The real reasons for his departure fromDeal done
He had revealed exclusively to our colleagues at Mail Picard the reasons for his departure: I lived an extraordinary adventure. And now, the future for me is the development of second-hand shops. It’s the only thing that motivates me and my decision was made with my wife. It is not excluded that I return in a new emission, on the topic of the flea market or the urbex, which I will present alone or perhaps accompanied. It is in reflection, because I do not run after cameras and flashes”.
Just before his last show in Deal done, he had disclosed his remuneration to Tele-Leisure. “The salary is the same for all buyers who receive 1000 euros per day of shooting. And then, when success came, we shot four, then five and today six. Once all the charges are removed, it must be something like 85 euros per show, I think”.
Pierre-Jean Chalençon, the eccentric of the gang
In addition to Julien Cohen, you have probably not forgotten his playing colleague, Pierre-Jean Chalençon. This one left the adventure ofDeal done in June 2020. “I decided to leave Affaire concluded, it’s been a few weeks since I spoke to the production and to Sophie. I wanted my role to evolve, it didn’t evolve. he explains. His departure was accompanied by a scandal after the publication of a snapshot with Dieudonné. As was predictable, Internet users were on fire on the Web. This event would have accelerated things for the fan of Napoleon Bonaparte. Strongly criticized on social networks, the former buyer ofDeal done spoke about CNews. “I recognize that it was a fault, but all those who know me know that I cannot be suspected of sharing Dieudonné’s ideas”.
Once he had officially left the showDeal done, Pierre-Jean Chalençon does not hesitate to swing on the program “For Affaire Conclue, at the end I said that we were treated like shit and that’s kind of the truth. We were paid with slingshots with ridiculous sums and above all we had no dressing room. Our dressing room for the buyers was the toilets where Sophie Davant went. There was a small fridge with mice and rats and we rested in the decor with a small sofa ”, he declared for Sud Info on March 14. Today, Pierre-Jean Chalençon still uses social networks, offers tours in the Vivienne Palacewhich he owns.
Alain Laugier present in season 1
Finally, we can also mention Alain Laugier who is the first to have left the show of business concluded. The antique dealer did not want to continue for a second season on France 2. “I decided to stop participating in the program because the shooting conditions no longer suited me. I no longer took the same pleasure as at the beginning. So I took my responsibilities thoughtfully and serenely“, he confessed to Star TV. Furthermore, he also told Tele-Leisure that he did not accept certain differences in treatment between buyers. “My shoots have been divided by three. Before I was shooting 6 days a month and now I only shoot two », unlike other buyers. He has returned to “normal” life far from the cameras and continues to manage his shop in Foumourette.
