Award winning “Alt for Norge” (English: Everything for Norway) is back with twelve adventurous Norwegian-Americans. In the sixth season, the reality program among other reconstructs the Norwegian heavy water sabotage during WW2.
For the sixth year in a row, TVNorge sends twelve charming and outspoken Norwegian-Americans across the country looking for their Norwegian roots. During ten episodes, the participants, who have never been to Norway, will learn all about the quirky Norwegian identity and our exciting history.
– Norway is so much more than just Brunost, Bunad (Editor’s note: National costumes) and happy people taking a Sunday walk. In fact, we have several rather peculiar traditions. This year, the participants are making “slow TV” while knitting on the Bergen Line, they will reconstruct the heavy water sabotage at Rjukan, and survive 24 hours in the wilderness, says hostess Henriette Bruusgaard to TVNorge.
The show is one of the most watched on TVNorge and all seasons have received nominations for best reality competition. In the sixth season, we meet among others a heavy metal musician, a Norwegian Native-American, a gay ex-pastor and a Mormon adrenaline junkie – and everyone is willing to give everything for Norway. They compete about who is “most Norwegian” and the winner gets to meet his/hers entire Norwegian family.
– “Alt for Norge” is based on something real, and the participants have a genuine motivation to find out more about their Norwegian roots. As always, the show will include crazy situations and lots of laughter, says Bruusgaard.
“Alt for Norge” season 6 premieres on Sunday, August 30 on TVNorge.
