- How do you feel in the animation exercise for your fifth edition of “Ninja Warrior”?

Iris Mittenaère.


Since 2018, time has really passed very quickly and I have evolved a lot.

I like the role that I hold in the show, it is benevolent.

I am both the big sister and the best friend to the participants and their loved ones.

This proximity allows me to have the most spontaneous reactions possible and real moments of emotion.

In five years, I find the candidates who try their luck again and it gives an almost family atmosphere between us.

Every year, I come back with pleasure in “Ninja Warrior”.

Do you meet the participants before they enter the game to establish a first contact?

It is essential for me to know them beforehand, I must be able to quickly identify them and their loved ones when their turn comes in “Ninja Warrior”.

I work a lot upstream and I learn the candidates' sheets almost by heart.

And I always have this frustration to see them fall because I have empathy for what they experience in the game. Whether they succeed or lose, I am the first to welcome their reaction hot , be it joy or sadness.

At the end of the season, when we have a winner, I want to cry with him!

Only in “Ninja Warrior” you can experience such emotions.

Do you want to retry "Ninja Warrior" one day?

Already, I would like everyone to forget that I have already participated!

(Laughs.) I was the reigning Miss France at the time and my appearance in “Ninja Warrior” must have lasted about three and a half seconds.

I would like to try again even if I am aware that my abilities will not allow me to overcome many obstacles.

We do not necessarily realize the difficulty and the immensity of the course, it is very physical.

And when you fall, the water is cold!

“I would be for a version or an finale of “Ninja Warrior” devoted entirely to women”

Iris Mittenaère

The final of “Ninja Warrior” opposes each year very mainly men.

Would you be in favor of a 100% female edition of the game?

Every year, there is always at least one woman in the "Ninja Warrior" final, but that's still very few.

I would definitely be for a version dedicated to women or a final dedicated to the best candidates of the season.

This would allow us to have each year, a female winner of "Ninja Warrior" and a male winner in another final.

It is true that obstacles require a lot of strength and this tends to favor men.

But every season we have women who shine, like Maurane Jelic for example.

Apart from "Ninja Warrior", would you like to dedicate yourself to other shows, on television or on the radio?

I had loved hosting a singles radio special for Valentine's Day.

I'm drawn to programs that look like me, where I just stay me.

I have nothing else planned in the coming months on television but, if I am offered a project that I like, I will go 100%.

What will your year 2023 look like?

There is no routine in my life, I do lots of different things: trips, shootings, creations with the Morgan brand with which I collaborate... You will soon see me on the posters of the Paris metro for my Oceans Apart sports collection that I also designed.

A few months ago, I presented the Miss Philippines ceremony.

And I spend a lot of time managing my social networks, I exchange with my subscribers, I talk about my daily life, my feelings...

"The question of the baby requires a lot of thought"

Iris Mittenaère

You have more than 3 million subscribers on Instagram, are the brands you promote necessarily in partnership with you?

Not necessarily, I manage my Instagram account alone and I put my personal content there.

For collaborations, I work with my agency, which belongs to Diego (her fiancé, editor's note), as I could do under a modeling contract.

I am free to accept or refuse what is offered to me.

I find it very important to only offer things that I have tested and that I like.

Too many people on Instagram use their influence to highlight products they've never used, don't necessarily like, and maybe don't even work.

It's important for me to be as true and honest as possible by standing out from that.

For cosmetics, I test them at least three weeks before talking about them.

I have the certificate of

2023 will also be

the year of your marriage to Diego el Glaoui, your companion


We have openly shared this news indeed, it is being prepared and I discover that it is quite considerable.

I did not expect that !

(Laughs.) When I was told that it took at least a year to prepare a wedding, I didn't really understand why.

Now that I'm there, I understand.

It's a lot of happiness, stress and a big organization.

I can't wait to live that moment.

What does marriage mean to you?

It's a commitment, it means I chose you and you chose me, we're going to do whatever it takes to end our life together.

We are a team.

For me, it's very important and it's important for him too.

It's a pact that you make with your other half to never let go and stick together despite the ups and downs that we will encounter.

Marriage is remembering in difficult times that we promised to go through with it together.

There is a question that comes up a lot among your subscribers and that sometimes annoys you...

... It's the baby!

(Laughs.) This is a question that requires a lot of thought, it must be a shared will.

People, even if they are always benevolent in their approach, do not always realize the pressure that is put on women as they approach their 30s until they have a child.

Personally, I can't take this pressure anymore.

Yes, I would like to have children but there are many things to take into account before starting.

I often think about it because people talk to me about it all the time.
