The noose is tightening. On December 11, all eyes will be on the city of Caen (in Normandy), where the 101st Miss France election will take place. But before the French elect their new ambassador, a year after the coronation of Amandine Petit, the 29 competing candidates have the right to the traditional preparatory trip. This year is on Reunion Island that they flew away for a few days. And there, the days are busy.
The teams of Parisian were able to follow them for a whole day during which the regional Misses notably attended a course in eloquence, in anticipation of their speeches on the big night of the ceremony. A rather original course since they had to read texts taken from the songs … of the group NTM. “‘Let me zoom zoom zang in your Benz Benz Benz / Girl, when you whine your bumpa, it drives me crazy crazy crazy’ proclaim in chorus without really understanding the meaning of the punchline by JoeyStarr, the Miss Côte d’Azur and Auvergne in a surreal moment on the terrace of the 4-star hotel“, report our colleagues.
It is the new president of the Miss France committee, Alexia Laroche-Joubert who had the idea of this exercise to prepare them as well as possible. She explains : “The goal is to see how the girls appropriate a text by reinterpreting it in their own way, I want to develop their adaptability. To be a Miss France is to give your opinion on everything and its opposite.“
Since taking up her positions, the producer intends to make several changes to the historic competition. Starting by reviewing the parades that were too similar to those of Victoria’s Secret for his taste. Alexia Laroche-Joubert is also ready to redefine certain registration criteria such as the possibility of having a tattoo or of not being single. But she first started by offering an employment contract to each of the Misses, a great first!
