Briton: You're hired!
Back in late March, we compared the best and worst jobs in the world, but the schadenfreude did not last long.
Charity worker Ben Southall from Petersfield, Hampshire, beat 34,999 candidates to win the dream role as "island caretaker" on an island in the Great Barrier Reef from July 1 this year.
The 34 year old was voted into the top 50 a few months ago, and entered the final 16 to represent Britain. He will be feeding tropical fish 12 hours a month, and cleaning the pool at his three bedroom beach home with his Canadian girlfriend. Hey, life's tough.
Besides swimming and blogging occasionally, Ben will be paid £75k for his efforts. Certainly beats being Sir Alan's Apprentice.
Alrighty. Let's all be happy for Ben, as he packs his bags and heads to the sunny islands. At least our local gyms with the heated indoor swimming pools don't have any sharks or deadly shellfish.
