During the press conference of miss France organized last Friday at the premises of Maison Laduréeavenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris, many colleagues were surprised not to have the opportunity to discover in front of them, as was the case in previous years, the 30 candidates in competition. Similarly, viewers did not have the opportunity to see the participants of the contest as part of the 1 p.m. news of TF1 before they fly away for their preparatory stay in Guadeloupe. This televised meeting had been established by Jean-Pierre Pernaut, maintained until its final JT on December 18, 2020 and taken over by Marie-Sophie Lacarrau on November 17, 2021.

“A wink to tell you my happiness and my emotion when I think back to the last sequence of my last 13-hour diary almost a year ago when Sylvie (Tellier, editor’s note) and Jean-Pierre (Foucault) got me applauded by all the regional misses”had testified with emotion and enthusiasm Jean-Pierre Pernaut that day. “The “13 Heures” and the Miss France, it’s a wonderful adventure of which I am very proud. Proud that this first inevitable meeting of all regional misses with their audience continues. » The one who presided over the election of Miss France 2022 on December 11, 2021 at the Zénith de Caen, a few months before dying from the consequences of cancerwould certainly be saddened to see that this tradition has not been maintained this year.
Alexia Laroche-Joubert, new beauty pageant president, justified this absence by the very tight schedule put in place this year on the one hand, and an editorial choice by TF1 on the other. Arrivals last Thursday in Paris, the 30 candidates for the election of Miss France 2023 only had three days to carry out all their fittings, carry out their first official photo shoot and meet the partners before taking over the management, this Monday, from Guadeloupe. “Many subjects will be made on Miss France during the TF1 newsshe said. Thierry Thuillier (news director) prefers to see the candidates in motion during their journey and their preparations. »
