“Numbers and letters”: here are the replacements for Bertrand Renard and Arielle Boulin-Prat, ousted
If Laurent Romejko remains at the presentation “Numbers and letters” at the start of the school year in September, Bertrand Renard and Arielle Boulin-Prat, the two pillars of the game show, have meanwhile been fired from the cult program of France Télévisions. Even if we will see them for the last time on the weekend of September 10 and 11, they will indeed not be present in the new version of the show, now broadcast on weekends. Bertrand Renard and Arielle Boulin-Prat recently confided in AFP. “What is modestly referred to as a contractual disagreement arose because FTV demanded a reduction in our salary of around 60% and refused to grant us the CDI that we had the audacity to claim. Because yes, you you read correctly, we have been on fixed-term contracts for 36 years for Arielle, and 47 years for Bertrand… We do not exist even though we are on the air every day. This regularization was flatly refused to us.
Two new faces, or almost
The two emblematic figures of France 3 will therefore indeed have two replacements from September 16, as confirmed by Patrice Laffont, artistic producer of the show. “Stéphane Crosnier immediately imposed himself on me, he explained to Télé 7 jours. He is a very charismatic former candidate, prodigious in numbers. He was brilliant in many tournaments of Numbers and figures. letters. But he also has a very good sense of TV since he worked as a sports editor at BFM TV and RMC Sport.”
Second person? Blandine Maire, teacher in small section. “She has a big background, because she is a lawyer and has also worked on television as a journalist working with Olivier Minne or on Fort Boyard, continues Patrice Laffont, still at Télé 7 jours. “Amusing little anecdote: she was at the mountain at the time of the casting, so she sent us a little video from her little studio! Everyone was thrilled.”
