Monday August 8, 2022, M6 will broadcast the program 20 years of love on television. On this occasion, Olivier Siroux, ex-star of Bachelor, spoke about his new life far from the cameras in the columns of Télé Star.
That was nearly twenty years ago! In 2003, Olivier Siroux was the star of the show Bachelor, the bachelor gentleman. Each week, M6 viewers saw him offer a rose to the contenders he wanted to see stay in the adventure. In an interview with Télé Star, on newsstands Monday August 1, 2022, the former television star assured that he did not think of participating in a program that would change television codes. “I did not know this universe, I had a communication agency. When I was offered this program, I thought of Loft Story, and I let myself be tempted. While shooting it, I said to the production: ‘It will never work.’ Louis-Alexis de Gemini (ex-director of M6, editor’s note) answered me: ‘Think again, you may be going into the collective unconscious for decades…’ Apparently, that’s the case!“, he recalled.
If Olivier Siroux had chosen Alexandra, their story had only lasted a year. He explains today:We weren’t made for each other. However, I had a real crush. She too I believe. But in front of the cameras, the emotions are amplified. And love at first sight does not mean that love will be eternal.“Happy in his new life, the businessman confided: “I have been married to Aurélie for twelve years and I have three children: Andréas, 11, Raphaël, 8, and Jenna, 2. I am the head of the company Glastint, which manufactures tinting films for windshields and office windows. I recently worked for Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton.“
Olivier Siroux, would he have liked to continue in the media?
Today, the candidates of reality TV shows are elevated to the rank of stars and have hundreds of thousands, even millions of subscribers on social networks. Assuring that he has no regrets for not having broken into the media, Olivier Siroux slipped: “I didn’t aspire to that. But at the time, if I had been offered to do television, I would probably have accepted… insofar as this would have been compatible with the management of my company.“Despite everything, the ex-Bachelor is happy in his new life!
