Like the great masters From Don’t forget the lyricsor even the almost unbeatable candidates of Everyone wants to take its place, Enzo stands out as a big revelation of game shows. And what surprises is his profile. This 18-year-old young man, diagnosed with HPI (High Intellectual Potential), is a student in business and administration management. But on the sidelines of a school career that he wishes to transform into a step towards professional achievement, the person concerned has set himself the goal of performing in The Grand Slamon France 3. And it is clear that he is writing his name in the legend of the program presented every Sunday by Cyril Feraud. This June 5, he simply chained his nineteenth victory. He got rid of three former challengers. His prize pool now stands at 118,000 euros. A sum that frankly has nothing insignificant for a participant just out of adolescence.
Cyril Féraud annoyed, he responds to accusations of cheating

Despite this clear and firm focus, fans of the Grand Slam are not convinced by the personality of Enzo. Some continue to overwhelm him, like this anonymous person who finally writes in the comments: “Since the arrival of this candidate I no longer watch the show and moreover you should tell him not to type like crazy on the buzzer. When is he leaving?” Hard, hard to be a champion…
