After trying out some blindfolded Thai boxing (coincidentally, Ryan Gosling is in Bangkok right now training with professional Thai boxers for a new movie role and we have a feeling he looks way better in the ring than Karl did), getting a massage from a rehabilitated prisoner, and visiting a King Cobra Village, Karl decided to do something he wanted to do- see monkeys.
Karl was greatly disappointed when he realize how aggressive the "cute" monkeys in Lopburi were as they pulled food from his pockets and climbed on top of his perfectly round head. As he left Thailand, Karl shared these words of wisdom with the audience, "Don't wish for anything because it's never what you think."
Finally, karl was back in the air and on back on track for swimming with dolphins in Australia when Ricky called to tell him he wouldn't be swimming with dolphins at all, instead he was going to be cage diving with sharks.
As he arrived in Port Lincoln, Australia, Karl immediately called Ricky and refused to go through with ita routine that is growing tiresome from week to weekranting about the size of the cage and the danger involved, but of course in the end he did manage to suck it up and get on the boat.
After spending a night at sea, Karl was given a diving suit and mask (which he said made him feel like the Elephant Man) and was lowered into a small metal cage, then into the ocean surround by buckets of fish to attract sharks. After panicking for a few minutes (which he spent in the bathroom with a mug of soup) Karl decided "If I've got to do it let's just get it over and done with." So he was lowered back into the water where he stood in his cage as sharks circled him. If you're wondering what Shark Cage Diving is like, Karl explained it, "is like when you're driving and you've got a wasp in the car, you can't relax."
If that sounds lie your kind of fun, there are several companies running Shark Cage Diving trips in the Port Lincoln area, including Calypso Stars which is currently booking one-day Shark Tours starting at $507.25 for adults. To book a trip or get more information, visit sharkcagediving.com.
