QUESTION Who is the first person in the history of the universe to cross the biggest waterfall in the world, the Victoria Falls in Africa, suspended by a rope?
ANSWER Elijah Wood, that's who!!!
I hadn't given much thought to how I'd feel watching Adrenaline Junkie - I was just excited to be seeing Elijah again. During the programme my stomach was doing constant somersaults, I kept thanking my lucky stars that this wasn't a live programme and by the time it was over I just felt so very, very proud of him. He embraced all those dangerous adventures with such enthusiasm and what I can only describe as sheer joy. I don't think that smile left his face for the entire programme!! Surfacing from the depths of the Zambesi River after being 'held under' for quite some time, he described as being 'a little concerned' but also 'exhilerating'. This was during the four days they spent white water rafting some extremely dangerous rapids. I'm sure he could end up in The Guiness Book of Records for the Victoria Falls rope crossing. He was closely followed by Jack Osbourne - a game of scissors, paper, stone had decided who would go first. And what did Elijah do when he reached the middle of the rope - a tiny figure suspended over those mighty falls? Reached for his beloved camera and started clicking away, that's what!!!
I'm so proud of him:)
