Has previously said no
In Björn Ferry’s autobiography “Ferry Tales”, he wrote that he and his wife Heidi Andersson previously been asked to participate in “Eternal Glory” but then declined. Now they have thus changed. The reason is that they may participate together.

To compete against their partner thinks she will not be any problems.
– We are racing people both, but usually do not have trouble for that. I like to compete both against and with Björn. If we get to be in the same team during a team competition, we become a cruel team, she says.
“Do not think it will go so well”
But she is not very confident profit.
– I am so incredibly branch specific, I’m really armwrestler, so I do not have as high expectations of myself. I do not think it will go so amazingly good.
What events are you most nervous about?
– I have real bogey when it comes to great heights and hope. I can climb as long as I get hold of anything, but I have to jump … damn. It would be fatal panic. Since I am not so fond of numbers.
