Top Hooker is about Fishing...
My son, Chris, was one of the 10 people chosen to compete on the Animal Planets new reality TV fishing show... "Top Hooker"...
The first show will air on Sunday, June 2nd.

Chris is the guy saying: "I'm going to be Americas first Top Hooker."

According to the Animal Planet website: The 10-week show "is an in-your-face, full-throttle
competition series that pits 10 expert fishermen against one another in a series of wild,
never-before-seen fishing challenges."
Guess which one is Chris.

I saw that advertise on TV yesterday.
Guilt is concerned with the past. Worry is concerned about the future. Contentment enjoys the present.

Good one...
We saw the first show and it was a lot better than I was expecting.
He won't tell us anything because of a no disclose contract he had to sign.
What you see is what you get... I have no idea where he got his weird sense of humor....

Top Hooker 2 year update... Chris came in 2nd place in the competition. :( , so no $30,000 or a $50,000 truck. :(.

Last day, last challenge... Chris was about 40 pounds total weight ahead, when a shark came around and started eating the fish they were trying to get into the boat... The other guy accidentally hooked the shark and was able to land it. That put him ahead in total weight with not enough time for Chris to overcome the difference. :(

The good news is... Chris had fun, met some wonderful people, made lots of contacts in the fishing and TV industry.

Last year Chris was ask to captain one of the boats during the filming of the 2015 Survivor show in Cambodia. That lead to a job in South Africa, and now he is "someplace in the South Pacific" working with another film crew. I think all they do is go fishing and surfing.

One of the factors that got him into this job were the skills he acquired in the Boy Scouts. The crew he's working with now, scout locations for filming. The lady who recommended him said: We need people on our crew who can take a boat to some deserted beach, set up shelters, start a fire, cook, and camp out. Someone who feels at ease in the outdoors and has the skills necessary to take care of themselves and the other members of their crew.
All those skills learned by every Boy Scout. LOL... Being an Eagle Scout is a big plus too.
