- Elodie, 35, last of the elimination round of the fourth episode of Koh-Lanta, the sacred fire broadcast Tuesday on TF1, had to leave the game.
- "I was unlucky compared to the black balls, I could not prove what I was worth," laments the thirty-year-old Belgian.
- "I was touched by breast cancer in December 2021. I sent my application to Koh-Lanta specifying my state of health, says Elodie. I was called to do the castings when I had not finished my treatments. I told myself that I wasn't going to give up on my dreams. »
"At the end of the third black ball, I told myself that fate had decided not to be nice to me." Elodie had her Koh-Lanta spoiled by these draws depriving her of competing with her red team Tinago. In the fourth episode, broadcast Tuesday on TF1, fate fell on the 35-year-old Belgian who considers herself "unlucky in life". She came last in the playoffs and was eliminated on the spot...
How did you experience your elimination?
Very badly and I still haven't grieved. I had no luck with the black balls, I could not prove what I was worth. If I had had this opportunity, I would have taken this outing better on a qualifying event. But I know I left with my head held high because, the day before, I was very negative. On the morning of the council, I promised my teammates that they wouldn't hear me complain anymore...
At the last council, you were in the hot seat. There, you at least have the satisfaction of telling yourself that your elimination was not decided by your teammates, right?
After the council, I thanked Martin, Julie and Christine who had voted against me because they kicked my butt. It was a lesson, which made me realize that I had to stop complaining. Afterwards, it is true that the fact that my torch was not extinguished softened my pain a little. But since the teams were reconstituted right after, I think I could have stayed longer.
What inspired you to participate in "Koh-Lanta"?
I wanted to push myself physically. I've always loved sport and had this adventurous side in me. I love backpacking, going to sleep anywhere, on the floor. Since I didn't have the opportunity to participate in many events, I couldn't push my limits. That's why it sticks in my throat. I wanted to prove that I was a fighter and take revenge on life.
I was touched by breast cancer in December 2021. I had surgery in the aftermath. Fifteen days later, I sent my application to Koh-Lanta specifying my state of health. I was called to do the castings when I had not finished my treatments. I told myself that I was not going to stop living, nor give up my dreams. I have not felt any impact of cancer on my body or on my life. It was a revenge on life to participate in Koh-Lanta. I wanted to prove that you can be affected by the disease and be a fighter.
