Ashley Hadland (20) stayed on One of Kompani Lauritzen’s two winners: Tropp 1. But no one close to him found out that he had won – not even his parents.
– I decided not to tell anyone, not even mom and dad, Hetland told TV 2.
– It’s fun that they’re curious, especially mom. “After everything I’ve done for you, I guess you can say this!”, she tells me. But I kept it a secret because it would be confusing to say a little to some and a little to others. It’s easy that no one knows anything.
more than 3,000 have applied About joining Team 1, but Only 12 were selected. Hatland’s mother became suspicious when she learned that her son was going to participate in a reality show that had been signed up by a friend. As the programs began airing on TV 2, skepticism slowly but surely turned into excitement.
– It has completely changed. Now the strange thing is that she insists that they show me Small. She was skeptical, a little more skeptical of the whole thing. She thinks it’s scary to be shown all over Norway.
Change in plans
Hetland still lives at home with his parents in the municipality of Gleb in Geren, Rogaland. However, as Trap 1 stayed in Chetnesmoen, he plans to leave the nest.
– Kompani Lauritzen deserves a lot of credit for that. I put myself out there and told myself enough is enough. I broke a barrier and now realize that living alone is better. At Kompani Lauritzen, I had to be alone sometimes and it went well, he says.
The 20-year-old is now embarking on a two-year plan to save enough money to afford higher education on his own.
– I will leave in the summer of 2024. If I had the money I would have moved by now. I don’t know where yet. I saw Kristiansand, but who knows? But I knew it would be a technical vocational school specializing in electricity. “Before, I had a 30-year plan to get out when I was 30,” he says with a laugh.
Diploma and permanent job
Not only did his attitude change after Kompani Lauritzen was registered in the spring of 2022.
Recently, he received a vocational certificate, which means he has gone from apprentice to permanent employee of lnett as an energy fitter, which is not without risk.
– If you make a mistake in this job, you’re lucky if you survive. So, we cannot do wrong. HSE (Health, Environment and Safety, Daily Note) Above is, so to speak.
Hetland was not injured on the job, but he has suffered multiple concussions while volunteering for the Glebe Free Church.
– I have been electrocuted four or five times. You know, it’s a good move. In case of electric shock, seek medical attention. I called the doctor each time and was told that if I didn’t have any discomfort after that, I could skip coming to the doctor’s office. “I’ve never needed it, but the next time it happens I’ll see a doctor,” he says with a laugh.
The misunderstanding led to the profession
The fact that he works as an energy fitter comes from a funny misunderstanding.
– I was a serious gamer in high school and could play for eight to ten hours every day. I heard it was an electro line in high school and thought I could play PC all day. “I applied and got in, but quickly realized I was completely wrong about what it was,” he says with a laugh.
– But I thought it was very interesting. So I was very lucky.
In his second year of electrical studies, he doubted whether he really wanted to be an electrician, but when he was introduced to the energy course, he felt a spark within him.
– I noticed right away that this is what I wanted, he says.
Tuesday Was Gang
Although her schedule is packed with work — and several volunteer positions for the Free Church and House of Prayer at the Glebe — she has a Tuesday tradition.
– I broke up with a potential girlfriend a year ago and had a rough time after that. Then me and three friends started what we called the “Tuesday Was Gang” where we would meet every Tuesday at 4pm at the petrol station in Woll. There we are eating burgers and talking openly to each other about all sorts of weird things. We express our thoughts. And after the burgers, we go out and make mugs.
– Yes. We do what we want. Maybe we do charity work for church or go to car dealerships and look at cars. We love cars, learning about them and looking at them.
Looking for love
Like many others TV personality, Hadland – who is single – also receives check messages via social media. He enjoys being single, but doesn’t hide the fact that he wants a girlfriend.
– I am 20 years old, not very experienced, so it is clear that I am looking for a girlfriend. But there are certain requirements and standards that I expect, for example she must be a Christian. I’m not on any dating sites or anything, but I do get messages from girls on Snapchat and Instagram. Good news, but I have to say that getting a girlfriend through Snapchat is not going to work. But it’s fine with attention, Asley Hotland tells TV2.
