Finally, the influencer with 4.5 million subscribers on Instagram and his best friend decided not to play the final round.
“Inès and Anaïs, we love you very much, you entered our hearts from the startbegins Abdallah. Valentin, Rachel, we laughed a lot together. Your complicity means a lot to us. your love too“, he continues. “On decides that today there will be no final duel“, then announces Riadh in front of the general amazement. “Riadh and I are going to leave“, completes his sidekick. “We want to look in a mirror when we go home“, he adds.
