Ken’s job is just Beach… now yours could be too
1st August 2023 – 31st August 2023
From Barbie’s Malibu Beach to Beach in the Maldives!
We are now hiring for the role of Beach, to give one lucky fan who has had Kenough of the Real World the chance to spend 10 nights living Ken’s job of the last 60 years. The first role of its kind outside Barbie Land is now open for applications below.
The lucky winner will be flown out to our breathtaking Coco Bodu Hithi resort, where they will take up the role of Beach for 10 days out from reality, while the Real World Kentinues on without them. With the island boasting beautiful shorelines the entire way around, the winner can quite literally Beach on whatever side of the beach they want to Beach on.
Like all job applications, prospective candidates must meet the below criteria:
• Ability to stand proudly in the sand
• Spend endless hours staring out over the Indian Ocean
• Keep track of the morning waves
• Empty their head of all thoughts
• Have their rollerblades with them at all times (though good luck using them on the sandy beaches of the island…)
• Be comfortable performing a moody solo musical number and/or group dance sequence
• Proficient at guitar
• Know the words to “Push” by Matchbox Twenty by heart
• Have at least two pairs of sunglasses at all times
• Hold and lean on a surfboard
• Have 60 years’ experience as Beach (preferred but not essential)
The role excludes:
• Any Real World stress or actual work
• Lifeguard responsibilities
• Surfing dangerous waves
• Any of the sort of spirituality that comes with surfing
• Horses… or the patriarchy
• Medical training
• Beach-offs (strictly due to health & safety reasons)
• Your own Dream Beach House – or shall we say Mojo Dojo Casa House – located conveniently on a beach
• Guaranteed tan (perfect hair at Beach’s discretion)
• No official uniform but access to a wardrobe of stylish accessories
• No actual responsibilities
• Perfect weather, all the time
• Unlimited time to socialise
• 10 nights stay at Coco Bodu Hithi for Beach plus a partner or Allan of their choosing
• Return economy flights from UK to Malé & resort transfers
• Full board meal plan at a select resort restaurant
• One massage each at the Coco Spa (as Beach is tiring work)
