THE TWELVE BLOWS OF MIDI – In post for more than two weeks, Léo is master of the 12 strokes of noon. He searches for the solution of a mysterious second star.
[Mis à jour le 16 septembre 2020 à 12h48] No new masterstroke for Leo this Wednesday but the certainty that he will return tomorrow to continue to try his luck against the mysterious star. The “mini president”, as he affectionately calls him Jean-Luc Reichmann, won € 1,000 to be shared with a viewer, i.e. an additional € 500 for his prize pool, which therefore reached the sum of € 88,731. The clues about the mysterious star are: a lion, a cobblestone floor, books and a cow’s skull. Faced with this enigma, Leo proposed the name of Yannick Noah but unfortunately without success. Léo has already tried the names of Philippe Katerine, François Gabart, Franck Ribéry, Lambert Wilson and Michel Boujenah but without success. Below is a screenshot of the mysterious star as last seen on the show.
The last mysterious star was discovered on September 9, 2020 by Leo. The many clues indicated that Matthieu Chedid had to be found in this riddle. At the same time, he won the jackpot of € 21,681. We explain why:
- Egypt in reference to its origins
- Books in reference to Andrée Chedid, woman of letters
- The bike in reference to the original soundtrack of Les Triplettes de Belleville
- The Harley Davidson motorcycle for the Johnny Hallyday album he composed
- The fishbowl with the goldfish in reference to its first group
- The pencil holder in reference to his song in tribute to Charlie Hebdo
Eric was present every day in the 12 noon shots of Jean-Luc Reichmann since November 21, 2019. On Friday June 19, the Breton champion whom the host liked to call “Fantastérix” ended up being eliminated from the daily game. He bowed after 199 participations and total gains of 921 316€, which made him the greatest midday master of all time. He’s also the second-biggest game show winner of all time (the record is still held by Marie, who won a million euros in 2004 in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire). Eric’s career was particularly followed because he finally succeeded in making forget the previous records of participations and gains of Christian Quesada, fallen champion of the game. Eric also finishes his race in 12 strokes of noon with 62 master strokes and 7 mysterious stars discovered.
In an interview with Linternaute.com, Eric did not hide his disappointment at failing at the foot of the symbolic bar of 200 participations. “There is a small hint of disappointment, I won’t hide it from you. But ultimately it’s more of a symbolic goal than anything else. The main thing for me is to have taken the first place. We will see, maybe one day someone will manage to exceed 200 participations and to exceed me. “He also explains to us that he intends to use his earnings to enlarge his house or to buy a bigger one to live with his. wife and his two daughters in a bigger place. In this interview, he goes back in detail on his career, his doubts, the tension he felt with regard to the records he set but also the media pressure that ‘he hopes to see a decrease.

The classification of the 12 blows of noon was turned upside down by the participation of Eric. Arrived in the game of Jean-Luc Reichmann on November 21, 2019, the Breton master left it on June 19, 2020 after 199 participations and a total of € 921,316 in earnings. He beats Christian Quesada, who had long remained the all-round champion of the game with 193 participations and € 809,392 in earnings. Following her comes Paul with € 691,522 and 153 participations, then Véronique with exactly 100 participations and € 447,226 in earnings. Then come Timothée with 83 participations and 353,348 € and Benoît with 82 participations and 397,946 € in all.
Christian Quesada, former champion of the 12 strokes of noon, was sentenced to three years in prison for “possession and dissemination of child pornography” and “corruption of a minor”. Placed in pre-trial detention for a year, the former candidate of the 12 blows of noon had admitted the facts with which he is accused but had refuted any physical contact and any sexual assault of the victims. As a reminder, Christian Quesada has long been the holder of the record for participations (193 straight wins) and earnings (809 392 €) of the show. He participated from July 4, 2016 to January 14, 2017.
