Netflix’s reboot of The Mole excited diehard fans of the reality TV show from the early 2000s. Viewers loved the deception of contestants like Jacob Hacker and Avori Henderson. Although fans were shocked pilot Joi Schweitzer couldn’t figure out Kesi Nesblett was the mole, leading some to speculate The Mole is scripted, viewers were happy for Will Richardson winning the prize money. But after the show filmed throughout Australia and aired, what happened to The Mole cast back in the real world? Here’s what the twelve contestants Will, Avori, Casey, Dom, Greg, Jacob, Joi, Kesi, Osei, Pranav, Samara, Sandy are up to in 2023 since the show aired in October 2022.

The Chris Hemsworth as Thor lookalike never wavered in competing as hard as he could on The Mole. William “Will” Richardson won the $101,500 prize money after correctly identifying Kesi as the one secretly sabotaging missions throughout the show.
After the win, Will stayed pretty tight-lipped in media interviews shortly after the final episode of The Mole aired. However, on January 17, Will let fans know he’s starring in a new Netflix reality TV show called Perfect Match.
