While the criteria for running for Miss France seem to be easing, Mareva Galanter did not hide her surprise. The former defending champion explains why this role is not compatible with family life.
Great upheaval within the Miss France. Since the arrival of Alexia Laroche-Joubert as president of the Miss France society, the beauty contest seems to be evolving at full speed. And in particular concerning its conditions for competing. Before being crowned Miss France, title contenders must abide by certain rules like that of not having posed naked, that of being aged 18 to 24, measuring at least 170 cm or even not being married and not having children. Except that now the competition seems to be open to new women. Thus, transgender women – who until then had not had the opportunity to present themselves – now have their place among the other candidates. The rule no longer being to be “born female“but to be”registered in the civil registry as being female“. It is for the election of Miss Paris that, for the first time, a transgender candidate is therefore preparing to try her luck. But now older women and mothers also seem to be able to present themselves.
This is the case for the Miss Alsace election, as reported by our colleagues from Latest News from Alsace. A certain Victoire Rousselot, 27 years old and mother for three years, will participate in the regional beauty contesthoping to win her place for Miss France 2023. Information that is far from delighting Mareva Galanter. Miss France 1999 has a fairly clear-cut opinion on the matter, believing that this year of reign is not compatible with a family life. “Miss France has such a commitment on a daily basis, for me, it is not possible. I am more open to the fact that a Miss France is transgender than to the fact that a Miss France is a mother. It is very hard“, she lets go in front of the Buzz TV cameras of the Figaro this Tuesday, June 7. And to develop:You work every day. You are constantly traveling. And I do not see the life of a mother compatible with the life of a Miss France. It is not possible“.
Will Sylvie Tellier and Alexia Laroche-Joubert let a mother run for Miss France 2023?
“Mother hen” from a little Manava of almost seven years old, Mareva Galanter organizes herself to be as present as possible for her daughter, doing her best to “free up time to pick her up from school or spend weekends” with her. Except that this is impossible for a Miss Francesince she “has no weekends or public holidays and has a life devoted to her title of Miss France“, explains Arthur’s companion. the chances of Victoire Rousselot being able to present herself at Miss France 2023 as Miss Alsace seem compromised. It’s hard to imagine that Alexia Laroche-Joubert and Sylvie Tellier will come back to this criterion which seems important to them, both the president and the general manager of Miss France insisted on this point during the previous election – which crowned Diane Leyre . They are in fact totally connected to the fact that family life and Miss France are not reconcilable.
