Alt for Norge Reality Show Casting Call


alt for norge 1The Producers of Norway’s version of “Dancing With The Stars” and “American Idol” are returning to
the U.S. for a third time to find fun, outgoing Americans with Norwegian ancestry to participate in
Season Three of their enormously successful reality television series “Alt for Norge” (aka “The Great
Norway Adventure”).

O’Connor Casting Company is conducting a nationwide search for adventurous Americans with
Norwegian ancestry (even a little bit counts) who are interested in auditioning. The series follows 12
Norwegian-Americans who fly to Norway and immerse themselves in the culture and compete in a
series of extreme challenges that test their skills, courage and determination. The winner receives a
CASH prize of $50,000.00 and will meet Norwegian relatives they don’t even know exist.

“We’re looking for people who have a deep curiosity or passion for their Norwegian heritage, and want
to have a life changing adventure,” says David O’Connor, Director of Casting at Chicago’s O’Connor
Casting Company. “Last Season’s contestants came from all over the United States with a variety of
careers including a Cowboy, Truck Driver, Massage Therapist and Theme park designer.”

Maryland contestant Kimberly Nolan, who is dubbed Season two’s “Single Gal” says, “The experience
was magical. Even though I didn’t win, I got to do everything my ancestors would be doing if they
weren’t brave enough to emigrate to the U.S.” Nolan, who slept in an ice cave and visited the church
where her ancestors were baptized and married, also brought home a prize. “I met my Norwegian
boyfriend as a result of being on the show.”

Season Two winner Matt Rowe says there’s nothing like this experience in the world. “Sure the
landscape was beautiful and the challenges were really exciting, but it’s the people who make Norway
special.” He adds, “And that’s something every cast member experienced because we were there for
2 weeks before anyone was eliminated.” Rowe forged so many friendships including his thirty
newfound relatives that he’s thinking of moving to Norway for a few years.

There are more than 4.5 million Norwegian-Americans living in the United States and every one of
them can apply. Just go to http://oconnorcasting.tv/castingboard to download the application and

“The Great Norway Adventure 3,” will air in Norway under the title “Alt for Norge 3” and potentially
other countries as well. This series is produced by Monster Entertainment and is rated Norway’s #1
