BJØRVIKA, OSLO (Dagbladet): Many remember Levi Dry (25) after winning from the TV 2 show “Sommerhytta” in 2020 together with his then-girlfriend Øyunn Krogh (28).
As a result of the show, there was naturally a lot of attention surrounding them, and when the relationship ended last year, it was widely discussed.
In the past year, however, there has been relative silence from the effort.
Dagbladet meets the “Sommerhytta” winner at a cafe in Bjørvika, Oslo – a short stroll from DNB, where he works as a concept developer.
– I never dreamed of being in the limelight, or being famous for the sake of being famous. So it must have happened because I was doing something I really loved, and I didn’t want to be associated with “so,” he explains.
While he wasn’t hunting for new Instagram followers and collaborations, he developed an interest in media production, and in 2022 started the podcast “Unauthorized Autobiography.”
– That’s what I really enjoyed and I was proud of the product. But now I’m not in management, and they’re also the people who produced the podcast, so season two hasn’t happened yet – but I really want to do it.
He wanted to avoid attention
After the breakup between the “Somerhita” couple, things have gone quiet from the 25-year-old. Aside from the fact that he understood that being in the influencer business wasn’t his choice, he says he chose to stay quiet because he wanted as little attention as possible around it.
– It’s very strange to go public and report a violation, it’s very personal.
– And when asked by journalists, he says that in many ways it is better not to answer than to sit down and form the right answer, and that’s why I went.
He takes a sip of the smoothie before continuing:
– I have been working a lot lately and I really enjoy it. Then I focused on having a good time and enjoying everyday life and just being myself.
– So, how are you?
– Yes! I’m fine now. He said I am enjoying and smiled.
Roper Cabin Modification
Trian, who ended up with the winning cabin from the TV2 project, told Talkblade last fall that he entered it for a limited time.
– I lived there for a while and liked it very much, he says now before continuing:
– But now I’ve actually sold the cabin. It feels weird, but it feels right.
The cabin was sold to raise equity capital for an apartment, and the venture is now looking for a new home in the capital. Acquisition of the cottage will take place this summer, and he plans to move into an apartment at approximately the same time.
– The usual thing is to buy a house before you get a room, and I realized that there is a better order to do things, he says with a smile.
On the other hand, Winnerhita disappears – fortunately – not completely out of his life.
– It was sold privately to someone I know, and I’m pretty sure I’d be allowed to use it if I wanted to.
– The biggest change
And if Try is to be believed, the cabin looks pretty much the same as it did on TV — except for a couple of things.
– I did everything on the walls myself, actually! Now I decorate the walls with my own decorations as I found out that I like to paint, she says.
He hasn’t quite put the renovation on the shelf — he’s proudly displaying a yacht he’s renovated himself.
– That was the biggest change I made there – I bought the boat and renovated it. But it was more work than I thought.
The cabin is about to be sold and an apartment must be bought – but other than that, Dry describes the coming summer as “a quiet summer, mostly in Norway”.
– I will work a bit, travel to Bergen a bit, maybe use the cabin a bit. It’s going to be a quiet summer, but I’m looking forward to it.
