Well, it's official! These seven people have the best jobs in the world. They won Australia's "Best Jobs in the World" contest, where they were looking for everything from a wildlife caretaker to a chief funster.
Each of the jobs takes place in a different state or territory of Australia and involves a six-month contract with a salary package of A$100,000 (US$92,000) including all accommodations, food and expenses.
Their initial application involved a 30-second video and a test of their ability to generate buzz. (Watch the winning videos.)
Then, they headed to Australia for a one-week test — call it the Olympics of tourism. The events included — no, not balance beam and uneven parallel bars — reviewing Perth's best restaurants, attending VIP parties and festivals in Sydney and feeding the kangaroos on Kangaroo Island.
