“Indeed, in Koh-Lanta, you can get injured, you can have very, very heavy physical consequences. I was told: ‘If you don’t go too far in the game it’s fine, but if you go far, it’s going to be super violent and you’re going to take time to recover’.” Words that could have frightened and discouraged him. But his desire to participate in Koh Lanta was stronger than anything. “I took the risk, I didn’t hurt myself (…) Everything is fine, I was very lucky not to hurt myself; I have no irreversible injuries that prevent me from dancing“, he also launched to reassure his fans and his future employers.
