Expedition Robinson

suits me: it's about good preparation, survival, intense collaboration and leadership."

He says he has prepared "maniacally".

"Two months in advance, despite the advice not to do that, I started training extra hard. I hired a personal trainer and organized a training camp. Four days of hard training, during which I only ate a bowl of rice every day. I wanted the hunger pains feel beforehand."
