Brit scoops dream Great Barrier Reef blogging job

Filed as News on May 7, 2009 4:11 pm

Remember that cushy blogging job advertised a few months ago – a six-month, live-in contract to promote the Great Barrier Reef?

A lucky Brit has scooped the job, picked from thousands of applications and a shortlist of 16 finalists.

Ben Southall described himself as “the adventurous, crazy, energetic one” and “practically a fish”, winning over the four-person selection panel in a selection of challenges on Hamilton Island.

Tourism minister Peter Lawlor said that Ben had “excelled in showing a true passion for Queensland” and that he had the ability to grow and maintain a loyal following during the six months contract.

    it is very different articles.the remake bore little resemblance to the original, the one part which the modern pretenders made sure to include was a recreation of the famous Mini police chase scene
