Nathalie Simon’s Lucrative Journey on ‘La Première Compagnie’
French television presenter Nathalie Simon recently shed light on her journey on the TV show ‘La Première Compagnie,’ which turned out to be the most profitable venture of her career. The discussion took place on the C8 show ‘Chez Jordan’, hosted by Jordan de Luxe. Simon, known for her show ‘Waouh le Sud’ on France 3, shared details about her earnings from ‘La Première Compagnie’ and the impact it had on her life.
A Profitable Venture
During her conversation with Jordan de Luxe, Simon, who has been married to Tanguy for nearly four decades and is a mother to a 25-year-old daughter named Nina, was asked about her most lucrative television program. After some thought, she revealed that ‘La Première Compagnie’ was the show where she earned the most. Although she kept the exact amount confidential, she hinted at a substantial sum. Jordan clarified that she won 100,000 euros for a charity association. Simon added that she also won the same amount for herself.
Aiding Personal Life and Charity
The winnings from ‘La Première Compagnie’ not only benefited Simon personally but also made a significant impact on her chosen charity. She disclosed that the winnings helped her purchase an apartment at the time. She added that the participants won the same amount they earned for their chosen charity. Simon humorously questioned whether she was allowed to disclose this information before explaining that the statute of limitations had likely passed since the show aired in 2005.
‘La Première Compagnie’: A Unique Show
‘La Première Compagnie’ premiered on February 4, 2005, on TF1 and was hosted by Laurence Boccolini and Bruno Roblès. The show, filmed in Guyana by Endemol, involved 12 celebrities competing in a military-style setting to win money for their chosen charities. The unique format of the show allowed celebrities to contribute to a cause of their choice while also earning an equal amount for themselves.
Supporting Naevus 2000 France-Europe
Simon chose the charity Naevus 2000 France-Europe for her stint on ‘La Première Compagnie’. Her efforts on the show helped her win a substantial sum for the charity, supporting their initiatives and enabling them to make a more significant impact. Following Simon, Jean Roucas participated in the show, competing for Secours Populaire and securing the second position.
Bringing Transparency to Celebrity Earnings
Simon’s revelation about her earnings on ‘La Première Compagnie’ brings a level of transparency to the often secretive world of celebrity earnings on television shows. While the exact amounts remain undisclosed, it provides a glimpse into the potential earnings celebrities can make from participating in such programs. Furthermore, it highlights the dual benefit these shows offer, allowing celebrities to aid charities while also profiting personally.
