On October 6, 2021, In Touche Pas à Mon Poste, big information was revealed concerning a pact that Claude, Laurent and Phil would have made before the shooting of Koh Lanta, The Legend. The three candidates would have agreed with a fourth person to share the winnings at the end of the game. A common practice according to Mohamed Derradji, who participated in Koh Lanta twice and who would have collected money himself with four other adventurers after Clémence’s victory in 2005. After these revelations, Laurent Maistret spoke on his Twitter account on October 7.
“Completely false rumor of the so-called financial pact with Claude and Phil. I find it a shame all these false rumors launched by former adventurers frustrated at not being in this edition” he wrote, sending a small tackle in passing. For her part, Alexia Laroche-Joubert, president of Adventure Line Productions (ALP), who was contacted by our colleagues from Puremeans, was also expressed: “I find it a shame and sad if it is true”. After recalling that “the regulations forbid it”, she added: “More than money, what these All-Star adventurers want even more is the title! Their holy grail is the totem pole!”. In the rest of the news, Candice, who has been permanently eliminated from Koh Lanta, La Légende, reacted to Coumba’s apology.
