By Mathis Ferrut Journalist people, TV, reality TV Fascinated by the world of media from an early age, television has no secrets for him. Loft Story, Star Academy, Secret Story, the Ch'tis, the Marseillais… He is a real encyclopedia of reality TV. He is also a fan of sports (particularly football and Paris Saint-Germain) and music. He listens to everything and his playlists surprise more than one! It's no secret that Cyril Hanouna is not on very good terms with TF1. He regularly tackles the channel in TPMP and, recently, he smashed the show Le Late by Alain Chabat. So he must have made a funny face when he realized that one of his protégés was now working for his rivals…
Cyril Hanouna and Alain Chabat are not great friends. In 2018, convinced of having been insulted in Burger Quiz, the host of TPMPdidn't hesitate to threaten the former Dummies member. “ Alain, I've been very nice to you so far, but there (…) There's Aouicha (Aouicha Bati, artistic producer, editor's note) who tells me 'Calm down'. treated, I'm not going to say anything here, but I hope I'll meet him very soon off the air“, he had launched.
“It's an industrial disaster“
The one who recently made a promise that could cost him dearly is also far from being on very good terms with TF1, which he regularly criticizes on his show. A few days ago, Baba also dismantled Le Late, the program presented by Alain Chabat and broadcast after the World Cup matches on the first channel.
“We're not going to lie to each other, the most important thing is the audience. Me, I don't care if it works or not, I don't give a damn, I'm not in front. But there, it's 800,000 on TF1, it's an industrial disaster, but what drives me crazy is the communication around it“, notably swung the host who received an unusual request from Kelly Vedovelli for Christmas.
A former protege of Cyril Hanouna joins the competition
So imagine his disappointment when he learned that the One of his protégés had joined his rivals and was now working for Alain Chabat's show on TF1. Indeed, his former room manager, Eric Mendes, who announced his departure from TPMP in August 2022, posted several photos on Twitter in which he is seen working for Le Late.
“Tonight 10:55 p.m. Le Late with Alain Chabat! A kiff to have heated this show! Thanks to @JeromeRevon and Mr. Chabat for their trust ❤️“, he wrote. Not sure Baba liked the tweet.
As a reminder, Eric Mendes is working on several broadcasts on different channels, including the room manager of France has an incredible talent on M6.
