Jamie Grainger is both a beekeeper and a bit of a daredevil. The New Zealander was dared by his fellow beekeeper to sit on an angry beehive. If he could sit there for 30 seconds, he'd win $715.
His motivation? Grainger's co-worker tried before him - and only made it 19 seconds. Grainger, however, made it the whole 30. "It wasn't pleasant, but it was certainly amusing," he explains. "As you can imagine your a** swells up." Grainger is taking the cash, which he calls the "easiest money" he ever made, and putting it toward his wedding.
For what it's worth, his soon-to-be bride Lauren also thought the stunt was funny. Those two really have a future...check out the not safe for work video of the fun to the right.
- ONE MORE THING! Don't go calling animal cruelty here. "Naturally when bees sting you they die. But it's near the end of the season and a lot die off anyway," Jamie adds. "There is no harm in what we do - we care about the bees and the job is important to us."
