Tout le monde pronunciation

Bonjour, To my beginner's ear, it sounds like in some of the answers the French speaker pronounces each word (tout le monde) distinctly and others the "le" gets glossed over. Am I just not hearing correctly or is there a preference?

Merci!

Spoken French is extremely variable (but not as bad as German, so don't complain ;) ) in what gets pronounced and what is swallowed up. Most of the time I hear tout le monde pronounced as "too l'mo", but I'm sure other variants exist.
