The celebration of the 12th anniversary of the show “Les 12 coups de midi” went off without a hitch. Jean-Luc Reichmann, both the presenter and the viewers were satisfied with the event. However, one thing could not go unnoticed since the start of the competition. A situation that disappointed TF1 and even the presenter.
Jean Reichmann: The celebration of the 12th anniversary of the “12 Coups de midi” was a success
It’s only a few days. Many still remember the celebration of 12 years of Jean-Luc Reichmann’s show. During this event, we had the chance to have two weeks of very tough competition. In reality, 56 afternoon masters compete for the title of Grandmaster of Midi since Sunday 26 June. A real treat for the viewers of the TF1 leisure show.
After the two exceptional bounties entitled “The Battle of the Masters”, only two afternoon champions remained. In particular Eric and Xavier who faced each other in the final for the title of Grandmaster of the afternoon. Far superior to his opponent, Xavier emerged victorious. The celebration of the 12th anniversary of Jean-Luc Reichmann’s show ended on July 9.
A former champion refused to participate in the celebration
The celebration was a real success not only for the presenter Jean-Luc Reichmann, but also for the fans of the program. Indeed, more than 3 million viewers were riveted in front of their screens to follow the flagship game of the first channel. An exceptional and unprecedented achievement since the broadcast of 12 noon shots.
During the two bonuses, the tension and emotions were not lacking. The clashes between the candidates were always very close. Especially during the grand finale where the atmosphere was even more lively with the presence of Keen’V and Amel Bent. However, one thing also caught the viewers’ attention during the celebration. In particular, the absence of a former champion of Jean-Luc Reichmann.
Jean-Luc Reichmann: Why Paul El Kharrat did not participate in the “Combat of the masters”
Indeed, even if Paul El Kharrat was invited by Jean-Luc Reichmann, he did not participate in the celebration. The one who recently joined the band from “Big Heads” didn’t show up for the competition. According to what Franche Dimanche said, the man refused the invitation to participate in the “Combat of the masters”. A decision that surprised not only the viewers, but also the presenter of 12 Coup de midi.
As for the reason, it seems that the motive is Paul El Kharrat’s engagement to the “big heads “. A justification that did not satisfy TF1. Apparently, the former champion of Jean-Luc Reichmann is only included in the broadcast of the waves of RTL one morning a week. This also disappointed the presenter of the program Les 12 Coups de midi. Who knows what would have happened during the “Battle of the Masters” if things had turned out differently.
