If your dream job in this gig economy consists of gnawing meat off the bone for a couple of weeks, you may be just the person Reynolds Wrap is looking for. Per CNN, the aluminum foil and plastic wrap brand is seeking someone to travel across the US for two weeks eating ribs, and it's offering $5,000 per week to do so. The person chosen will not only be sampling the wares, but also sharing grilling techniques, tips, and pics on the company's social media and website. In addition to the $10,000 stipend, the rib-eater will also have travel and lodging paid for, and will get to bring one other person to chow down with. Interested applicants need to send a photo grilling up a favorite dish, as well as 100 words on why this job would be a perfect fit. This release has the details. (More contest stories.)
