- The fourth episode of Koh-Lanta, the sacred fire was broadcast Tuesday on TF1.
- Tania, a member of the new red team, was eliminated on the board.
- "I had fractured my tibial set a few weeks before filming, so I was on crutches. I should have kept them for two months, I decided to give them up to participate in Koh-Lanta. I could very well have gone on an event and lost my knee. My greatest pride is that my body managed to hold on, "says the 22-year-old dietician to 20 Minutes.
For Tania, the days followed each other without looking alike on the island of Koh-Lanta, the sacred fire. Holder of the precious protective talisman during the third episode, she lost it at the beginning of the fourth broadcast this Tuesday on TF1. The 22-year-old dietician from the Paris region has also undergone the recomposition of the teams that saw her switch to the new red tribe and questioned her strategies. In the end, she was eliminated during the council...
You didn't expect to be eliminated at this board?
All day, I was serene. Rudy kept telling me that I had to trust him. When I arrived at the council, my intuition told me: "Tania, you're going out." And that's before we even vote. The counting proved to me that I was right.
Did you blame Rudy?
At the moment, a little bit. But I figured he did it to protect himself. If he could not save me, it was because there had been a turnaround. It's difficult when you have the whole team on your back.
Didn't the fact that you were so good in the eyes of others, when you were not part of the same team, harm you?
If. When there are strong affinities from the beginning in Koh-Lanta, others often wish to break them. That is what happened. Rudy and I did not hide from our good understanding from day one and it scared our teams.
Has the recomposition of the teams destabilized you?
Yes, especially since with the ex-yellows, we were on a very good dynamic. We were starting to understand how to solidify the cohesion of the group, we were winning victories, everything was going pretty well. In the knockout event [at the beginning of the episode], we saw that the yellows all finished very fast. After the reshuffle of the teams, I was more mixed, but I was still happy to find myself with Rudy and Esteban with whom I had formed an alliance. I thought it would allow me to go further.
What prevented this?
In my opinion, it went wrong because of Anne-Sophie. She didn't want to follow our strategy in Esteban, Rudy and me. She turned her jacket around and went to the ex-yellows, Frédéric, Quentin and Clément to establish another strategy of which, it seems to me, Helena was a part.
If you could change something in your adventure, what would you do differently?
Nothing. I had an atypical journey, which was not easy. If I had to do one thing differently it would be not to trust Rudy so much. I should have asked him what strategy he wanted to implement with his strategic weapon because, with two brains, we always think better.
You are a dietician. Does it help when you participate in "Koh-Lanta"?
Yes, because I left with four kilos more, just to get in my reserves. I never felt weak. I was tired like everyone else, but I didn't think about abandonment or the good food I was going to prepare when I got home... I was coping pretty well with the lack of food. I drank a lot, I had to be at six or seven liters of water a day. It kept me from going hungry.
Anything else to add?
I'm glad my knee held. I had fractured my tibial set a few weeks before filming, so I was on crutches. I should have kept them for two months, I decided to give them up to participate in Koh-Lanta. I could very well have gone on an event and lost my knee. My greatest pride is that my body has managed to hold.
