Pawn-Erik is angry at TV4 and plead for response from host Linda Lindorff.
He regrets his participation in the program and saw the output.
– best is if you put down the program, ” says Erik Bäckman.
the Farmer Erik Bäckman, 21, in TV4-program "Farmer seeks wife" regret their participation in the program. The reason is how TV4 decided to create his night together with the farmer Sigrid Bergåkra – and the fact that the host Linda Lindorff will return with questions to him on the night.
