Dream job turns into nightmare It was advertised as the best job in the world. And it certainly looked good. You would be paid ($189,000 for six months) to surf, sail and swim. The job came with a beachside mansion, with its own swimming pool, and fantastic view of the ocean. All you had to do was look after tiny Hamilton Island, A_______.
Duties included feeding the fish, and writing a blog of your experiences to help encourage tourism in the area. There were more than 34,000 applicants for the job from all over the world, so Ben Southall was delighted B_______.
But as it turned out, it wasn’t quite the dream job that some people might have expected. Firstly, it was incredibly busy. Ben found himself working seven days a week and up to nineteen hours a day. C_______, with promotional events, press conferences, training courses and administrative duties. ‘It has been very busy, busier than most people would have imagined, and certainly busier than I had imagined.’ Mr Southall told reporters when he finished his contract.
In fact, during his six months, D_______, made forty seven video diaries, and gave more than 250 media interviews — including a chat with popular US TV host Oprah Winfrey. He also posted more than 75,000 words in sixty separate blogs, uploaded more than 2,000 photos, and ’tweeted’ more than 730 times.
That didn’t leave much time for surfing, sailing or simply relaxing and enjoying the sea views. And when he did get the chance to try out his water sport, things didn’t always go well. On one trip, Ben was stung by a deadly jellyfish. The Irukandji jellyfish are transparent and very small, E_______.
‘I was enjoying a post Christmas jetski session with some friends at a quiet beach on Hamilton Island and as I climbed off the back of the ski and onto the beach, felt a small bee like sting on my forearm.’ Mr Southall wrote on his blog.
Within thirty minutes, Ben was feeling the venom. He was hot and sweaty, with headaches and pains in the chest, and high blood pressure. Ben had to be rushed to a doctor who diagnosed the symptoms and gave him some medication. Luckily, Ben was fine, F_______. On the blog he wrote, ’This was not what I’d wanted at all — I’m supposed to be relaxing in my last few days on Hamilton Island’.
Ben was lucky to survive.
1. he had a busy schedule of events to attend

3. when he beat them all and won the contract
4. but it was an unwelcome end to his stay in paradise
5. situated off the coast of Queensland
