Lee De Paauw was willing to do anything to impress a particular girl...including wrestle a crocodile. The 18-year-old Australian jumped into Johnstone River and ended up with serious injuries after the crocodile latched on.
Eventually, De Paauw freed himself and even after the adrenaline wore off, he says it was all worth it to make a good impression on British backpacker Sophie Paterson. When asked if he knew most Australians think he's the stupidest person in the country, he said he did, but he didn't care.
What's more, the stunt worked. Paterson agreed to go on a date with De Paauw.
