TWoP 10: Weirdest Jobs on Reality TV

In the past few years, there have been an increasing number of reality shows spotlighting people that have unusual jobs. We don't mean programs like Dirty Jobs or Bizarre Foods, but rather series that focus entirely on specific occupations whose existence we might have been barely aware of if it wasn't for reality TV. And as such shows proliferate, even the once-exotic professional tattooing subculture has come to seem practically mainstream. Here are the ten types of work that we find the most strangely fascinating to watch:
