After Éric Zemmour on December 16, it is the turn of Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the candidate for the presidential election of France Insoumise, to participate in the program “Face à Baba” on C8, this Thursday January 27 at from 9 p.m.
The recipe for the show remains the same, since ten interlocutors – five opponents and five sympathizers – will face the one who is running for the third time for the supreme mandate. Cyril Hanouna announces a “very strong” program, with face-to-face meetings where the debate of ideas will be particularly bitter. Among the opponents, viewers will find in particular the lawyer Charles Consigny, while Aymeric Caron – who was already present in the first broadcast – will be in the camp of sympathizers.
Éric Zemmour as main opponent
But it is the presence of Éric Zemmour against Jean-Luc Mélenchon that will mark the highlight of the evening. The two men had already opposed on BFM TV on September 23 during a long debate. According to Cyril Hanouna, the leader of the Reconquest! is the only one to have agreed to come, Valérie Pécresse and Marine Le Pen having refused to come and debate with Jean-Luc Mélenchon. “So he is the first to intervene! He is the only one who wanted to come and confront Jean-Luc Mélenchon, for a second time, ”said the host.

Like Elisabeth Moreno during the first issue with Éric Zemmour, whose face-to-face had been the longest (nearly half an hour), it is to be expected that the debate between this last and Jean-Luc Mélenchon lasts the longest.
On December 16, Cyril Hanouna smashed all audience records with Face à Baba, bringing together more than 2 million viewers on average, becoming the most watched prime time program since the creation of TNT.
