British student wins water-slide testing “best job in world”

A British student named Sebastian Smith has landed himself “the best job in the world” after winning a competition run by holiday company First Choice.

The job, to test water slides around the world, will pay Smith, a 22-year old Leeds University student, to travel to First Choice’s SplashWorld resorts and test its many chutes and slides, rating them on factors such as “biggest splash” and “adrenaline factor”. Smith triumphed over more than 2,000 fellow applicants, clinching the prize at the glamorous Iberotel Makadi Saraya Splash Resort in Egypt, a five-star waterpark resort, where each of the finalists were judged on a number of challenges. Smith’s job will last for six months, and include flights to Jamaica, Turkey Faliraki and more, all with a £20,000 pay cheque. The competition is one of a growing number of promotional campaigns by tour companies and tourism authorities, to promote their offerings. Australia’s tourism authority, Tourism Australia, is currently holding its “best job in the world” competition for the second time, and has recently announced its shortlist of finalists from almost 350,000 applicants who entered the competition via Facebook. China’s Hangzhou region also recently launched a competition, offering the winner the chance to be a “modern Marco Polo” and document their exploration of the region. These campaigns certainly achieve their goal of creating a buzz around a brand, while one lucky winner’s life is changed by the chance to experience these fantastic roles and get paid for the privilege.
