When it comes to job titles, few can match the instant awesome of "celebrity chief shark officer."
In celebration of this summer’s 24th annual Shark Week, The Discovery Channel sent out a release looking for its first-ever CCSO, or celebrity chief shark officer. “Must enjoy exotic, waterfront locations, buff bodies in bathing suits and having the bejesus scared out of you,” reads an ad released by the television channel on Jan. 11. “Looking delicious in a wetsuit is a plus. Sense of humor required.”
The salary includes "chump change" with the benefits listed as "Lots and lots of insurance and some great dentistry, naturally." Ha!
But seriously, this looks like a great opportunity for some star with the right personality and just-a-bit-crazy 'tude to rock out on TV. Besides being featured during Shark Week, they'll also get to swim with the behemoths — as well as rub shoulders with other famous and well-connected folks at premiere parties in Los Angeles, New York City and Miami.
Those who are interested should "forward resumes, audition tapes and blood type to Discovery Channel c/o Elizabeth Hillman."
Good luck — and please, be careful.
