Frank Cuesta during his time at ‘El Hormiguero’.
After a time away from television, Frank Cuesta already has a new program. His name is Carretera Salvaje and he has presented it in El Hormiguero, where he has met Pablo Motos again to talk about this space that he has recorded together with the co-founder of Vox, Cristina Seguí. Although it is a project that sounds very interesting and that surely delights his followers, we will have to wait to see it because the adventurer has recognized that space “has no chain.”
“We have almost completed four episodes, we want to give eight or ten. Today is the starting point. If you want to present something well, you have to go to El hormiguero ”, she has recognized. His hope is that “some chain or platform” wants it “at some point”, but if that doesn’t happen he has an alternative plan, “I’ll put it on YouTube. If I don’t care ”, he said.

Although his project has been the focus of the talk with Motos, Frank has also taken advantage of his time at the chain to tell how his ex-wife, Yuyee, who spent six years in a Thai jail after finding 5 milligrams of cocaine in a search, is doing. “He has recovered, but he has many flaws and fears,” he said about her, acknowledging that luckily “she has adapted very well, especially because of the children.”

When he got out of prison, almost two years ago, they recommended that the best thing he could do was take refuge in his children, Zorro, Zen, Pepsi and Zape. “I evaporated. They told me that the best thing was to leave her alone with the children and I did that ”, the television has narrated. Although her ex-partner is getting better every day, she “when she arrived she had trouble sleeping, something that is more or less normal, but she also had a lot of fears. She would get scared if she heard a plane, if she saw a policeman…”, she added.
Yuyee is now in the background, still recovering her life, but she wanted to take the opportunity to thank Pablo Motos and the El Hormiguero team for their support. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Pablo Motos and his team for publicizing the unfair prison sentence that I had to serve. I have felt your support at all times and I will be eternally grateful ”, she said in a video.
Frank Cuesta and Yuyee continue to live in Thailand, but he wanted to make it clear that he is not doing it for her, but “because I have the sanctuary there.” A space for the recovery of animals called Libertad Sanctuary that has become the most special project of his life, because in it he helps all the animals that need it so that they can live in freedom, calm and away from danger.
Due to this closeness to the animal kingdom, Cuesta has not hesitated to harshly criticize the Animal Welfare Law, on which he had already spoken (and not for the better) on his social networks. “Animal Law is fucking shit,” he summarized. “If they commission me to make an animal law tomorrow, I tell them that I can’t. I would tell them, ‘you take the largest association of veterinarians, ranchers, farmers, forest rangers, breeders and pet shops, biologists, people who know and have animals. And with them you make the law. You don’t take a sculptor, Pipi Longstocking and the girl on the curve, you can’t”, he said.

In his opinion, “those of the PSOE and Podemos have made a law for pets” given that a large number of species such as bulls and hunting dogs have been left out. “They know they can’t touch each other. You touch the bulls and you touch the purest environmentalism. (…) I’m not anti-bullfighting but I think the bulls are there. If people see them and support them, the day they stop supporting them they will disappear”, the herpetologist assured.

The guest’s criticism did not end there. Frank Cuesta took advantage of his return to lament that “we live so well at this time in the history of Spain” that for this reason “we have become assholes. We complain about everything.” “We all have to be vegans, feminists… I just can’t say if this cup is black or white, you can’t say anything in this country. You are afraid to speak. You have the flag of Spain and they call you facha… ”, he has finished, showing his discontent.
