Paradise is a place that most of us just dream about, but it’s very much on one 30-year-olds mind these days. Josh Garcia is one of just ten finalists competing for a dream job to search for paradise and win a house as part of the prize.
The transplanted Californian now living in New York City is competing for his dream job to be an online TV host for a popular website. Following six months and hundreds of applications, Josh and nine others made the final cut. The winner will be selected in March and travel the world for a year in search of paradise.
“I left my job as an engineer to pursue my career in video and television,” said Garcia, who is currently making an income working as a personal trainer. “Let me win but if I cannot win let me be brave in the attempt.” Garcia moved to the Big Apple about two years ago to pursue his dreams of working as a TV host. The job will pay the winner of the contest $60,000 a year to travel the globe and report on beautiful locations, take in the best sights of each country and experience different cultures across the world
The winner will also receive a $150,000 to spend on a home in cash, which can also be used to rent property across the world.
