A year ago, when TVA was about to air If we like each otherEmily Baejin and Clouds LeMay Thieferge told us that by watching episodes of the docu series, they were almost “angry with themselves” when they saw Mary Yves and Jonathan at life-size in the Middle Ages.
At the time of our interview, we thought they were thick, but after a few weeks, when we saw the uncomfortable sequences they described to us, we realized that they weren’t exaggerating anything. This is why this year, when we hear the couple talk about a yoga session with such enthusiasm, we are already salivating too much. “We cried with laughter! Emily Begin shouts. When I think about it, I’m still not comfortable!”
Returning to the second season that fans of reality shows of this kind have been waiting with impatience, If we like each other We will be immersed in the world of three single people bent on breaking their romantic behavior: Brigitte, a 53-year-old mom who loves to ride bikes, Sebastian, a 35-year-old singer who has never been in a relationship, and clouds, a 31-year-old athlete who should learn Communicate better.

Despite everything, viewers will not be under the impression that they are hearing the same things again, as confirmed by Emily Biggin and Guillaume Lemay Thieferge.
“They are three completely different candidates,” the actor explains. We are in another place. They come with their own color. “
« The occupation is doubleAnd the VoiceAnd the star Academy… they’re fun shows because they’re not superfluous, the singer adds. Once there is a new world, that changes. It is the same with our offer. “
And according to them, the 2021 coffe for the participants is more fun than 2020.
“I was afraid to be more conservative, but on the contrary!” Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge says the opposite is true. They are very open and generous. It looks like there is no “Kodak”! They don’t have a filter. Sometimes I wanted to Telling them: “You know you’re being photographed right now, right?” Because they say really personal things. But they realize that they have to give themselves completely to be able to walk.
