De Mol made her television debut at age 12 in Wat je zegt ben je zelf, a programme made by children for AVRO.

In 1984, she resurfaced on Sky Channel, hosting music programmes such as Coca-Cola Eurochart Top 50 and In touch with the Dutch (some of Endemol's first productions). From 1986 onwards, De Mol announced cartoons on The DJ Kat Show named after her feline sidekick played by US-exile puppeteer Robbie Hahn. In 1990, some of the scripts for Billy Hot Dog were re-written and shown on TROS' Wednesday evening slot.

De Mol went on to present shows and quizzes, such as Miljoenenjacht (the original version of Deal or No Deal), De Slimste, and M/V. From 2005 until 2009, De Mol starred in the weekly drama series Gooische Vrouwen on RTL4 (originally on Tien).
