Tonje Frigstad (22) and Lasse Matberg (37) presenters for “Good Luck Guys”, which will challenge Norwegian celebrities in Thailand.
Amazon Prime Video has announced several new Norwegian productions, among them the “Good Luck Guys” reality series.
The press release for the concept, which is originally French, said the series follows “six influential couples who embark on an adventure in rural Thailand, searching for happiness and wealth, driven by a burning desire to discover their inner hero.”
Participants include designer Erlind Elias, reality personality Bettina Buchanan, pop artist Riley, influencer Jenny Hughes, social media personality Katherine Bran, model Nora Emily Naken, and artist Benjamin Strand.
Tonje hopes for more
Presenters Tonje Frigstad and Lasse Matberg, both well-known “Farmen” and “Farmen celebrity” hosts, will lead the gang – and test it in physical and mental strength. And it is, of course, a competition, in which in the end there are only two winning pairs left.
“I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to co-host this great concept with Lasse,” Frigstad writes in a text message to VG.
The series has already been recorded.
– We had a lot of fun as we followed the participants through their pathology journey. It has also been incredibly educational considering that a career in program management is something I can imagine continuing. You just have to be happy, because this will be real showpromises 22 years.
Frigstad was recently seen in “Forræder” on TV 2, and Matberg in “Skal vi danse: all stars” on the same channel.
Their new show will premiere on January 20th.

We strive to provide Prime Video customers with a wide range of content across global Amazon Original series and movies, the latest movie releases, and now, locally produced and earned content, which demonstrates our investment in Norway, he says.
