Tv Star : Necessarily a little disappointed by this defeat, so close to the million ?
Christian : The disappointment is mild because I have always advocated a maxim that is very simple : when you make a game you need to know win with style and lose with dignity and I think that is what I did. I was always told to be the first to congratulate the person who would make me fall. This is what I have done spontaneously. The secret of my longevity is I want to be prepared. When you are a competitor, you are expected to lose. And then I started the 4th of July, 193 noon I was at the table of the people it is huge. Actually, the million-was the only goal I had in mind. I had more large-thing to be won, I had beaten all records for the game. I told myself this goal there to create the end but honestly I don’t have a disappointment special. I won a gigantic sum of money, I have gained exposure in the media is phenomenal. One speaks to me everywhere, everywhere… Actually this million mark is not reached, but it is an anecdote. In two-three months, I’m going to remember that my journey and what I’ve done simply.
do you Have a time thought to stop yourself ?
C : I will be removed from me-even if I had reached the million. Admittedly, I am a competitor, but withdraw in the name of what, this is not me who makes the rules of the game ! If I withdraw from spontaneously leaving the place to others, it would mean that I don’t respect my opponents, that would mean wait, for you to be champion it would be necessary that I go, which is a lack of humility is absolutely gigantic. I have always respected my playing partners, I always insisted to Jean-Luc that this were not my enemies but my partners.
How have you experienced this sudden notoriety ?
C : Honestly, I’ve lived well because I have 52 years old. I think that if I had known the same adventure 25 years ago, I would have flipped out, because the media coverage is absolutely gigantic. I am recognized in the street by people of all ages, all styles, all origins, of all social conditions, and it is here that we can see that this game has a lot of impact.
What will you do with all your gifts ?
C : I have spoilt my children at Christmas. For the time being, I’ll remain a renter, I just recovered the house that I shared with my wife in the Ain, I signed the lease on 29 December 2016. With all the gifts high-tech that I’ve won, I’ll be able to furnish my house from A to Z.
And 7 cars ?
C : For the moment, I don’t have a permit. To pass the exam I have to do an operation to the eyes. I think keeping the volkswagen beetle convertible. I gave a car to my ex-wife and others, I expect to receive it because it is very long. To give you a calendar, the first car that I won in July 2016, I received it on the 12th of January 2017 !
If we exclude the 7 cars and 7 windows, how much cash have you won, really ?
C : The gains represent 600 000 euros in cash and 209 392 euros in gifts.
Jean-Luc Reichmann suggested a joint project, can you tell us more ?
C : there will certainly be a partnership with Jean-Luc, and then certainly other proposals which I do not suspect the existence that I will. Of course, I’d like to work with Jean-Luc on a tv show, but for the moment nothing concrete, it may be in comedy, in the game…
You are not going to let you wear in life ?
C : Actually, I could never work with the amount of money that I have if I place it correctly, there are what take. But no, I want to continue in the things that fascinate me. I have 52 years but I’m in great shape. I dream of creating my own recording studio for young rock bands in the region to allow them to have the equipment of a pro.
You have also met the love during these last few months, how is named the lucky lady ?
C : My love life is very satisfying. And then honestly I don’t think it looks great world ! If I asked you the first name of your companion and that you don’t want to tell me, I’m not going to insist ! Point final !
A small message Clear that you was dethroned ?
C : I wish him the best, it is an excellent candidate, you will see how far it will go, I will not reveal anything!!!
