The distribution of your portrait has aroused the interest of many contenders. Was opening the mail for a while?
I received quite a few letters from women who wanted to meet me. Many seemed ready to come a long way with me and it was a really nice surprise as I wasn’t sure what to expect. I couldn’t wait to open and read all this mail. Although it turned out to be a bit of a complicated exercise for me.
That is to say ?
I found it very difficult to get an idea of the person just by reading a letter and seeing their photo. Already for the pretenders, I think it is not easy to reveal themselves in writing, but for me, it was not easy to feel who they were through the words …
All the same, a choice had to be made. How did you choose the ones you wanted to meet?
In the mail, I was fortunate enough to receive a video presentation from one of the contenders. I really liked it! For letters, the selection was more complicated. I went there by feeling. But one thing was crippling: spelling mistakes (laughs) ! In the end, I selected a dozen profiles out of the dozen authorized by the production of the show.
You couldn’t wait to meet your suitors face-to-face?
Yes. Speed dating was a defining moment for me and a step that I was really waiting for. It was the real beginning of the adventure because there was this meeting in person with the pretenders. The shoot took place in Paris and it was an incredible experience: I found myself there, with ten girls who came especially for me… It’s something I will remember (laughs) ! Above all, we were able to discuss, exchange. It was very strong.
Favorite things during these first meetings?
In any case, there was a nice emulsion during this speed-dating. I also kept in touch with almost all the girls I met. But there were also some crushes. With some, alchemy was established straight away. Two of the suitors then came to spend a short week at the house. There again, it was an experience rich in emotion which allowed us to get to know each other better and to reveal ourselves little by little.
Have you finally found love?
So that, I can’t tell you, you’ll have to watch the show to the end to find out (laughs) !!! In any case, it is a very good experience, a great adventure that is on its way and also a great therapy for me.
