The Best Job in the World
« on: May 04, 2009, 04:44:24 PM »
I think we've talked about this before, but it's pretty awesome...and the finalists are all on Youtube.  So here's a new thread:

Sixteen people from 15 countries set foot on Hamilton Island yesterday. They will be subjected to the final round of interviews for the "best job in the world" competition, with only one picking up the free digs and $150,000 salary for six months of absolute bliss.

Tourism Queensland's CEO, Anthony Hayes, is more than happy to sign a check for that amount. A good idea turned out to be amazing, and he's recouped much more than that already. Hayes says, "We think we've just tipped over $100 million in international publicity with hopefully another $20 to $30 million coming this week."

We're waiting for a winner now, and it won't take long. The cameras are rolling, and the candidates are ready for prime time.

Soon, we'll have an answer. The countdown is currently at 34 hours.

For now, meet the finalists here. As you may have guessed, I'm hoping Mirjam wins

Mirjam is this chick:

I would concur on her being the hottest female, but think that Magali and Cali are doable as well.

Ostrich boy wins:

Ben Southall, from Britain, Wins Best Job Competition Adventurous, crazy, energetic. Practically a fish. Bachelor of science degree. Keen interest in photography. Experience blogging his tours through Africa. Loves animals. Loved by animals. Which of these points from Ben Southall's 60 second video application landed him the sweetest job -- earning six figures to live in a 3-bedroom villa with a private pool and glorious view on Hamilton Island in the Great Barrier Reef? Or maybe it was just the pic of Ben riding an ostrich.

Go Britain!
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.
