Ayem Nour is a French TV presenter, columnist, model, actress, and reality-TV star, initially known for being a co-presenter on the French reality-TV, comedy series Le Mag between 2011 and 2013, after which she became the main TV presenter between 2016 and 2017. Ayem was also a participant in the 5th season of the NT1 channel’s reality-TV show, Secret Story in 2011 but was the 10th one to be eliminated. Ayem’s appearance there was noticed by the director of ‘NRJ 12’ TV channel group, which was behind Le Mag and Le Mad Mag, and landed her the role of Ayem Stevens in TV series Hollywood Girls (2012-2015), and Hollywood Girls 2 (2012). Ayem has also hosted columns such as Hollywood News, as well as a premium show, The Angels of Reality on NT1.
Even though she initially befriended Nabilla Benattia, a colleague who helped her establish herself as a presenter, the two argued often, which contributed to Ayem’s May 2013 disappearance from the program. Luckily, she came back a month later and cited the reason as physical and psychological fatigue from the job, as well as being roughly treated by the media for accusations about her past. She was also absent from the TV screens until the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and was also a presenter for the ‘June’ channel between September 2014 and early 2016. She came back to present Le Mad Mag at the beginning of 2016, and remained there until April 2016, after which she was gone until October 2016 because of her pregnancy. Finally, Ayem was the show’s main presenter until November 2017, after which Le Mad Mag was taken off the channel due to a low number of views.
