Fredrik Eklund

Fredrik says goodbye to Season 2, and urges you to watch the boys' recap on 'WWHL.'

on Jul 31, 20130

I just watched the season finale and I'm lost for words. It was hurtful to film it but perhaps even more saddening to watch it. I need to collect my thoughts and express everything I want to say in tonight's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Please watch it.

Love you always
Fredrik

Imagine what you, Ryan and Luis could do if you would work with each other, ever thought about it?

Fredrick, you are one weird, funny, stylish business man, and I like it! Business is business, and personal is personal, just be careful, karma is a sneaky, underhanded individual who will come for you when you least expect it!! And for goodness sake don't become a wuss next season..that is not who you are!

Fredrik's IMDb page shows he made 9 pornos, yet he says he "did the porn for 1 week of my life."

 

His latest porn, Million Dollar Man, was made in 2012.

Did anyone else notice that it looked like Derek pretended to throw Fredrik's phone in the water? It sure looked like he had it behind his back as he walked away... Hmm weird

Sometimes you can be a "meany" but hey I still like you. You're hilarious and smart. Best wishes on your marriage!

Fredrik: Since you treated sooooo many brokers unkindly and unethically I am sure there are many more creative paybacks coming your way just like Ryan's. I hope so....makes for great TV and I love watching you squirm since you so enjoy hurting others.

I really enjoyed Fredrik's movie career and I think Ryan is jealous of Fredrik because he knows who the biggest 'man' in the room is and how we now that  ...........

Fredrik, Ryan did you a favor.  You should thank him.  He made you look in the mirror so you could see your inner person.   It was so great when you apolozied to Louis.  I did think you should have given him $ but for now, you have grown alot.  I love you, by the way.  You are the greatest and I love your sense of humor.....weeeeee

Fredrik, Luv u and Luv watching you. Move on from Ryan, he just doesn't matter. He needs to clean up his own act, before he starts on someone else. He is just jealous of you, you are better looking, a great businessman and very fun to watch. Can't wait to c you in the next season. Forget Ryan you don't need him. But am glad to c you and Luis friends, he's a great guy too!

OK, Now, I see your good side..I was too quick to judge you. Success is even more fulfilling if it was acquired with good conscience and you are now in a position to prove that to yourself at this point of your career. All the best in your marriage and your career!!

I think your husband is the best guy on the whole show! You are a lucky man. Ryan owes you an apology but you did provoke him. Thanks for the sharing your beautiful wedding and congrats! Xoxoxo

You will rise above this hurt, you did the right thing with Luis, enjoy your new life with Derek and Ryan is a sumbag as Luis said in the first episode this season.  Good luck to you and your husband, and I look forward to seeing you again next season. Keep up the high kicks!!

Fredrik, I really think you are very funny and very pleasant to watch.  Ryan is just scum. He makes me sick.  He is super jealous of you and cant stand that he can compete with you.  The best of luck to you and your partner.

Fredrik,

When you said that you didn't want to lose your "humanity" in the finale I almost lost it I laughed so hard. Don't you realize that you lost that a long time ago. Almost everything you did this season showcased your lack of humanity. I felt so sorry for Derek at the rehearsal dinner when you failed to realize that he wanted to be with you and you just wanted to be with your phone. You lied directly to Ryan about the Bowery apartments and smiled while doing it. You deliberately screwed Luis earlier in the season and again...you enjoyed it. You seem to lack a sense of morality. I just hope that Derek can help you regain your compassion and your humanity. I have no sympathy for you at all. You got exactly what you deserved. In fact, you got off rather easily. Ryan could have shown the real film. But he took the high road...something you need to learn how to do.

I love Fredrik! Sexy Swedish man! Whew!

So happy for your marriage and proud of you for apologizing to Luis.

Ryan is just jealous! 

You and Derek are the most beautiful men on tv and you are the reason I watch this show!

love you frederik! everyone has skeletons, maybe ryan's just isn't on film, but it doesn't make him any better than you. You don't have to do anything to get him back.  That's enough revenge, and remember karma is a b.tch! Last, just know that Ryan isn't even capable of having the love in his heart that you have, especially for someone else and that's a misery in itself. Oh and love Derek too!! :)

Fredrick, You took advantage of everyone.  You will do anything to make yourself look better, in your own eyes at least.  Hopefully marriage and the clients seeing what went on when they watched the show, will make you a better man.

Loved yours & Derek's wedding!  You can be such a pill at times, but when you cried, I felt bad for you.  Give Derek a huge hug!

Fredrik,

 

You & I share a cultural heritage. I know first hand how emotionally challenged most Nordic folks tend to be.  I know that's a seemingly large, derogatory statement to make, but it's my experience. While I acknowledge that you're a  talented broker who thinks out of the box, it MUST be said that your success is at the cost of staining your hands with the blood of many others. You clearly take great joy in humiliating people, not just Ryan.  We saw you pull several NASTY numbers on Luis as well. Who knows how many were hurt OFF camera.  This is an extremely unattractive quality of yours.  I have achieved great success in my industry of 20+ years without stepping on anyone, but rather mentoring my underlings/staff and HELPING my competition.  There is enough business out there for everyone to be successful.

 

You are EXTREMELY lucky to have found Derek.  He clearly has a great head on his shoulders, a HUGE heart and is a wonderfully talented artist.  He reminds me of some of my friends.  I sincerely hope you don't blow it with him by continuing to be so greedy and so deeply in  love with the almighty dollar.   He is the best thing about you, by far!

 

The fact is that you owe Ryan 1) a HUGE apology, and 2) a great big THANK YOU for him teaching you (in a relatively painless manner) some humility.  By your own words, as a result of Ryan's actions, he made you realize you owed Luis an apology.  You would NEVER have apologized without having 'felt' some of that emotion.  I also suspect Derek's talking to you & guiding you led you to see this correlation, & how you owed Luis this apology.  Too bad you couldn't be a big enough man and apologize to Ryan, the man whose humiliation you have clearly celebrated.

 

While I would never wish anyone ill will, not even you, I TRULY hope you will wake up and realize that a man is not judged by how big his wallet is, but by how big his heart is to ALL of his fellow man.  Time for you to MAN UP.

 

Next season, I hope to see a bit of humility & contrition on your part. BTW, I thought you were as phony as a $3 dollar bill on WWHL.  You kept looking back to Derek for his approval and crying when you thought the audience might be 'siding' with Ryan. Ryan is far from perfect, but at least he doesn't TRY to hurt others.  He doesn't delight (like you do) in causing people to squirm, (except for his 'lesson", his gift to you...) THAT he did enjoy, and so did most of us!

Fredrick, you need to watch the episode again where you are ringing your hands together, marveling at how clever you are to lie to Ryan; while you are desparately calling other brokers to try to sell those condos.  Okay, so maybe its okay to pretend they are still a hot property, but you were a d!$% to Ryan, then try to whine and garner pity on WWHL.  Maybe Andy bought it....but I certainly did not.

I truly hope you do some self reflection before doing another season! You and Ryan both treated each other like crap! I hope Derek teaches you to be a more open and honest person in your dealings with other people! You can be successful as a person and still be honest!

Never apologize for your tears...it takes courage to cry....men in our society rarely learn that.  You have my admiration for having the courage to show your heart and humanity.  Your sincerity was very apparent on" Watch What Happens."  Clearing the air with Luis showed a lot of character.  You have a loving marriage and the love you share with your family has made you very strong.  Be happy.  You deserve it!

Fredrik, I love your energy and your personality. What Ryan did to you was so petty and childish - there is really no excuse for humiliating you in front of your peers or for using so much profanity when talking to you and about you. He is obviously an intensely vindictive, jealous, and hateful person. Life is too short to deal with people like Ryan. There's no repairing that relationship because that is just his personality and that explains why he was/is alone. I went from feeling really sorry for him that he was all alone during Hurricane Sandy to realizing that he treats people like trash and that's why he's alone. I wish I could give you a hug, I felt so bad for you after I saw your reactions on both WWHL and the finale's interviews. Congratulations on your marriage and love that smile. Best wishes and lots of love.

This season we witnessed a bit of the real shark that you really are and I believe you’re actually a very shrewd wolf in sheep’s clothing. You didn’t get to be the No. 1 broker in New York by being a nice guy.  You were deceitful and unfair to both Luis and Ryan. You play a victim as you victimize. I’m hope Ryan making you sweat a bit has brought you down a notch. And what’s with those big phony crocodile tears on WWHL?  Ryan’s no saint either but at least he doesn’t annoy with weird faces, shrills and stupid kicks.

 

Anyhow, you’re very fortunate to have found your love and I truly wish you well in your marriage as Derek appears to be a real gem.

First off, congratulations to you and Derek.  Hope you two have many wonderful years together.  Secondly, I am glad you apologized to Luis.  It certainly was not right what you did and I am glad you acknowledged it.  Thirdly, my heart went out to you because of what Ryan did.  That was certainly uncalled for. His actions shows what kind of person he is.  Just don't stoop to his level because you are smarter than that.  He will combust all by himself.

frederik - you are an inspiration to watch..and i am not even a real estate agent. it's no wonder that you are number one in nyc. smart and hard-working. love watching you ...and now, your unbelievably WONDERFUL husband, derek. wanted to say that i used to find you an annoying fart. but you know what, you deserve to be a little cocky now and then - you deliver, dude! it's great to watch you go about your business. you DO have humanity - without it, you would never have even considered apologizing to luis. you must be a sweetheart, because derek would not have accepted a douche bag for a husband. i am loving you on the show. don't sweat the jabs and digs from ryan serhant. he is hideous in his envy. hopefully he will find some happiness in his life and settle down. now that you have been given some amazing gifts from life, feed the circle of karma, and be generous with the others. you are cool, smart, and a nice guy. stay focussed on what's right and what's ahead. see you next season.

I felt for Ryan on the Hurricane Sandy episode.  He showed a human side.  He lost me at the final and sealed the deal on WWHL.  He wasn't even a bit contrite.  Love Frederik.

You are an amazing person inside and out. Congratulations and good luck to you and your new family. While I understand you and Ryan have your differences the two of you are what make this my favorite Bravo show. Have a fabulous break - please come back next season. :}

I do truly believe, that somewhere underneath that ruthless, manipulative business exterior of yours, lies a really good man. So please, cut the pity party act and accept responsibility for your own bad behavior. It was kind of embarrassing watching you on the finale and on WWHL last night. The pouty lips, the doe eyes, the tears; give me a huge break. Your apology to Luis was so insincere; it never would have happened if you considered him even half the threat that you do Ryan. He deserves a real apology from you. And Ryan is a jerk, but really no jerkier than yourself. I'm not sure how the two of you can watch these episodes and not be horrified at how you both behave. Do you really believe that you can continue to treat people so horribly and not expect to eventually be called out for it? You needed to be knocked down a peg or two; maybe it wasn't done in exactly the way it should have been, but it needed to happen none the less. Karma can be a real bitch, baby. The image of a ruthless, heartless business man is not pretty. I don't care how much money it nets you. At the end of the day, you have to live with the person behind that image. I know that you're a better person than the one you portray. It would be nice to see more of that person. I'm about fed up to my bangs with the meanness and lack of integrity that pervades this show.

You had it coming.  Watching your ego and manipulative ways all season made it hard to feel sorry for you!

 @louis1111 

You nailed it @louis. Fredrik purposely sold the highest priced 1 bedroom to Ryan's client and anyone who doubts that, needs to watch that episode again. Fredrik is not a nice person, most of the time, and Ryan was simply the one to point that out to him. I lmao at the episode where Ryan did the kick and went on the double date. But I laughed at Ryan's expressions and comments...not Fredrik's actions. 

debmerc888

Wow this is harsh.  Fredrik actually has a very big heart, and anyone  would be lucky to be with HIM. He's not perfect, but he never hit below the belt like Ryan did.  He's a success because he's brilliant and hard working.I disagree that he was phony on WWHL.  Those were his true feelings, he's obviously a sensitive guy who was hurt.  Have you seen him with his parents?  He is full of love and respect for them. He was raised by loving people, and he is a loving person too.

Great comment!! Those aligator tears didn't fool me either. I just can NOT take Fredrik seriously when he tries to be all sad. He is laughing all the way to the bank, at the expense of others.

 Fredrik got a taste of his own medicine - how could you feel sorry for a guy who takes glee in screwing people over? He really revels in making people squirm; it's masochistic.

 Interesting that, on the show, Luis referred to Fredrick, to his face, as a sleeze bag, then is kissing his tushy on WWHL.

 BS! Fredrik is a weird, weird man and I personally can't believe that he's as successful as he is. Who in their right mind would buy from him? He obviously has no ethics. Derek seems to be a wonderful man - he could do much better than Fredrik.
