Winner gets access to the world’s top celebrities, entry to star-studded red carpet events, and a $100,000 salary! Five finalists ultimately competed on a live show on Aug. 8, where fans selected The Ultimate TJ.

I think that this is great. It is about time that it went here. Everyone else, is. I would not be very good at the job but, I would love to have the money and the perks.
