contestant forgot he was on Mole 2.
The Mole 2 was pulled from ABC’s schedule last fall even though the show had completed production last summer. Now, almost a year after the series was filmed, one of the contestants says he “totally forgot that I was ever on the show.” Rob Nelson has “moved on,” according to his mother, although Rob says that the cast members and winner won’t get paid until all episodes air, so regardless of his standing he’s owed some money. So does this mean he’s not the mole or the winner, or is he just faking us out?
+ also: Mole 2 starts slowly, gaining viewers during its second hour.
