Reynolds Wrap Will Pay Someone $10,000 to Eat Ribs Across the Country
What would you do if you were paid to eat barbecue ribs? Would it be your dream job? Reynolds Wrap recently posted a job offer to pay someone $10,000 to travel across the United States in search of the tastiest ribs in the country. We hate to burst your bubble, but unfortunately, you can no longer apply for the job. But what’s going to happen on the job? Most importantly, how are people reacting to the news?
Eat More Ribs
The job posting was very simple: Reynolds Wrap needed someone who loves ribs and wouldn’t mind traveling across the country to eat as many ribs as possible. This individual would have to determine which is the best barbecue in the country. The posting explained, “If you don’t mind being paid to taste some of the most delicious BBQ ribs across the country, posting envy-inducing pictures of your food and falling asleep every night dreaming about your next rack of ribs, then you could have what it takes to be the next Reynolds Wrap Chief Grilling Officer [CGO].”
In August 2019, this lucky employee will spend two weeks traveling across the country. While on his/her travel, the CGO will be in charge of posting enticing photos on Reynolds Wrap’s social media profiles, as well as sharing grilling techniques and other multimedia promotions on the company’s website and social media. So, it looks like the CGO will have more job responsibilities than just eating. They’ll be a social media influencer for barbecue ribs.
More About The Position
This might be one of the best jobs someone could ever have. The position includes prepaid travel arrangements and lodging for you and a guest. So, you don’t have to travel across the country by yourself. You can bring someone along with you, but they might have to pay for their own barbecue ribs. Reynolds Wrap didn’t specify which barbecue restaurants the CGO will visit, but the employee will travel to popular barbecue cities, including Louisville, Kentucky; Chicago, Illinois; Austin, Texas; St. Louis, Missouri; Charleston, South Carolina; and, Memphis, Tennessee. Wouldn’t you have loved to have been selected for this position?
Social Media Buzz
It didn’t take long for people to talk about the unusual, yet perfect, job opening. Many Twitter users were excited, sharing pictures of Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games when she announces, “I volunteer as tribute.” One user (@EWil4) said, “I’m about to give veganism the boot.” That might be a little too drastic, but we understand what he means.
Other users say they have enough prior experience to be perfect for the job. Other users were recommending their friends for the position, knowing they love ribs and would find it an enjoyable experience to travel across the country eating as many ribs as possible. One user (@adornthesky) shared a picture of her signature barbecue ribs and waffle [a fun variation of chicken and waffles], commenting, “I would die if you made me the 2019 Chief Grilling Officer! Make my dreams come true.”
Another user (@jake_roberson) posted a picture of him grilling ribs and hamburgers. He said, “If you believe that laughter and good food help knit stronger, deeper souls for our communities, then vote for this guy to serve as @ReynoldWrap’s Chief Grilling Officer for the first two weeks of August 2019 and together we will stitch America back together one rib at a time.” Do you think ribs are the face of the future? Can ribs solve all of our problems? Hopefully, whoever accepted this job position was up for the task to eat as many ribs as possible, take fun pictures along the way, and inspire people to eat more ribs. You can never have too many ribs.
