I really did intend to throw my name into the hat, but one thing led to another and it never happened. So now I’ll just have to follow this story from afar.
“(CNN) — Sixteen applicants arrived in Hamilton Island on Sunday for the final interviews to pick a caretaker for the tropical paradise in Queensland, Australia.
A television presenter from New Zealand and a charity fundraiser from England were among the finalists for the position, dubbed the “best job in the world.” They were picked from a pool of more than 34,000 applicants from across the world.
The six-month caretaker will be paid $100,000 and is required to feed the fish, clean the pool and send weekly blog and video reports on what is happening on the island.”
