It was stressful. Although I found it fantastic to be able to discover the behind the scenes. From a distance, the studios look like hangars in the middle of nowhere, but when you enter there is a great atmosphere, the teams make you feel really comfortable.

But beware, the emissions are “a lot coded“. “You have to be at such a distance from your partner, you have to lift the box in such a way, you have to always remember to smile. On my first TV, I was very afraid of having a halo under my arm! she laughs. She also had to look at someone in the room: at the slightest sign of her from her part of her, she had to reposition herself.

In one of the games, he chained three shows. the Ballet of the TV crew it is intoxicating. “You have to put on make-up, change your hairstyle, change your clothes. Once transformed in five minutes, I didn’t even know what I looked like! Besides, I barely recognized myself, ”she says. Candidates often have “layers” of foundation.

Also, he recalls an anecdote: “I was told to come with different outfits, not black, not white, but colored. Then it is the stylist who chooses. Once, one of them took my clothes out of the suitcase, and said: no, that’s bad too, not that… She had only kept one dress! “

The bottle into the sea is thrown. Olympe also dreams of doing Beijing Express, with a friend. He has already completed the Vendée edition, swamp express, mid-August. “I’ve met extraordinary people. While hitchhiking, people on their way to work turned around, a lady made a detour of 100km to take us to our destination. The evenings were incredible ”.

A secret to getting a TV casting? be yourself. “I like culture and I know how to answer questions of general knowledge, but that’s not what interests them most. You also have to show that you want to be there. “
