Who are the favorites?
If we look at the popularity of Misses on Instagram, the most popular is Miss Guyana. She is ahead of Miss Réunion and Miss Nord-Pas-de-Calais. According to Avisia, a data science firm that collects photos, comments and likes posted on the Misses, artificial intelligence promises to select Miss Guadeloupe. Last year, this artificial intelligence made a mistake by betting on Miss Martinique.
Where are the elections held this year?
The election is held at MACH 36 in Déols near Châteauroux in Indre. However, it is traditional to organize the pageant in the region of the outgoing Miss. Therefore, Paris had to be chosen. This option was not possible due to the lack of available room size – the Zénith de Paris hosts Disney on Ice – but also the financial agreement with the local authorities shows 20 minutes.
Who will present the competition?
The indomitable Jean-Pierre Foucault will be the master of ceremonies. If he reduced his television and radio activities, he remains loyal to the election he will present… for the 27th time! “It’s the one last great live entertainment show. Live is my thing,” he explains Television magazine. Sylvie Tellier, outgoing president of the Miss France society, will be with her for the last time. Not forgetting Thierry Baumann, who was responsible for announcing the numbers of Mrs. and the phone number to dial to vote.
What is the chosen topic?
After last year’s musicals, this year’s movie theme was chosen. Misses will abandon this theme through nine paintings inspired by various and diverse films such as “Harry Potter”, “The Avengers” or “Titanic”. Producer Frédéric Gilbert promises a show “less slick and shiny than before.” One candidate will ride on Harry Potter’s broom and the other will parachute down from the ceiling!
Who presides over the jury?
The organizers have chosen actor Francis Huster to chair the jury this year.
Who makes up the jury?
Frances Huster will be flanked by judoka Clarisse Agbegnenou, singer Kendji Girac, producer Dominique Besnehard, comedian Arnaud Ducret and Miss France 2023 Marine Lorphelin. Singer Camille Lelouche canceled her tour on Thursday “for reasons beyond her control”. She is replaced by actress and comedian Bérengère Krief.
Who will sing during the election?
Gims and Carla Bruni will sing in the evening.
How will the new Miss be chosen?
Even before the show, half of the thirty issues have already been eliminated. 15 finalists have already been selected by the preliminary selection judges. Their names will be announced during the show. 50% of the audience will be able to vote to select five finalists, the remaining 50% of which will be chosen by the jury before Miss France 2023 is chosen.
What will Miss France 2023 win?
The new Miss will be an employee of the Miss France company that will pay her. He will stay in the company apartment in Paris. She received a free Peugeot 2008, business class travel for two to Paris/Pointe-à-Pitre, a seven-day, six-night stay in Guadeloupe for two, a Macbook Pro 16-inch computer, a Samsung TV, a Jott jacket, eight Festina watches, treatments at the Sothys Institute, and A wardrobe of clothes from the brand Le temps des cerfs.
