FARGO - A Fargo man came in third in a reality-based competition show set in Norway.

"Alt for Norge" pits American contestants against each other in a series of challenges that celebrate Norwegian culture and history.


Justin Jorgenson of Fargo was eliminated in the show's final episode, leaving only two of 12 contestants to battle it out for the win. The episode aired earlier this month.

Jorgenson was competing in a driving obstacle challenge when he hit a moose and lost the challenge. He was one of the three contestants from the region, including Paul Haugen of Alexandria, Minn., and Dakota Gillespie of York, N.D., who were both eliminated earlier.

The show airs in Norway and is now seeking U.S. contestants for its third season.

The winner receives a cash prize of $50,000 and a reunion with long-lost Norwegian relatives.
