Les Marseillais is a French reality show broadcast on W9 since November 19, 2012, in the early evening. The show is produced by Banijay Productions France. It was born from the success of the program Les Ch'tis.
The series makes it possible to follow candidates mainly from the southeast of France who works in the world of the night. Their goal is to succeed professionally in different cities around the world while enjoying the heavenly location where the show is filmed.
Why It Sucks
- Misleading title: There are not only people from Marseille on this show, but it's more focused on people from the south-east of France.
- Similar to Keeping Up With the Kardashians which is not better it's a horrible show which is only there to entertain big jerks.
- It suffers from very unsympathetic and annoying characters.
- Julien Tanti is the worst of all of them. He loves looking for problems to ruin people and he comes out unscathed from his horrible actions making him a Karma Houdini.
- Maeva Ghenham is an idiot and a connase follower of surgery who annoys people.
- And the other characters Paga, Jessica, Benjamin, or even Manon are no better.
- There are only boring fight scenes over stupid things.
- The horrific 2-part episode "Trouble Night". Enough said.
- 85% of couples who form on this show are completely hypocritical because they tell each other life and death so that in the end they separate and then they tell each other that it's over so that they finally get back together. The couple Greg / Maeva is the worst example.
- The characters often say things that make them look like complete idiots, for example with someone saying that the earth is flat (we're not kidding).
- Boring theme song.
- The majority of real competitors are no better because they are scamming people on Instagram with Drop Shipping and giving them offers that are either never received or are completely bogus.
- The spin-offs Les Marseillais vs Le Reste du Monde and Objectif Reste du Mondeare are no better and makes the show even worse.
- Worse still it has been confirmed but the whole show is scripted from beginning to end which shows why couples are such hypocrites.
- Quantity over Quality: Similar to Teen Titans Go!, Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks and Keeping up with the Kardashians it's been going on for far too long despite the negative reception with 11 seasons over 600+ episodes and 2 equally worse spinoffs showing that M6 is blind to criticism.
- Overall this show is horrible and gives a bad image of reality TV in addition to giving a bad image of Marseille like other infamous reality TV shows.
The Only Redeeming Quality
- There are some likable characters.
Les Marseillais received a negative reception from critics and it holds a 1.8/10 on Senscritique although it has an 88% on Google users.
