Do you have Swedish ancestry?

I wish I were part Swedish!  If you have any Swedish ancestry at all, you could be picked to participate in a new Swedish reality television series, The Great Swedish Adventure.  Meter Television, the producers of the Swedish versions of American Idol and Minute to Win It, are casting throughout the U.S.  They are looking for "fun, outgoing" people with even a drop of Swedish ancestry.  Chosen participants will travel to Sweden and compete in cultural challenges while they learn about their heritage.  The winner of the grand prize gets to meet his Swedish relatives.  Meter will pay for travel and housing during the filming of the series.

An online application form is on the home page of the series' Web site.  I didn't see a deadline, but I would guess that the sooner you send your name in, the better.  A short news item about the series can be found at The Local, an English-language Swedish news site.
