Tai & Julianna, Canada
The beautiful couple was rewarded with a trip to Mexico where they swam with 100 whale sharks – the biggest fish in the world!
“It was overwhelming,” Paik said. “You see them coming up through the darkness with their mouth open. They’re scary looking because of the image we have of Jaws, but they’re harmless, very gentle, and so beautiful.”
Tai was unfazed by the fact the sharks were big enough to swallow him. ”It was very calming to be in the water with them. They were just minding their own business.”
