Axel Pailler (40), the Chapels of ‘The mole’ won. Initially hoped the pilot to take part as a mole. ‘Then I mustn’t have been, once or twice, that was a blow in my face.’ But end good all good. He goes home with 34.050 euros in prize money.

Winner Axel: ‘Elizabeth is on my radar come. They hopped everywhere in between, with her small, cute appearance and her cheerful self. Very unobtrusively. And then to see that the woman that I never suspected had suddenly suspect number 1 … That takes time. It means that they play the game on a penalty played.’
When you had Elizabeth?
“I was apparently the very first. On the bootproef (in the fourth episode, ed.). We had that morning in the sea swim on that desert island. Bruno had said: I dive and swim like. And the only thing Elizabeth said: Dirty, dirty water, no nothing for me. When it was decided: two candidates go into the cabin, the rest goes into the water. If there is another mole was, that Elizabeth still thrown into the water? In the assumption that they are then in a panic would shoot. No, what happens? Elisabet together with Bruno in the cabin. That’s when I knew: that’s not true.’
‘In the next trial was my suspicion confirmed. At the survivalopdracht pasted them to the lowest amount of 100 euro on her head. My thought: Elizabeth, now challenges me. Had a higher amount, so we would earn money for the prize pool? Yet I was not 100 percent sure, because others are generous in their comments left. Kaat also did things where I ask questions. Until they also uitvloog. When it was clear to me: Elizabeth is the mole.’
Have you ever Bas suspicious?
‘On the first elimination I had said to him – to put him to the test: We see each other in the final. That is true. Bass can have such a look in his eyes, you see when he’s lying. He will then zenuwtrekjes above his eyes, pulls on his ears, his head started to move. That’s when I knew: Bass can’t possibly be the mole. I have told him so right off. Martijn and Bruno also. Yuri, I just suspected. I came so automatically at the women.’
Bass suspected also Elizabeth.
“I had the benefit of two exemptions had been given. He thus has two times the questionnaire is not completed. Because some questions came, I could quickly fill in.’
Would you be a good mole to have been?
It turns out not. Because my lie about the rabbit (in the preliminary rounds, ed.) was not strong enough. I had perhaps the mole could be, but I had a thorough preparation is needed. That was this year impossible.”
“Three weeks before departure I was told that I would go along as a candidate, while I had hoped that I would be chosen as the mole. That was a blow in my face. Bam! I had me all over it, when we were in Vietnam arrived. It turned out that they have a mole had to choose. Would I still be able to be? That screen was the second blow in a short time.’
Not jealous that the creators Elizabeth have chosen?
“I think they are more jealous on my money.’
What are you going to with your prize money of 34.050 euro do?
‘Da’a lot, an awful lot of money, hey! I picture me in: you can spend it on cars and houses, but you can put that in the mash to drive, or who can set it on fire shoot. I invest rather in experiences. In travel for example. What I sure would like to organise a weekend away with the group of 10 participants. We alone, with our tens. Together, sleep together, breakfast together. As in Vietnam, our experiences to keep alive. That costs money, of course, and someone must be on the table. I so.’
Some ex-winners also gave money to a charity.
‘That is what I do. By Brussels Airlines (Axel is a pilot, ed.) I do long-haul flights, so I am often in Africa, am. A stewardess in Liberia, an orphanage and a school established. That, I would definitely support. Elisabet and Bass will be, maybe, my ears saw to get something. And Kaat, is that also a good goal? If they have a pocket money wants to step in Leuven: bel Axel!’
