“I’m happy that he’s my new co-host because he’s very easy to get along with. It’s nice to work with people like him,” Solenn said.
“Every year, for the past six years, we’ve been offering different flavors to our viewers and Taste Buddies has found its identity with a mix of lifestyle and the quirkiness of the people in show from Belle to Iya to Rhian and now Gil,” she added.
For her part, Solenn said having a male co-host is a breath of fresh air. “I’m sure having Gil in the show will really be fun. He will bring a new dynamic since he is a guy and I cannot wait for our adventures together. It will be an interesting mix and viewers should watch out for it,” she shares.
