A major cable network is looking for a host with a science background, who loves adventure and travel, is athletic, great on camera and passionate about the world around them. We are open to all ethnicities.

The ideal candidate must be someone who can absorb academic information, quickly synthesize it, and be able to communicate the science back to an audience in a simple and compelling manner. This series is a bit documentary style and a bit scripted.

If you are a man between the ages of 35 and 42 and are interested please include a picture and a resume with your response.

Right, a man. But of any ethnicity. How....generous.

I'm actually qualified for this job in all respects except for two. The penis thing, and the fact that I wouldn't want to be on TV.

Honestly, BITE ME major cable network.
