Second season of The Mole now on Hulu, even though it’s not on DVD

My love for the first two seasons of The Mole will never die. Both season one and the first celebrity season are on DVD, but season two has been ignored except for a rebroadcast on Fox Reality.

Having offered the entire first season free starting this summer, Hulu has just added season two, subtitled “The Next Betrayal.” It started with a really awful challenge that seemed to change the tone of the series, but recovered quickly enough.

Here’s the first episode of season two, the last season hosted by Anderson Cooper, who deserves a retroactive best reality show host Emmy (what other hosts eat dinner with their casts?):

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight
