The year 2022 has not been easy for Denis Brogniart. The host has been faced with many deaths among his relatives. Jean-Pierre Pernaut died of lung cancer in March 2022. And a few days later, another of his friends, Laurent Vimont, died of a heart attack at the age of 61. . Since 2009, he had been president of the network of real estate agencies Century 21 after a brief experience as a lifeguard.
“I have just lost a dear friend, a rare man, a catalyst for good vibes and energy. I loved him deeply, I admired him a lot and I respected him infinitely. He was a great human boss. We went through swimming in the Seine on a morning in June. We were still joking together 2 days ago… I can’t believe it. My only comfort is knowing that you were very happy, fulfilled with your wife Alice and your daughter Victoire, the apples of your eyes that I think about today. RIP MY FRIEND“, he wrote in tribute to the businessman.
A year after his disappearance, the facilitator had a thought for him. “A year ago my friend Laurent Vimont left us. Forever in our hearts”he wrote on his account instagramSaturday, March 11, 2023.
The future of Denis Brogniart at the head of Koh-Lanta
In a recent interview with Telepro, Alexia Laroche-Joubert was asked about the future of Denis Brogniart and a possible change of host. The president of ALP (which produces the adventure game, editor’s note) replied: “When I am asked if I am thinking about the departure of Denis Brogniart, I always answer that the day Denis Brogniart leaves ‘Koh-Lanta’, I will already have left. So it won’t concern me“, she first said before continuing by saying: “I think at some point I will stop managing ALP. These are shows that are tiring (to produce). Sometimes you have to consider your succession. We are exactly the same age and we will retire together!“.
That should reassure fans of the presenter, and annoy his detractors…
