Tonje Frigstad was banished – made a bet

cReality profile Tonje Frigstad (22) has become a hot name among the Traitor gang. Last game round, she was moved to tears, when she learned that several of the participants intended to vote for her.

Therefore, she was mentally prepared that it could be her turn to leave the game on Friday.

– It did not come as a surprise. I had a little hope towards the end, if Cengiz managed to get Chris out, because then I think we would have managed to get a traitor out, she says to TV 2.

The name of presenter and YouTuber Christopher Robin Omdahl (31) was also mentioned among the participants.

Although several people voted for Omdahl, in the end it was Frigstad who was banished, and had to leave the game.

Pointed out early

Frigstad is unsure why so many turned their eyes on her. She herself tried to lie low in the terrain.

– I didn’t do as well as I thought. People tend to look at me, especially if I say something, she believes.

Already in the first council chamber, she was the one who pointed directly at one of the participants, YouTuber Sander “Randulle” Dale (24). The people of Frigstad think that they are aware of that.

– I think it already started at the first council chamber, where I pick out names. People open their eyes and think: “Oh, shit! Maybe it’s Tonje”.

Violent argument

In Friday’s episode, it became clear that the instigator to obtain a majority vote against Frigstad was precisely Dale. The 22-year-old believes Dale, together with YouTuber and comedian Jonas Lihaug (33) and Omdahl managed to recruit the majority.

In the episode, it became clear that the atmosphere between Dale and Frigstad was sour. The argument, however, was more violent than what was shown on TV.

– I think we have been cut very nicely. We argue fiercely. I really wish they had included more of the argument, because then people get a greater insight into what it was really like, says Frigstad when TV 2 calls her.

– It’s rare that I argue, but at that point I’m so mad and irritated with Sander, because no matter what I say, he’s so locked in on the idea that I’m a traitor. I think, “You have to open your eyes. How stupid he is.” He also fires back at me.

Dale says to TV 2 that he experienced the argument as more intense than what was shown on TV.

– I experienced it as significantly hotter, when I think back on it. It was really kind-hearted on my part, he says, and adds:

– What is not shown well enough is how long we drove around in the car on the way to the jumping tower. There we laid out a strategy, where everything worked out. Everything we predicted happened. I owe a lot to Jonas. He has started messing with my head.

Bet

The heated argument results in a sensational bet.

– I say to him: “If you’re so sure that I’m smoking, are you so sure that you’re going home?” Then we enter into a bet. If I am voted out, and say that I am loyal, then he will go home, she reveals.

According to Frigstad, Dale turns to the camera crew and says: “I’m Norway’s biggest idiot if I’m wrong”, after which Frigstad follows up and says: “Congratulations”.

Dale confirms that the bet took place.

– We held each other’s hands on it. I said: “Good idea, because I know you’re a traitor”, says Dale.

As Frigstad proved to be loyal, he lost the bet. Because the production refused him to leave the recording, he stayed.

– It quickly becomes a bit difficult to go home when the production wants a dramaturgy in the programme.

He says that Arman Surizehi (30) witnessed the bet.

– After Tonje smoked, Arman said to me: “Are you going to leave?”. I asked Mads if I could go. From the production he got no. I felt like I was in prison for my sins, says Dale.

Press manager at TV 2, Jan-Petter Dahl refers to the Traitor rulebook, about why Dale could not leave the game.

– There it appears that there are two ways for the participants to leave the game – either by being banished by the loyal, or eliminated by the traitors, he says.

– Left on the day

Frigstad believes Dale would have completed the bet, if he had been given the opportunity.

– I actually think he had done it. He is an incredibly nice guy. After all, he refused to be a traitor. We are arguing, but he is concerned with a good atmosphere. We are good friends now, and laugh about it, she says.

– Would you have gone, if you were allowed?

– I had gone on the day, Dale exclaims.

Unpleasant

When the participants had to present their ballots, a total of seven people had written her name. She thinks she was singled out right from the start.

– I’m only unlucky with the group I come in with. Then Kristin and Hina leave early, the two who sit on opposite sides of me. Then I will be completely alone, and incredibly naked. It becomes very clear when I speak, so people see me well.

“Alone” around the round table, she felt an all against one pressure.

– Sitting there and feeling everyone against you, it’s uncomfortable. Today went well, because I was prepared for it. Yesterday I was kicked out, and it came as a shock. I thought that now I will work as hard as I can to change their minds. Once people have made up their minds, it is difficult to stand up to a whole group. Especially when you have no one to lean on, says Frigstad.

Impressed

Also in the council chamber, Dale was firm in his opinion that Frigstad must be a traitor. He is upset with the southern girl, and lies flat.

– I see myself as a stubborn, little devil, who shits himself vertically. I have to stand for that. In retrospect, one should perhaps have seen that Tonje barks back again, and that both are therefore looking for the same thing. You are embarrassed to see it in retrospect, but you have to take responsibility for what you have done, he says, and is impressed by how she coped with the pressure in the council chamber.

– Tonje handles it very well. I am impressed.

With a barking Dale from one side, it meant extra when dancer and actor Cengiz Al (26) raised his voice.

– I think it’s fun to see people expressing their opinion. Therefore, I bow in the dust for the performance of Cengiz today. I don’t know where it came from, but I give it all the money it deserves. I think it was pretty cool, and it was kind of cool that he took some of the focus over to someone else.

Frigstad himself voted for Omdahl. When TV 2 asks who she thinks are traitors, the list quickly becomes long. When presenter Mads Hansen (38) was finally able to reveal the traitors to Frigstad, she was shocked.

See how Tonje Frigstad reacted when she learned the truth from presenter Mads Hansen in the video below.

Takes lessons with you

Even though it was difficult to feel the all-against-one pressure, Frigstad takes with him valuable lessons from Forræder.

– I think it was a bit nice to feel that feeling too. What it’s like to stand alone against such a large group of people. It is a feeling I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I think it’s a bit healthy to feel, she says.

She sympathizes with everyone who has been in the same situation, in one way or another.

– It feels incredibly uncomfortable, and many who experience this in reality may also find it unfair. They haven’t done anything to deserve it, but it just happens. I am moved by talking about it, but it feels absolutely terrible, she says.
