As 30 Rock's Tracy Jordan once wisely advised, "Live every week like it's Shark Week." And, dun dun dun dun, Shark Week is approaching rapidly, and this time, with major incentive: USDirect is offering $1,000 to one Shark Week-loving aficionado. Here's what we know. 

To celebrate Shark Week, USDirect is looking to "fork over $1,000 to one brave soul willing to watch every minute of 2020 Shark Week." And fear not, the DIRECTTV dealer is not shark-biased, "We don’t care if you love lemon sharks more than hammerheads or sand sharks more than a hopeful vegetarian great white named Bruce."

How do you know if you're up for the job? According to the application page:

  1. You gotta love sharks—enough to celebrate them for a whole week.
  2. You have to be at least 18 years old and a U.S. resident.
  3. You have to be willing to document your Shark Week marathon on your social media.

So yeah, you'll definitely be working for the money, posting a ton of content along the away about facts you've learned as well as ranking the programs with hashtag #SharkWeekDreamJawb.

Think you can swim with the sharks? Apply here, and psst, have your favorite shark fact ready.
