Frank was revealed in Love is in the meadow 2021, on M6. The 48-year-old forester and market gardener fascinated, even sometimes annoyed, the public with his story with his suitors Cécile and Anne-Lise. Asked by Purepeoplehe returned to his relationship with the mother compared to Line Renaud.
How have you been since the end of filming?
Very well. I resumed my life before, based on work and my bond with my dog Oregon. It happens to me quite often to be arrested and it is not unpleasant knowing that it is always benevolent. It’s not like what happened on the internet during the broadcast. I had been roughed up a lot, but they never said anything in front of me. It is impressively cowardly. They don’t realize the harm they are doing. I did not expect that.
Does the production prepare you for this before shooting?
We are asked not to go and see what is being said on social networks. But our relatives are watching and telling us about it. So one day we go. And I’m not the type to give up. I answered several times, not very politely. But the production asked me to stop.
Where is your love life at now?
For now, it’s very quiet. It hasn’t changed too much, apart from the look of the ladies perhaps. I find him more benevolent. I was convinced not to please, so it gave me confidence and openings too.
During the adventure, you notably met Cécile, with whom you had an idyll. Unfortunately, it didn’t work, especially because you revealed that one of Cécile’s sons refused to let you love his mother. Why ?
It was one of the reasons why we couldn’t love each other like a real couple. You have to put yourself in Cécile’s place, it’s normal for a mother to go in the direction of her children. And I understand that her son wants to protect her from disappointment. She had a difficult relationship before me, with the father of her children. They must have suffered so I think he was scared. He was perhaps also afraid that she would be less present for him. A family that is recomposed following suffering has much stronger ties I think, ties that a person like me cannot necessarily understand. I’m not blaming anyone, it happened like that, that’s all.
Why else did it not work?
I’m pretty clumsy about some things. I have my faults and Cécile too. When it doesn’t work, it’s not necessarily one person’s fault. It can be a whole. But what made us separate is simple, these are all the comments that there were on the internet. Women who allowed themselves to give advice to Cécile and who said that I was not a good guy. I didn’t think it could hurt that much. Cécile read the comments every evening. Whatever I say, she was very present on social media during the broadcast. But when there is a failure somewhere, there may be a success behind it. We always get up.
Do you think a flashback is possible?
No. I was really in love with her, but when you explain things and we don’t understand or we don’t want to understand… It was a story between her and me, not between Internet users and us . We still had four months of great love. It ended when the show aired. We had separated before the filming of the balance sheet and we got back together just before. But then, Cécile couldn’t bear to see me with Anne-Lise during an episode. It’s a shame, we could have done something wonderful.
Did you stay in touch?
We remained friends, we see each other regularly. We have good relations. Something I would have liked with Anne-Lise. But she was upset with the way it happened between us, it’s a shame. I would have liked to stay on good terms with her. I’m different, maybe that’s also why it took me so long to find someone.
Different in what sense?
I drowned in work. I was waiting to have a more or less decent situation to start a family. It took longer than expected and now that it’s done, I may have missed the one that was right for me.
