The Traitors (M6): This rule of the game that annoyed viewers

This Wednesday, August 17, M6 drew Traitors, a new role-playing game presented by Eric Antoine. The concept ? Behind closed doors in a castle, 14 personalities compete in a game, where the key words are lies, manipulation and betrayal. Of the fourteen players, three have been designated as the Traitors. Their goal ? Not to be identified by the rest of the group, say the Loyal. The Traitors will therefore have to use all subterfuge to move forward in the shadows in order to win the game and the 40,000 euros promised to the winner.

In an environment where everyone suspects each other, it’s fun to watch! It’s a bit like in the series Columbo, where the viewer knows, from the start, who is the culprit, and watches the investigation unfold before his eyes, becoming the privileged witness of all the plots… “, Guillaume Charles, Director General of Programs at M6 told us at a press conference. An opinion far from being shared by some viewers, who from the start of the program were able to discover that the adventurer Clémence Castel, the wife of the Olympic champion Vanessa Douillet and the influencer Just Riah, were designated “traitors” by Eric Antoine. A rule of the game that received a more than mixed reception from the public, who also expected to lead the investigation.

“That’s a shame to have put the viewer in confidence as to the identity of the traitors…“. “Dshame that we know who is who… They could have given us only 2 names of traitors for example and let us look for the others”. “In fact it is clearly a pity to know the identity of the traitors It would have been a lot nicer to search with them. Suddenly we are simple spectators and it loses a huge interest. This 1st bonus is pretty cool, too bad that one knows the traitors from the beginning as a spectator“, can we read on Twitter. If some therefore admit to being disappointed, M6 still achieves a hit audience with 2.6 million curious people, and signs a record start for entertainment since Loft Story.
