Dorthe Skappel fulfilled her great wish for Farmen kendis

SØGNE / Oslo (Dagbladet): Last summer, Dorothy Skapelle (61 years old) drove the “Farmen kendis” team for the first time. Last week it began its second season, when 12 new celebrities moved to Friedheim Farm in Sogni outside Kristiansand.

After the previous round, Skappel told Se og Hør that she wanted changes in her daily life “Farmen”. First and foremost, get permission to be closer to the participants. The presenter also thought that commuting to and from recording was a problem.

Now that her wish has been fulfilled, Skappel revealed when Se og Hør met her on the second day of recording her second season “Farmen kendis”. This time she lives just a “stone's throw” away from the production site.

– How has it been so far?

The first day was strange, as usual. There are new people on the farm, you have to get to know each other and figure out who to deal with – and then I had to find a place to live. But now it has calmed down well again.

She continues:

-I found a balcony with a deck chair that I bought yesterday. Knitted clothes and a good book, you'll be fine, she says with a smile.

The experienced TV queen thinks it's great not to have to commute, especially since the recording takes place several hours away from the family home on Oslo's Nordstrand.

-Moving is never fun. Because you're getting out of the bubble, but not completely out of it, if you understand. Last year I thought I would like to be more involved if the production would let me. I want to be more available to participants, and it may be easier now. I am very happy with that. It can't get better.

– I hope you get better

Skappel was not heavily involved in the process of convincing participants to appear on the program. But she received updates during the casting process.

– It's not good when too many chefs come and say something about the participants, so I understand that. But I definitely want to be more than just a presenter. I will be supportive of the participants and will be there for them if they want to come to me. It's a tough balancing act when I'm also out and about a bit.

– It may seem like things will get better this year, right?

-I hope things get better, yes. There are several reasons why it might at least get better. First of all, I'm going to live here, and it only takes seven minutes to get here by boat. I made it very clear that I wanted it that way. I don't know if they'll benefit from it or not, but I hope I can be brought into the field when something happens.

Don't be afraid of missed

At home, Skappel is survived by her husband, John. She also plays the role of a mother and grandmother, but she thinks she will have a few problems adjusting to being away from her family.

-I'm pretty good at exactly that, I'll tell you! When you're gone, you're gone. Because he has a young daughter at home, and he's worried that he'll miss her so much, she told Brinegar (Milling, 57, editor's note): She told him he should turn that picture of her upside down, and put it in her place. Safe place. And wait to look at him until he is on his way home.

Skappel warns that she will not call them home and is in pain while she is away.

– No, I was not created like this. I'm at work now. Here I am, and this is what's on my mind right now. The five or six weeks go by quickly. “That's how I've always been,” the former Good Evening Norway presenter tells Se og Hør.
