In the history of TV games, only one candidate had pocketed a million euros. She was also from Occitanie. Marie Friedel, a stay-at-home mother from the Gers, had hit the jackpot in “Who wants to win millions?” in August 2004.

Over the course of his exploits, Bruno Hourcade has won many gifts. Thus, he has already won nine cars! Impossible for him to ask for money in exchange. “I won nine cars but it’s up to me to sell them”, explains Bruno to Parisian. “I can do it the next day. I have no obligation to keep them for a certain period of time, for example.” On the other hand, for cash income, he receives them only after the program has been broadcast.

Bruno Hourcade, in his thirties, has been accumulating records since his participation in the “12 blows of noon”. There’s one feat he hasn’t beaten yet: the world record for winning a TV game. The Spaniards of Los Lobos had won 4,130,000 euros in the game “Boom” in 2019.
