Minnesotans don't usually have a fighting chance to get cast in reality shows -- with one exception: The most popular one in the country.

It's just not this country. "Alt for Norge," Norway's top reality series, loves casting Midwesterners for its program that's a lot like "The Amazing Race," with Norwegian-Americans competing in challenges for cash prizes and a chance to meet relatives they didn't know existed.

Last season, three of the 12 contestants were from the Twin Cities and one-third of those who were callback finalists came out of the Minnesota open call.

Now comes the chance to audition for season five. There will be an open casting call at the Executive Center at Mall of America from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sautrday, Dec. 21. Anyone can aply as long as you are an American with Norwegian ancestry (even a little bit counts) You must also be over 18 and have never traveled to Norway.

You can get on the VIP list by emailing castingnorway@gmail.com. You can also apply online at oconnorcasting.tv/index.php/norway/.
