The Deadliest Job Interview is the kind of reality television show that will make you sit still and fear for your own life even though you are not the person in the middle of a death-defying situation. These men are men who are looking to find their way up the career ladder in some of the most dangerous jobs in the world, from climbing to the top of redwood trees with a chainsaw in hand to diving down into the depths of the most dangerous, deepest and most insane caves in the world to driving the heaviest and most dangerous trucks in the world.
