Are you ready?

Okay, one, two, three, jump.

Twenty-seven people

sailed away from this dock,

they were looking forward

to a great day together,

when suddenly things took

a turn for the worse.

High drama at sea,

a shark cage dive exhibition

was capsized earlier today.

Dumping everyone

into the chilly waters.

An urgent search and

rescue mission is underway

after a shark dive boat was

capsized by a freak wave

off the South Australian coast.

Leaving passengers

and crew stranded

in shark infested waters.


unsuspecting group of tourists

and an experienced

shark cave diving crew

headed out today for

what was supposed to be

a routine and fun day trip.

The dive site had

been baited to attract

Great White Sharks,

some up to 19 feet in length.

No one could possibly predict

what was to happen next.

Eye witness accounts

indicate that the boat

was hit by some kind

of a freak wave.

In the

middle of their cage dive

rough seas struck

washing everyone on board

into shark infested waters.

This time without the

protection of a cage.

In a second we saw

this big wave coming.

Among the people missing are

three friends from California.

Police and rescuers

are holding out hope

they can still be found alive.

We will find those

missing persons

and bring them safely to shore.

Let's go and find

some treasure, shall we.

I've been diving

here in Australia now

for the last 10 years.

Went with a few friends,

we all went to Adelaide.

And I'm just having a nice dive.

My buddies are elsewhere,

I was following a

couple of tropical fish

and I saw something.

I was amazed.

It was a camera and I think,

"What's a camera doing

down on the ocean

10, 20Ks out from the shore?

What have we got?

Told ya we'd find something.

I opened it up, had a look

and the SD card

had been preserved.

I put it into my computer,

started looking through

some of the footage

and, uh, there was three

American people.

- There we go.

- Hey.

- Dude, this looks sweet.

- Good quality?

Yeah, it'll be perfect, bro.

- Does it make me look good?

- Yeah, you look wonderful.

This has got a

photo function here.

Fabio, why don't

you give me a pose?

Hold on.

Everybody hold on.

This isn't a movie, man.

This is the one

that got Megan.

Don't worry, folks,

he's only my half-brother.

That's why you're only half.

Here take this, joker.

What are you

going to do for us?

I don't have to do anything,

Jeffery. I ooze excellence.

Hey, cool shirt, dude.

- This is my

go to Australia shirt.

- That'd be good for

the surface caves.

- Is that deep enough?

Well, the cage dive is,

like, it's a surface cage dive.

Not very deep.

Oh, dude,

I left the tub running.

This battery's pretty low.

Yeah, I know I

haven't charged it yet.

Whoa, it's going to over flow.

When did you

start the bath? Yesterday?

- All right, we ready?

Here we go.

- Okay.

- Yo!

- Hey!

All right.

We're in here.

- Hey, you look nice.

- Hi.

Oh, you got a new camera!

It's really good.

- It works perfect.

- Awesome, cool.

Hey, um, did you

hear from Greg yet?

Is he cool with picking

us up from the airport?

He is, that he is.

He emailed this morning.

All right, well, I got back from

work and I need to shower.

You guys need to vamoose.

Oh, do you need a hand or?

No, I'm okay.

I'm rolling.

- Okay. So here's our show, guys.

- Oh, no.

What I've been talking about,

is an extreme and

intense reality game show

- looking for crazy people.

- - Crazy people.

I thought you

guys would fit right in.

- Oh, look, 100,000 dude.

- I told you so, right?

Are you serious?

Yeah, we're gonna

have fun and it's going to

make us rich.

Step one, we make a seven

minute audition tape.

Why we work together

good as a team

and why they should choose us.

And so then I'll edit it

together and we'll upload it,

but it's pretty much

as simple as that.

I'll take care of it.

There you go, baby brother,

get your pump on.

Rocky it.

Okay, let's set up.

Hey, how you doing?

My name's Josh.

- And I'm Jeff.

- And I'm Megan,

and we're from...

Laguna Beach, California.


- Yeah!

- USA.

There we go.

- All right, did we get that?

- There it is.


Framing out,

getting on camera here.

Our next stop.

- The star of our

little adventure, Jeffery.

- What are you doing?

I'm capturing B-roll,

that's what they call

it in the business.

Just capturing moments, buddy.

Well, it said in the application

that you can't have

a medical condition,

so you might wanna delete that.

That's something I did not know.

I can do that.

We're going to take you on

our journey from California

all the way to Sydney,


Where we're going to

meet our cousin, Greg.

There he is.

Handsome looking guy.

And then we're going

to travel to Adelaide

to film our most

extreme activity yet.

Shark cage diving!

Check it out.

Here it is.

Look at the size

of that frickin' shark.

Look how

close they get.

Oh, my God!

- Oh...!

- You are such a jerk.

Why would you do that?

How are you going

to handle the sharks?

I can't even handle my coffee.

I found out that they were

trying to make an audition tape.

I thought, "I'll post some

of these on social media."

See if I can find the

owner of this SD card,

send it back to them.

You get that, Josh?

Oh, for me?

- I love this spot.

- - Yeah.

Remember when we had
