Bjorn Borg's wife Patricia Östfeldt-Borg withdrew from participating in the show prior to its launch,[7] and the final list of celebrities was described in Aftonbladet by one critic as unimpressive.[8] In terms of viewership the show was a flop, as whilst the first episode received viewership of 1.2 million, by the middle of the series viewership had already fallen to 322,000.[9] 62% of the readers of the newspaper Expressen voted the premiere of the show a "disaster".[10]
