Seriously? I mean, I know you get less daylight up there in winter...but you've got electricity! I'd go with intellect being an important feature, but the look on that guy's face is a bit vacant. The American is a bit too slick looking for me, but still....wow.

Kyla said...

Poor, poor Norwegian ladies.

Aliki2006 said...

Oh my.

I don't have much more to say--it must be a sunlight thing, I agree.

Kathryn said...

Is this a joke? I mean, I'm sure the Norwegian bachelor is a fabulous guy, but, um, I'm at a loss. I happen to know a bunch of Norwegian fellas (college friends of my hubby actually) and any of them would be a much better match for the show.
I guess I'll just leave it at that.
The Bachelor is one of my "secret" shows I like to watch. I don't tell too many people about it, as I'm not too proud of it. I find it to be like watching a car crash in that ya just can't look away. I did miss the last episode of the hometown dates however. I wonder what happened.

Lisa said...

Wow. I guess there are less fights and crazy antics on Norway's version of the show. heehee.

theflyingmum said...

Well, uh...
OK, I bet he's...
Yeah, I got nothin'.

Gina said...

Is the Norwegian guy really rich?

Valarie said...

I'm sure he has a really great personality!

Kellan said...

Too funny! I vote American - yep - for sure! See ya.

Victoria said...

Shut. Up.

Um, is there seriously a contest for the Norwegian fellow? Eek.

onthegomom said...

You mean people actually try to win the Norwegian guy on a TV show?!? Seriously?!? Wow!

This is my first time to you blog, found via another... very funny and entertaining!

I'm not sure either of them look much chop. The American dude looks plastic, the Norwegian one looks dopey!

Jennifer (Jen on the Edge) said...

You are joking, aren't you?

Sue said...

The American guy looks like an idiot, but the Norwegian guy - oy. Just. No.

sandy shoes said...

LOL!

At least he's for sure not wasting any money on foofy golden highlights, or tanning salons.

Or anger management classes, by the look of things.

Shan said...

Oh that's unfortunate.

familymclean said...

hmmmm, Norwegian must be really rich or something....is this a joke?

Karen said...

I'm thinking that there are some differences in what Norwegians value and what Americans value. Is this a case where someone would say: He has a great personality!

I don't think the Norwegian is bad looking - he just isn't the model they've clearly chosen for the American version. He actually just looks normal: like the rest of us.

thirtysomething said...

Uh...well. Hmmm...yeah, I don;t know 'bout that one. Photoshop maybe? because , in my eye, neither look especially appealing. will be fun to see how it turns out!

Gina said...

I'm in the minority here but if I had to choose one I'd go with the Norwegian because he looks like a real man. I can imagine sailing, working in the garden, and taking long walks with him. The American looks like he spends way too much time in front of the mirror.

Who She She said...

I'm afraid I'm with Gina. The American looks like he'd be useful if you needed to know how to blow dry your teeth. The Norwegian looks like he'd willingly go into the dark, spidery basement to change a fuse for you. I vote for the Norwegian. That said, you can't judge a face my its... um, cover, or something.

Julie Pippert said...

Are you kidding? For real?

I mean, I don't go for Ken dolls at all...but the other guy...umm...

Mrs. G. said...

Am I the only one who thinks the Norwegian is cuter. Oh God, when did I push the bar down so low...it must have been that last trip to the gym in, let's see, 1967. Hey, he looks like he has a better personality.

MadMad said...

Really?! Maybe it's April Fool's Day in Norway? Seriously. You have some 'splainin' to do. I want to know more.

Family Adventure said...

Thanks, y'all: Sadly, this is no joke. I do not believe the Norwegian bachelor is particularly rich, although he does work in the music industry. The American one, however, appears to be rich.

I am fascinated by your comments on this, so I may have to blog some more on this topic. Bear with me... :)

I've seen the bimbos they put up for the American version. What do the women look like on the Norweigan one? It'd be interesting to see who they pick to compete for his attentions. I can't stand the barbie/ken competition they have here. Way to shake things up, Norway!

Karen MEG said...

I thought for sure that was a joke. The American is a bit slick for me - not my type (Ian's reading...)

painted maypole said...

i refuse to watch the bachelor on principal. and really.... how many bachelors who look like the AMERICAN bachelor need to go on TV to find a date? Norwegian looks far more realistic.

Hae Yung said...

You must be kidding?! You can't be serious that he is the best that Norweigan have to offer. I am assuming that he has a great personality! Or at least very, very, very rich. Maybe the bachelor in Norway is different, girls compete to NOT get him at the end. There must be a twist, something.

another good thing said...

hahahahahaha.
so funny.
wait a minute. He's super RICH, right?

Just Seeking said...

No way! is this for real? Oh my stars what a difference! The American guy, while gorgeous, doesn't even remotely look human!
I soooo agree with Gina!

My Ice Cream Diary said...

Hmmm, would you rather marry a Ken Doll or the grumpy old man next door? Couldn't the guy at least smile? And couldn't Ken Doll guy just let his eyebrows grow naturally?
