How do you live the fact to be eliminated on your own test, at the gates of the final ?
It is hard work ! It happened to Victor last year, I think it’s a bit of a bias when it comes to risk in the tests. I didn’t want to do something in the facility. Is it that it was the right time to take risks ? Perhaps not, but I don’t regret in any case my choice.

Florian said in the interview that you had been able to take advantage of his help and that your attitude had subsequently changed. He also spoke of “dirt” on your part. Do you know where it is coming from ?

What are you doing today ?
I open a restaurant at the end of August in the Marais, in Paris. It will be open in the evening, small plates focused on the plants, the fish, with influences from everywhere.
