Marie Portolano ‘crying’ during the new season of ‘Best Pastry Chef’

And three for Marie Portolano. If the hostess does not wear a hat or apron, she returns to the animation of Best Pastry Chef For the second ‘amateur’ season after trying the ‘Pro’ version which ended its broadcast at the end of July 2022. It will again be surrounded by referees Cyril Linnac and Mercut. For the occasion, the Box Cooking Contest resumes Wednesday at 9:10 p.m.

The journalist landed on the M6 ​​in 2021, transitioning from sports journalism to entertainment. She is now enjoying this new arrow in her bow but hasn’t given up on her committed side since making a new documentary on violence against women.

How did you approach this new season while filming?

I was very happy to find the difference. It was my third experience in the group but Best Pastry Chef, 11 seasons of technicians, editors, sound engineers, cameramen, and assistant directors meet each year. I was also pleasantly surprised by the staff. The pastry chefs really make a beautiful squad and have created a wonderful symbiosis. They are all very happy, even if they cry a lot because they loved each other so much.

No tears to proclaim from your side?

Well, I admit … (Laughter). I also shed some tears sometimes even though I thought I would cry more because of my condition. [Marie Portolano était enceinte lors du tournage].

Does your past as a sports journalist help you deal with this competition?

It’s really the same thing, only the setting changes but for me it’s a pleasure to move. The big difference is live. In sports, you have to interact live Best Pastry Chef It is a registered show. But there are real similarities. There are rules to respect, when you don’t respect them you are eliminated where you can get a card… There is also real pressure because they are amateurs but they are very involved and demanding with them – same thing. Then at the end, there is a winner.

Last season we saw you share dinner with the contestants during the broadcast. Have you maintained relationships with those in the season?

This season’s nominees were due to come to dinner at home on Friday. And because I’m about to give birth to us. These are the people you’ve really established relationships with, not just professional relationships. We talked a lot about our personal lives, how they feel after the show airs, etc. So it is very fun. I have also kept very good communication with the pastry chefs from my first season. It’s a two month photoshoot so we obviously have time to make connections. Just because we’re on a TV show doesn’t mean the links aren’t real.

After your first season aired, Michel Drucker praised your “holy nature,” how did you receive that compliment?

I was shocked, as if I had been validated in the rap world! (Laughter) Michael Drucker is a bit like the godfather of the Pakistan Air Force and I had the impression he called me. I said to myself, “If he says that, it’s because he means it because we don’t know each other personally. It gives me the impression that I’ve done nothing wrong and above all that I have to do things well for such a character to find me well.”

You hit the M6 ​​about a year ago and we’ve seen that you’re on top of several performances. Are you like the Swiss Army Knife of the series?

It is true that when I arrived, I was chained between European football, Best Pastry Chef, musical performances so I didn’t have time to think. When someone offers me something that sounds like a good idea, I go for it. Suffice it to say that I have not turned down anything at the moment.

What can stop you?

I could have said comedy because I’m not an actress. But M6 gave me this opportunity in Interior scenes. I feel like it’s a channel that offers a lot of possibilities for me to take advantage of. It’s so much fun because you tell yourself that there’s nothing engraved on the stone. I really don’t feel like I’m confined to one show and I’m really glad to be able to touch it all up. I really loved this first season on the set.

You should still slow down soon, right before the World Cup…

Although I am a sports fanatic, I will not watch the World Cup in Qatar for several reasons… and in particular because I will not have much time to see what will happen in my personal life.

What are your plans for 2023?

I am preparing a new documentary with M6 on the topic of violence against women in the world of work. This project started from the beginning of my collaboration with the group, but I first wanted to think about the topic and settle them on the channel. This will be my big project for 2023 with shooting for the next season of Best Pastry Chefscheduled for May.

Thus, your role as an entertainment host has not erased your committed side, which viewers discovered during the broadcast of your documentary “I’m Not a Whore” on Channel + in March 2021?

Moving on lighter programs doesn’t mean I’m putting all my convictions aside. M6 doesn’t limit me to my role as host, they accept and encourage my committed side, and other things will soon happen in that direction. With the M6, we may be moving toward a new form of committed animation. I find this wonderful.
