The challenges of Koh Lanta did not scare him, Isabelle Seguin is now embarking on another adventure: the legislative elections. The one who won the TF1 reality TV show in 2003 will run in the fourth constituency of Ain for the elections of June 12 to 19, 2022, supported by Renaissance (ex-La République en Marche). She had won tied with the edition which had taken place in Panama and which was already at the time presented by Denis Brogniart.
His investiture in the colors of the party of re-elected President Emmanuel Macron does not prevent the outgoing LREM deputy, Stéphane Trompille, from presenting himself when he has been convicted of sexual harassment. The chosen one decided to maintain his candidacy “no matter what“, he told the Progress.
Isabelle Seguin became known for having won in 2003 and at the age of 40 the show Koh Lanta – Bocas del Toro, tied with Delphine. During this famous show that we find on Tuesday evenings, she had crossed paths with the famous Moundir, as she reminded the Figaro two years ago : “Over there, I was like the mother of Moussa and Moundir. (Laughs.) I remained a big fan of Koh Lanta.”
A fan but who knew how to make her voice heard. In this same interview for the TV section of the daily, she said: “I won a lawsuit against ALP [Adventure Line Productions] to receive all of the 100,000 euros promised to the winner and not the half that I was offered.“Indeed, the production had divided its gain in two since it won ex-aequo with Delphine, as the presenter had initially announced during the final. A decision that it argued for it, as for the other winner.
She will need the same tenacity that she had to win her case in order to win the legislative elections. “Unknown” in this fourth district of Ain, according to Progress, Isabelle Seguin, now 60 years old, will have to fight hard to reach the second round. “Maintaining the candidacy of Stéphane Trompille could indeed do the business of Aurane Reihanian, former president of the Young Republicans and now candidate for LR in this constituency which traditionally leans to the right“, specifies the site of BFMTV.
