On Sunday evening, it became known that Henrik Eijsink (26) could adorn himself with the title of this year’s Farmen winner after winning against Andrea Marie Rosli (24) in the decisive knowledge competition.
That same evening, as is tradition, a grand finale party was organized for the Farmen participants at the Mesh nightclub in the capital.
On the red carpet, among others, mayor Dan-Håvard Johnsen (56) and goat farmer Einar Lund (21) were seen together. The duo formed a close relationship through their stay on the farm in Stange.
New TV plans
When TV 2 had a chat with the companions, they revealed that the popularity around them has increased, and that they were going to Tromsø to entertain with a stand-up show.
Watch the duo share about future plans in the video at the top of the story.
At the same time, the best friends will also start a new TV project, which Johnsen refers to as “the mayor and the farmer face challenges in the north”.
The concept will mainly revolve around Lund getting out of his safe cave in Trysil, and getting out of his comfort zone through a series of challenges.
– It will be to get the trysling out of Trysil, where he will face a number of challenges. Einar is reasonably sure he can handle everything, and I’m pretty sure he won’t. And then it will be to give him a number of challenges that I know of in the area of Nord-Troms and Finnmark, and to test what he is made of, Johnsen tells TV 2.
– I keep the details to myself
The challenges can be, for example, swimming with killer whales and bungee jumping.
– There are unimaginable possibilities and some extreme things. We will test how tough he really is.
The mayor will act as a kind of supporter for Lund, and will be on the sidelines. However, there probably won’t be any challenges for the 56-year-old.
– I will only help to facilitate, give advice and pull him off the cliff. I’ll probably stay away for a bit. I think it will be quite extreme. I don’t think I dare, he says and laughs.

Johnsen further shares that the duo is still in the starting pit, but that they have been in contact with someone who can take care of both filming and editing.
– We will probably start recording sometime in the new year.
– Happy with challenges
When the Farmen comrades will appear on the screen, however, is unknown.
– We have quite a few people working on it, but we have to see where we can get it sent, or it will just be YouTube, says Johnsen, and continues:
– The production costs are quite high, but we have many people who are interested in being sponsors.
Lund, for his part, is looking forward to embarking on a new adventure with his partner.
Responds to the viewer criticism: – Adhered to the rules
– I am very open to everything. I am very happy with challenges and going out of my comfort zone, he says to TV 2.
