Two adventurous young men explore unusual occupations in 72 Extreme Jobs.
A MULTICULTURAL country like Malaysia naturally has much to offer in terms of extraordinary and bizarre occupations as the two hosts of 72 Extreme Jobs discovered.
Taking up the challenge are Juztin Lau Kah Fai and Joe Chang Yew Joe, two young men who have much in common. Both love to sing and are alumni of Astro Star Quest, a Chinese singing competition on Astro Wah Lai Toi. Lau came in second in 2009, while Chang was placed fourth in 2010.
Both are 21 and naturally very excited to take on 13 different extreme occupations in the first season of the series. Both also hail from Ipoh, so hosting in Cantonese is second nature to them.
Yet, the similarity ends here. Chang is an only child and leans heavily towards outdoor activities while Lau, with three sisters, tends to be more of a homebody. Working together has given the duo much in synergy and they understand each other so well that one can easily pick up where the other leaves off.
The cameras started rolling in May and the boys already have enough footage for four episodes. At a press conference, the hosts regaled local media with stories of how they were introduced to rappelling down waterfalls, rock blasting, tree cutting, snake catching and bone collecting (as in dusting off human bones in a cemetery, mind you!).
"The longest shoot thus far has been the episode involving stone blasting because it requires a permit for the explosives. It's really dangerous from beginning to end because you have to climb up a mountain of rock some 20 to 30 stories high to put in the explosives," Lau said of the rock blasting episode.
Sharing his experience cutting down a tree using a chainsaw, Chang said: "The roads were so difficult to negotiate that it took an hour just to get to the top of the hill. And, we had only one chance to do it right, because we couldn't possibly cut another tree just for the show."
Snake catching was also a very scary episode for them as some of the trainers got bitten. Chang has a tip for viewers: "If you see a small snake like a cobra, just keep still and don't move. If you see a big snake like a python, run as fast as you can. This is because if you move, snakes are afraid you might attack them."
While the jobs had danger written all over them, the boys said that they took all the necessary precautions. They reported only one injury – Lau showed how he slipped and grazed the knuckles on his right hand as they prepared to rappel down a waterfall.
"It was our first time at the shoot, so we were probably not confident enough," Lau explained.
Chang added: "I watched him get hurt so we got somewhat scared, but the director assured us that we had to trust our trainer."
Both are relatively fresh faces as Lau has previously only participated in the shoot for drama series Ah Beng while Chang is working on another project filming minute-long trailers with co-hosts Danny Boy and Eng Yee Min.
In the age of all-rounder entertainers, these two young TV personalities realise that hosting TV programmes offers them more opportunities to shine as they explore new territory and learn to think on their feet.
Lau, who has some TV experience as a substitute host on a Chinese entertainment programme Astro Show Power, shared that he was quite nervous interviewing the singing duo By2 partly because that show was conducted in Mandarin.
Chang, who loves football and basketball, aspired to be a sportsman as a child. Then, he had a year-long stint as a hairstylist, before finding his calling as a TV host.
Of all the extreme jobs on the list, which are their favourite picks?
Chang immediately piped: "Stunt performer definitely! Everytime we watch people work behind the scenes and see people leaping multiple storeys from above, it looks especially dangerous yet fun. If I have the opportunity to work in movies, I'd go for actioners."
Affable Lau continued with a laugh, "The one I'd like to try is racing."
So, keep your eyes peeled when you next go shopping in Kuala Lumpur as the boys are scheduled to do some high-rise window-cleaning at KLCC some time soon.
