If you’ve always dreamed of being in the limelight, and you’re Norwegian-American, now’s your chance: a casting company is asking for applicants for the next season of Norwegian reality TV show, “Alt for Norge,” which translates to “The Great Norway Adventure.”
Chicago’s O’Conner Casting company is doing a nationwide search for contestants for season 5 of the show, in which 12 Norwegian-Americans are flown to Norway to compete in a series of challenges that test their skills, courage and determination, according to the casting company. The winner gets $50,000 and will get to meet Norwegian relatives, “they don’t even know exist,” the casting company tells us.
Season 1 winner, Doug Miner, was from Seattle. Joan O’Connor, casting producer says in a statement that the show is the most popular reality TV show in Norway. “Watching Americans experience culture shock and following their emotional journey seems to really connect with Norwegian viewers. And the contestants have a total blast and become overnight Norwegian TV stars,” O’Connor says.
The deadline to apply is Sunday, Dec. 1. The casting company asks that applicants have a Norwegian ancestry, be over 18, and have never traveled to Norway. To learn more or apply, click here.
