'Australian Survivor': Shonee Scored Her Job In London Like Some Kind Of Rom-Com Character
While most mere mortals land gainful employment after seeing an ad online and handing over their CV -- 'Australian Survivor' star Shonee Fairfax took a more unusual route.
During some small-talk over rice with the Mokuta tribe, Lee asked the Season 3 favourite about her work in London, asking how she began her career as a personal assistant.
"I was just walking back to my house and saw a man with a Dalmatian," Shonee explained of the serendipitous moment.
"I was in an Uber, actually, so I got out of the car and ran over," adding that she "loves" the spotted breed of dog.
"They are exquisite beauties and when you see one you really do need to make the most of it," Shonnee said, matter-of-factly.
Like some kind of bizarro Cruella de Vil who loves Dalmatians not for their fur but their personalities, Shonee got chatting to the owner.
" I said, 'I've just moved here and I don't have a job. I'm free to walk the dog any time you need, here's my number'.
And just like that, Shonee landed a PA gig with a "really rich guy with two kids" who she does everything for and "it's the best".
It's a career move that her tribemate Nick Iadanza pointed out that only Shonee could have pulled off, using her very pure love of dogs to guide her through the world to opportunities.
"She is the funniest 'Survivor' that's ever played," he explained, adding that she's a "ripping good time" and the only person on earth who could get a job by patting a Dalmatian.
Shonee is the career coach -- and life coach -- that Australia needs right now and we are truly not worthy.
