“La Flamme” has become so iconic that we no longer count the number of diversions

THE FLAME – The verdict is irrevocable. A year and a half later The flamethe emblematic Marc, camped by the brilliant Jonathan Cohen, returns this Monday, May 23rd The torch on Canal+ and MyCanal. No competitors this time as this new salvo of nine episodes, as the name suggests, will parody, Koh Lanta.

But the anticipation surrounding the program is still strong. Indeed, Season 1 inspired by Burning Lovewhat was made fun of The bachelor, was very successful when it was released on the encrypted channel. Responses with absurd and irreverent humor – carried by a five-star cast made up notably of Leïla Bekhti, Florence Foresti, Pierre Niney or Adèle Exarchopoulos – that quickly hit the mark with the audience. And above all, which were quickly immortalized in memes (viral image aimed at sending a message through social networks).

The phenomenon then picked up speed very quickly over the course of the season and beyond. In fact, even today it’s not uncommon to see certain references to the series floating around. The HuffPost invites you to return to some of the most iconic recreations of The flameaccompanied by their parodies.

“Valérie just farted, it stinks, she has to go”

Unforgettable the affair of Valérie’s fart, played by Doria Tillier. As Marc prepares to name the qualified candidates right at the start of the season, Alexandra challenges him and accuses his competitor of farting.

The Jean Guile

The Jean Guile party, celebrated every November 14th, has become a real gimmick and doesn’t exist yet. It’s just pure invention The flame. This consists of dressing up and singing (without applause) to pay homage to the eponymous baker, who didn’t have enough arms to butter his sandwiches. An iconic passage from the program that Canal+ cleverly used to promote the series.

“If the Jean-Guile could not be celebrated on its original date, do not panic, the CBT (Comité Baguettes et Traditions), responsible for the organization of the Jean-Guile, has decreed that the 2020 edition will be postponed to the date of birth of the famous baker, i.e. November 14,” the encrypted channel decreed.


Probably the most devious replica of the program. In fact, there can be no question of that The flame Not to mention Alexandra’s obsession with Marc. Completely crazy about him, she never stopped calling him by his first name throughout the season. And often in a very virulent way, as you can see in the compilation below.

“I think it’s too early to make a choice, but my choice is made”

If it were necessary to quote the most absurd line The flame, it is obvious that this one would win first prize. More than the sentence, the entire dialogue between Marc and the show’s presenter (played by Vincent Dedienne) is worth its weight in gold.

“All the olive oil”

“What a tragedy… All that olive oil goes up in smoke… And of course Soraya dies. It’s too much”. This is another benevolent response from Marc when his monkey-hearted suitor had just lost his life after suffering a cardiac arrest. In fact, the plane pilot had entrusted the contestants still in the running with the order of gallons of olive oil from a burning Cabin to save Test in which the character played by Adèle Exarchopoulos did not survive to the chagrin (or not) of the hero.

Given this anthology of parodies, The torch will it match or even surpass it? Canal+ has definitely put the odds on its side and in particular has brought back certain iconic characters from The flame like Alexandra, Chataléré (Camille Chamoux), Anne (Ana Girardot) or even Marina (Géraldine Nakache). The four actresses will be joined by a promising cast that includes Jérôme Commandeur (host), Gérard Darmon, Kad Merad, Mister V and Jonathan Lambert.
