– It's going to be absolutely epic

The premiere is fast approaching, and Lauritzen believes viewers have a lot to look forward to. This, for example, is the first time that registration has been transferred from Setnesmoen camp in Åndalsnes to Bømoen camp in Voss.

– It will be a very great season. “It's actually a little reminiscent of the first season, because at the time no one was prepared and no one knew what they were getting into,” Lauritzen says.

-We constantly try to make each season a little different, so not everything is predictable. This time we are in a new area with wonderful nature. Just wait and see, a little bit of everything will happen. We may have never reached such an advanced final before. I think the final will be absolutely epic.

Without giving too much away, Se og Hør can reveal that there were already some tears among the participants in the first episode. Just the, It has also been seen in the 67-year-old throughout the “Company” years.

– I am an emotional person, and Christian bullies me for that from time to time, but there is no doubt that age makes me more sensitive to emotions. I was impressed to see that they are fighting and succeeding, and that they are taking the steps they are taking. When I hold appeals and the like, I see that something is moving, and it's fun to see that I'm touching something in them.

It works around the clock

Since Lauritzen has now traveled to record again, he will be out for about a month. In the fall, there will be five weeks until the “regular” version is registered.

– It goes in one go. We mostly work around the clock. The last meetings end at 11 p.m., and then we usually have to get up again at 7 a.m. the next day, he says.

- I won't return it

Even if he doesn't walk around in a colonel's uniform in the summer, he still spends a lot of time at work. About four weeks are spent each year in France – for work, of course.

– Without being 100% sure, I think it will be the 32nd or 33rd time I participate in the Tour de France this year. I've cycled eight times and been there more than 20 times with TV 2, plus a few other things.

– Maybe you've done enough

In other words – the work takes a lot of time. Although he turned 67 last year, which is retirement age in Norway.

-I've been at an age when most people retire. Laughs, I can get a courtesy ticket on buses and trains.

Daughter: - I think it's crazy

Lauritzen continues a little more seriously.

– I try to say that age is just a number, but then I notice that it's a bit old. I try to stay fit and enjoy being with the people I work with, but of course I don't need to work as much as I do now. Maybe I'll have to slow down a bit… I guess.

– No, I don't have it. But of course it also depends on TV 2, Christian and the rest of the gang. We have some ideas about other things too, he says vaguely.

-Maybe I'm a little used to a different life than an eight-to-four job. I think I enjoy days that are a little more unpredictable and a little different things to do. Maybe you're not the classic eight-to-four office guy. I think I would have retired then.
