He is the big winner of Koh-Lanta, The Sacred Fire. On the evening of Tuesday June 13, 2023, Frédéric won season 24 of the adventure game hosted by Denis Brogniart on TF1. After a breathtaking final from the Philippines to the Seine-Saint-Denis plateau, the commercial director won against the “survivor” Tania with seven votes (against two) from the final jury.

The day after the final, Frédéric Khouvilay struggled to come down from his cloud and multiplied the requests in the media. Asked by Planet, the adventurer admits that he did not sleep a wink all night. “I celebrated my victory all evening, it was an incredible moment”. A victory that he dedicates to his future wife Marine.

“I thought of her first when I heard my name. It’s wonderful, because she was the one who pushed me to sign up for the show,” says the entrepreneur who will say yes. to his Franco-Portuguese companion on July 1, before continuing the festivities in August in Portugal. If he intends to invest the 100,000 euros for their honeymoon, Frédéric has another ambition: the opening of his cocktail bar.

“It’s a big project in which I had thought of investing before my departure for Koh-Lanta”, confides to us the candidate who is still refining “his business plan, his menu of dishes and drinks” with his associates. For him, the objective would be for him to open his establishment in mid-2024 in the vicinity of Boulogne-Billancourt or Issy-les-Moulineaux. Perhaps the opportunity to receive his companions of adventure around a coconut-based cocktail or grilled fish skewers…

The Koh-Lanta adventure was also rich in twists and strategies for Frédéric. A strong member of the “power 4” alliance with Gilles, Nicolas and his friend Quentin, the 30-year-old has shown himself to be a strategist and loves “to play like in a game of Werewolf”.

After suffering for a long time with a foot injury and battling fatigue, he won the posts and picked young Tania for the final. “The adventure brought us together and we managed to get along during the linked destinies” recognizes his partner who regrets having given his word to his Corsican ally Nicolas. What if we offered him a Koh-Lanta All-Stars? “I would not say no, obviously it cannot be refused”.
