THE TWELVE BREAKS OF NOON. The current midday master Quentin does not find the personality yet fully revealed in the mysterious star worth € 92,631.
[Mis à jour le 14 janvier 2021 à 11h15] On Wednesday January 13, 2021, Quentin, the new midday master since Sunday January 10, 2021 discovered the remaining boxes of the mysterious star. We can now see the face of the singer Bénabar. But at the end of the 12 seconds of illumination of the mysterious star, Quentin proposed Cyril Féraud while it is in reality Bénabar. Hopefully for him, that the master of noon, who for the moment has a jackpot of € 3,550, is still in possession of his title this afternoon to try his luck again and win this colossal mysterious star of € 92,631. Jean-Luc Reichmann was however sure his candidate had the answer, as he explained to Zette at the end of the show. Internet users were also surprised, as we can see with this comment “But, it’s easy, it’s Bénabar!” or “No, but seriously, he didn’t find Bénabar there? I’m dreaming”.
This mysterious star had been on the set for several weeks, but the midday masters struggled to find the personality behind the clues. Today completely unveiled, we can recognize Bénabar, but the clues could also put us on the track of the singer. Indeed, the Italian ice cream at the bottom left of the image refers to his mother of Italian origin. The projector, at the top left of the mysterious star, evokes cinema, since the singer has also made a few short films. Regarding the camera, he alludes to the period when he was a photographer for the cinema and the circus stool, when he belonged to a duo of clowns. The trumpet was the instrument the singer was introduced to at the age of 8 and the mirabelles evokes the title of one of his songs.
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 blows 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.
Nicknamed Zette, the voice-over of the game Les 12 coups de midi is played by Isabelle Benhadj. Arriving six months after the launch of 12 coups de midi in 2010, she had met Jean-Luc Reichmann in 1987 on Fun Radio where she was host. We can hear his voice in other television programs such as Secrets d’Histoire on France 2.
Like the game of France 2 Everyone wants to take its place presented by Nagui at the same time at TNT program, The 12 strokes of noon asks candidates to answer general knowledge questions. For his part, Jean-Luc Reichmann tries to learn more about the life of the participants and breathes dynamism into the show.
