In July 2000, the French discovered a new game show that was already a hit in several other countries: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire ?. A program based on multiple choice quizzeswith the possibility for the participant to use several jokers like calling a friend. During sixteen years, Jean-Pierre Foucault embodied this show which has become cult. Then in December 2018, he announced that he was passing the baton to Camille Combal for a return to the air of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire ? in January 2019. He still resumed his role with the new host as a guest during a special show before the “handover”. Finally, Camille Combal hosted the game, alone, until August 2020. As for Jean-Pierre Foucault, he gave up television broadcasts and is now devoting himself to radio:

This new host who “can’t wait” to present Who Wants to Be a Millionaire

Soon, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire ? will celebrate its 25th anniversary. On this occasion, TF1 will reschedule the game for two special evenings, with celebrities as candidates. If the concept will remain the same, the show will experience a major change, since it will not be presented by either Jean-Pierre Foucault or Camille Combal. In fact, the channel decided to call on another well-known entertainer :Arthur. “I am happy to announce that I will take up the torch from Jean-Pierre Foucault and Camille Combal in the presentation of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the show“, wrote the latter on May 23, 2024, in a Facebook publication. A new challenge that he is impatient to take on, according to the hashtag “haste” which he used.

Jean-Pierre Foucault should also be present

Arthur had dreamed of presenting this program for a long time. “I’ve been a guest on the show maybe 20 times, I would love to be on the other side“, he confided to Puremedias last January. For this anniversary, the numbers should be filmed at the Palais des Sports and not in the studio, according to information from Tele-Leisure. Jean-Pierre Foucault should be part of the party, either as a candidate or in a completely new role. As a reminder, he had already participated in the game in 2019 alongside Kev Adams. In 2015, he also teamed up with a former winner, Jaafar Meziane, during a number exceptionally presented by Laurence Boccolini.
