ALBERT LEA, Minn. (AP) - A casting company is seeking Minnesota residents of Norwegian descent who'd be willing to compete in a reality TV show in Norway.

O'Connor Casting Co. is holding an open call Dec. 1 at the Mall of America for all Norwegian-Americans interested in auditioning. Those selected will appear on the fourth season of Norway's Emmy Award-winning show "Alt for Norge."

An Albert Lea Tribune report says the show stars 12 Norwegian-Americans who fly to Norway and dive into the culture and customs. The contestants face challenges designed to build their endurance and test their courage. The winner receives $50,000 in cash.

The casting company says it's looking for "ambitious, adventure-seeking Americans with Norwegian blood who are 18 years or older and have never traveled to Norway."
