Anyone planning to watch "Pirate Master"? It's a new reality TV show on CBS where cameras follow 16 people as they live on a pirate ship and search the Caribbean for clues to find $1 million. I didn't even know the show existed until my online search for news brought me to the homepage of one contestant, linkurl:John Lakness;http://www.cbs.com/primetime/pirate_master/bios/john.shtml -- whose occupation is listed as "scientist/Chippendale dancer." Relax, ladies -- he's not a biologist. His bio says he studied physics and electrical engineering, and received his bachelor's degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. "A scientist by day, John is a Chippendale Dancer by night." If you're still interested, his hobbies include weight training and "learning new, amazing things. " It's hard to believe someone like this exists -- almost worth tuning in for. Know anyone else with such an interesting professional profile?
