Ryan Seacrest, the host of American Idol, was swimming in the Pacific Ocean last Sunday in Mexico. He had ventured out only about eight feet from the shore when he felt something swim by him. Thinking it was just a stick in the current, Ryan wasn’t aware that a shark was about to take a bite out of him. Said Seacrest, “I saw it swim! He took a bite, and he left.”
Fortunately, Ryan wasn’t hurt by the shark attack. Although he was in pain, apparently an aspirin and a fresh application of hair gel is all he needed in the way of treatment for his injuries. The beach was full that day with over 1,000 people. Ryan Seacrest was the only person to get bit by the shy shark. Reports indicate that the shark was a sand shark and it bit Ryan Seacrest’s toe although he found a very small shark tooth embedded in his arm. Coincidentally, this is Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. Hmmm…do you suppose this is some form of promotion for Shark Week?
