Étienne did Étienne

This time, the one who had chosen to give up during his adventure, did not come back to participate but to be the handicap of the pair of unknowns made up of Angie and Nathalie.

Throughout the duration of the stage, he had to find cars and homes for their trio but also participate in the various challenges.

A tailor-made role for the one who had only grumbled and complained all the time he had spent with his buddy Vanessa in the game last year.

And the duo of strangers were not disappointed with the trip: Étienne made… Étienne to the delight of viewers who fell under the spell of his humor and his unique personality.

He got discouraged on many occasions and came out, as usual, with little well-felt sentences.

Arriving last in the various challenges, the trio logically ended the adventure in a final duel against Jason.

Still playing his role as a handicap, Étienne had to start this last-ditch race in place of Nathalie and Angie.

Against all expectations, and despite a moment of hesitation during the event, he emerged victorious from this ultimate challenge, provoking incredible joy on the part of the unknowns.

A very average agreement

During these two days of competition, Étienne, Angie and Nathalie displayed an infectious good mood and everyone seemed to be very close.

Nathalie even heckled the doctor by throwing him a glass of cold water... While the latter was taking a shower!

However, behind appearances, the reality seems quite different.

Nathalie is excited like a chip so, for me, it absolutely does not suit me.

I couldn't have done long with her.



Étienne didn't really hit it off with the two women.

“Nathalie is excited like a chip so, for me, it absolutely does not suit me.

I wouldn't have been able to last long with her

, Etienne explains to us.

And then, she is always optimistic, singing and moving forward.

She wanted me to speak Spanish even though I don't know the language.

I was cool because at times it was heavy and a little redneck.

Angie is very reserved and doesn't talk much but has enormous intellectual memorization skills.

She's sweet but seething inside.

I saw that I often annoyed him.

In short, I will not make girlfriends and friends even less.

They don't have any more.

With Nathalie, we exchanged numbers but we never called back.

I didn't get on with her like I did with Vanessa..."

Moments of tension

During the tests, the two women were a bit directive with Etienne because they couldn't do anything themselves.

An attitude that had the gift of annoying the doctor.

“They were always telling me how to do it and giving me advice all the time.

After a while, it's still very boring!

, confides Étienne to

TV Magazine


I rediscovered the stress of the competition for half a day where things went badly with Nathalie and Angie because they put a little too much pressure on me.

There were some tensions

. "

In addition to Nathalie and Angie, Étienne was able to discover, during his stay, the other candidates for season 17. And he had his favorites.

There are others who annoyed me, who were a bit pissed off and who were in the mix of alliances that I would have taken as a priority.

I think of Chirine and Alexandre and the dog and cat sisters.



“During the stage in which I participated, everyone was after Paloma and Jason

, he continues.

I would not have chosen them for the final duel.

There are others who annoyed me, who were a bit pissed off and who were in the mix of alliances that I would have taken as a priority.

I am thinking of Chirine and Alexandre and the dog and cat sisters, even though I know that was not possible because the latter were immune.

On the other hand, I got on well with Clément and Émeline, the duo who arrived later.

She is more in the competition but, he, is really adorable humanly.

I also really liked Céline, the employee who left with her boss, she's a very nice young woman too”
