Almost a month after the end of his adventure “ Dance with the stars “, the time has come to take stock Nico Capone. Coming in second place, just behind the big winner Natasha St-Pier, the influencer had a remarkable career during the competition. After a difficult start, he quickly improved through hard work and determination, becoming one of the jury’s favorites. If on set and on the floor, he only received compliments, on social networks the atmosphere was more difficult to bear. Indeed, even before the launch of this 12th season, upon the announcement of his participation, he suffered numerous fatophobic attacks, which continued during the adventure.

Featured in the portrait of the week of “ 50mn Inside », the father of little Mattia returned to this trying experience. “It was hard, complicated. This is the first time I received so much hatred… I even received calls. They started leaving messages calling me fat, saying that I couldn’t participate in a show like that, that I was going to break the floor, that I was going to destroy the dancer,” he said. But it was especially for his family that he was worried, in particular his wife Daniela, who took these attacks badly. “When she saw these comments, she called me crying. She really wanted me to stop the show, she told me so. We didn’t deserve this! And it’s true that we don’t deserve that, we only make humorous videos and when I saw this hatred that I received, this wave of anger, I didn’t understand why. » he confided.

Ultimately, Nico Capone hung on, for the game, but also because he had an important message to convey, as Isabelle Ithurburu recalled. “I wanted to show and prove to people that with a strong build, we can dance, we can accept ourselves. And that was the main thing. » he assured. The adventure actually did him a lot of good, especially since he had some difficulties because of his weight. “When I started dancing, I was 166 kilos. It’s huge for the knees, the breathing, the physique. It was very, very complicated. I lost 18 kilos in this adventure. For me, it was a challenge. » he revealed.
