Top 50 candidates spread the word around the globe

21Apr10

Since the announcement of the Top 50 candidates to the Ultimate Job in Ireland, things have been really heating up, as the couples tried to get as much media coverage as possible to get the votes in for their applications.

In the end, Daniela and Dave got a very well deserved Wildcard, thanks to mass public support in Brazil and South Africa (see their inteview with South Brazil TV here); but well done to all the other Top 50 couples, for doing an amazing PR job and spreading the word around the globe. These are some of the highlights:
