Who says honesty always pays? On The Mole, a Netflix series, lying and deceiving others gets you a $30,000 cash prize. It’s certainly not a game for those who can’t lie like its season 1 contestant Kesi Neblett.
So, who’s Kesi? Get to know this participant better as this Kesi Neblett Bio proceeds.
Kesi Neblett On Netflix’s The Mole
Netflix’s The Mole season 1 premiered on October 7, 2022, and it saw a cast of 12 players including Kesi who knew they’d have to lie and deceive others if they wanted to stay in the game. And just like in the original Mole series on ABC, there was one designated secret saboteur (the mole), whom the rest of the contestants had to unmask.
According to Kesi, she was bound to figure the mole out because she was a computer scientist, meaning she was a deep analytical thinker. “With time and observation, I can profile people fairly accurately,” she added.
However, to do that, she’d had to stay in the game! And for someone whose greatest weakness is lying, it wasn’t going to be an easy feat.
Talking more about her weakness, she said, “My weakness is that I’m not always quick on my feet. I don’t consider myself a sneaky, good liar. I have learned that when you lie, someone always gets hurt.”
Overall, her main strategy in the game was to be the team labrador — trustworthy, kind, and non-threatening.
