner was revealed!
Spoiler alert: This article contains major spoilers for Season 1 of The Mole.
Betrayal isn’t always a bad thing, and this is especially true for contestants on the Netflix reboot of The Mole, where backstabbing is the name of the game. This fall, Netflix revived the widely popular ABC competition game show more than a decade after the series was canceled.
The Mole returned to the small screen on Oct. 7 and introduced viewers to the cast members vying to take home the win. Heading into the finale, only three contestants remained.
Ahead of Decision Day, Season 1 finalists Will Richardson, Joi Schweitzer, and Kesi Neblett were given one last mission, bringing the total prize pot to a total of $101,500. However, before the winner could be revealed, contestants still had one final question to answer: Who is the Mole?
Kesi shared exclusive details about the explosive finale in an exclusive interview with Distractify. Here’s what she said!
You guessed it! (SPOILER) was the Mole all along!
In The Mole, the cast is challenged to work together to complete a series of challenges. This sounds easy enough until you consider the undercover agent put in place to sabotage them.
After nine grueling eliminations, the finale episode saw all 12 contestants gather to learn the truth. Finally, the Mole was identified as none other than 27-year-old New York City native Kesi. And according to her, the big reveal couldn’t have come sooner.
During her chat with Distractify, Kesi recalled her thoughts in the final moments before her secret was uncovered. “I was like, It's time. I don’t have to lie anymore. I can just tell people, ‘This is it. This is me. This is the person you've been looking for. Let's just talk about it,'" she told us.
Season 1’s Kesi Neblett said keeping her identity a secret on ‘The Mole’ was “really tough.”
Although Kesi made being the Mole look easy, the Season 1 saboteur is living proof that looks can be deceiving.
“I think the most difficult part might have been the beginning. I did not know these guys, I had no idea. I had 11 new people on my hands,” Kesi said, adding, “I didn't know what they were thinking. I didn't know how to maneuver them. And that was really tough.”
Kesi wasn’t blind to her castmates’ suspicions, which only intensified as the Season 1 finale drew nearer. “[In Episode 5], when I dropped the bag on the train, you see me squat down. I was genuinely sad because I was thinking to myself, ‘How am I going to explain this?'”
While Kesi admittedly had her missteps early in the competition, she eventually found her footing. “Because I'm the law,” Kesi insisted. “So when you mess up, it's OK, because, at the end of it, the outcome is the same.”
