Sunday’s duel is probably something Farmin viewers won’t soon forget. Even before the duel began, the drama began.
When the first champion Benjamin Lien (32) and the second champion Tori Haraldust (62) took the stage to Parliament, the first champion suddenly burst into tears.
Benjamin puts his face in his hands and starts crying out loud. Leave the thing and go out to the field and squat. It won’t be long before presenter Niklas Barley (33) heads to the first champ to hear what’s going on.
– It’s going well, I’ll be back soon, the first hero replies, choking on tears.
After he collects himself, a duel begins, in which the second hero Tori chooses a sledgehammer. Tor wins the duel, and Benjamin quickly collapses, clearly exhausted.
Watch what Benjamin had to say after the dramatic loss in the video window at the top of the story.
Then the 32-year-old throws himself over the edge of the paint, and starts vomiting.
When TV 2 recently met Benjamin in his hometown of Stavanger, he shared new details about what happened to cause the dramatic duel.
Read what Benjamin answered to TV 2’s questions at the end of the story.
– I am disappointed
When TV 2 meets a exhausted Benjamin after the duel, the first natural question is what happened.
– I’m not quite fit, he explains, adding that he remembers little.
– I swallowed something I shouldn’t eat. He says maybe a red spirit, I don’t know.
Benjamin explains that he feels “crap”. Not only is he physically fine, but he’s going through tough times because now he’s taking him straight home for the 32-year-old. He talks about last week’s challenge on the farm.
Putting a foot on the farm again was great, but I was met with a half-cold shoulder. I soon realized that I wanted to be the number one hero. So it was just a matter of preparing for battle from the second we entered.
There’s a couple that I’m very disappointed with. At least in the past few days, he says, adding that he doesn’t want to go into detail about who it may concern.
He also reacts to how he feels differential treatment between the time his gang arrived from Turbat, and the gang that arrived from Turbat in the fifth week.
– I definitely had a different experience than Lacey when he entered the farm. Now it’s all about the competition and they see me as a big contender. They had some luck then, he says, referring to the various times the gangs arrived on the farm.

When TV 2 meets Benjamin in Stavanger, a few weeks after Farman’s taping ends, his dramatic exit once again becomes a topic of conversation.
TV 2 noticed that one of the participants in Farmen had sneaked something unusual into the giant booth the night before the showdown. It is a jump flower. This is shown on the huge cabin camera.
Watch Benjamin demonstrate the hop flower in the video below:
When TV 2 searches for hops, It is described as follows by the major Norwegian encyclopedias:
“Dried hops flowers are used as a sedative and diuretic, an effect caused by bitter substances. Hops have also been used, among other things, for sleep problems, colds, and intestinal worms.”
According to what TV 2 tests, you can also get physically ill if you consume too many hops, or if they are not properly prepared. When we brought this up with Benjamin, he said the following:
– Hops can make you sick. If you harvest fresh hops and ferment them, you can get sick. This was something that had dried up on a bush, so maybe I should make it in addition to that, he says, adding that he’s harvested hops before, and doesn’t think he made a potion that made him sick.
Although the 32-year-old doesn’t think hops caused his stomach issues, he doesn’t dismiss the idea entirely.
– In a way, I can neither confirm nor deny that it was the hops that made me feel sick, he says.
Benjamin says he didn’t go to the emergency room, but prioritized going home directly to the man. However, he admits it took a while before he felt good again.
It took two weeks for my stomach to settle. It can happen often. But I wasn’t too sick for much longer that I felt it necessary to go to the doctor.
Watch Benjamin’s answer as to why he thinks he’s bad in the video below:
You can see the farm on Tuesday and Wednesday at 21:40, Sunday at 20 on TV 2, and whenever you want on TV 2 play.
