I guess it’s not the best job after all.


It won all the awards. And rightfully so – it was a great idea. Queensland, Australia held a worldwide contest for someone to get a fat salary to live on a beautiful island and blog about how great Queensland was.

Guess it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.

Ben Southall, the British winner of the contest was stung by a potentially deadly jellyfish while swimming in the waters off the island. “I was enjoying a post Christmas jet ski session with some friends at a quiet beach on Hamilton Island,” he wrote on his blog.


Apparently after some painful nights, it turns out he was ok. But if they hold this promotion again, I wonder how many people will think twice about entering this time?
