The CSA intervened with the W9 chain following the diffusion of the emission the Marseillais, whom it analyzed in particular taking into consideration provision new relating to the women's rights of article 3-1 of the law of September 30th, 1986.

It indeed noted that certain scenes carried directly reached to the image of the women, in particular in the episode of April 27th, 2016, when the candidates of the emission introduce to a new arrival the candidates and ask him to classify them according to a degrading approach since they are reduced with their appearance, which constitutes a failure with these provisions.

He thus drew the attention of the persons in charge of the chain to the necessary respect of the provisions of article 3-1 of the law of September 30th, 1986 in the programs known as of “reality TV” – which can be favourable with the behaviour of bearing matter reached with the respect of the women's rights – in particular by making the choice not to diffuse certain remarks or behaviors since they are likely to enter in infringment with the obligations of the chain.

The CSA also specified with the chain that, in a more general way, it worried highly about the tonality and the competences of this emission which result in supporting the diffusion of sequences, dialogues, images and postures likely to give a representation of the women marked by devaluing stereotypes, present throughout this program.
