Felix Baumgartner jumped from the edge of space to find himself landed in the American pop culture and celebrity world. Not surprising considering: 1) his world record-breaking feat, and 2) his "easy on the eyes" factor. Thanks to both factors, Baumgartner has been getting the celebrity treatment from the likes of TMZ, Perez Hilton, talk shows, and paparazzi. What Baumgartner accomplished is insanely courageous and amazing, and I do believe he desrves the noteriety and successes, but I sincerely hope the star treatment doesn't ruin that good looking head of his.
From IOL Scitech: After breaking the sound barrier on his way to recording the highest and fastest skydive with a 39-kilometre, 1,342-kilometres-per-hour leap on October 14, Baumgartner has landed in the US celebrity scene.
Gossip magazines have been quick to latch on to the hunky 43-year-old's new-found fame, with comparisons now being drawn with his compatriot, movie star and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
