More like a little chat than an actual interview, the discussion with Brian Joubert took place a few hours prior to “Kings on Ice Olympic Gala” in Bucharest and focused on the things important to him right now; these days, Brian takes part in a French TV show, “Danse avec les stars”, competing alongside a professional dancer, Katrina Patchett. But, at the same time, it is very difficult, because we have to work a lot, every week we have to change the dance. Is dancing more physically demanding than figure skating? Actually, no – the problem with “Dancing with the stars” is that is difficult for me to practice for both. To finish with, how was the last Olympics you attended, the one in Sochi? Of course, I’m a little bit disappointed about the score, about the results, but I didn’t care about it. I did four Olympic Games and it was always bad, I had a lot of bad feelings.
In Bucharest, at “Kings on Ice” – exactly as it happened two years ago, at his first visit – Brian was greeted like a king. by Florentina Tone From where I stand, you’re doing a slalom between “Danse avec les stars” (DALS) in Paris and “Kings on Ice Olympic Gala” in Bucharest… So, this time, I enjoyed the practice, the atmosphere in the Olympic Village…
Anyone who lives with Brian Joubert must accept his ups and downs and appreciate Brian's need for times of withdrawal.
Brian Joubert is also very sympathetic and understands the unspoken feelings and needs of others.
He has to his credit a world championship in 2007, three European championships and six French championships.
His reputation extends to French television where he has appeared on a long-running reality television series "Fort Boyard" ans "Danse avec les Stars".
He may feel that he cannot depend on his love partner to take care of him or perhaps Joubert cannot decide what he really wants in love relationships: a parent or a lover.
Though he yearns for close relationships, Brian Joubert often closes himself off and does not really trust others who may wish to get to know him.The most recent screenshot for this website was taken on Jul 30th, 2015. When we checked 143 days ago, we did not see any significant changes.We have 13 historic screenshots of dating back to Jun 25th, 2005.A burst of enthusiasm followed both of his programs and the (adored) French skater looked like he had a wonderful time during the show: he took a walk in the crowded arena, shook hands with people in the audience, kissed a girl and received flowers – and, given the warmth of the public and Brian’s response to that, I’m sure we’ll see him again in Bucharest the following years. Actually, while heading to Romania, you wrote on twitter: “Direction Bucarest pour le show Kings on ice. At the end of the interview, I’m approached by a group of Brian’s admirers: “Does he have a girlfriend? Will you be jumping difficult jumps like the Triple Axel? It’s going to be “The Lord of the Dance” and “I gotta feeling”, Black Eyed Peas. I finished third and I was qualified for the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City – so it was a big moment for me. Yes, it’s going to be more difficult because the ice is small and the quality, not perfect; and we have to be careful, don’t get injured… But I think that in a few months I will miss competition, of course. But this first summer, without having to train for competition, it was very, very good. Looking back, is there a moment that you remember more than others, a moment that stayed with you for years? A long time ago, in 2002, in Switzerland, Lausanne.Brian Joubert responds very strongly to the emotional tone and atmosphere around him, and can be dominated by his fluctuating and unpredictable moods.Joubert often appears irrational to others because he cannot always explain the reason or source of his feelings.During the 2010 Olympics, Weir became the center of an animal rights controversy by wearing fox fur on his skating costume at that event.He received attacks from the animal rights groups Friends of Animals and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
