1. Professional Snuggler is the first weird job on the most unusual jobs list
You can get paid from $60 to $80 an hour for hugging someone. There are people who suddenly feel all alone and need someone to give them a hug and there are companies who are offering just that. But, bear in mind, if you want to work as a professional snuggler, there have to be only hugs, no more than that!

4. Bed Tester
Companies and hotels have people who are paid to sleep, ,more specifically, to test the beds and mattresses. It might sound like a dream, but it can also be a nightmare. You have to know how to lie down in bed so that you check the mattress and so on. Science, baby! My dream job.
5. Paper Towel Sniffer
You have bigger chances of becoming a brain surgeon than a paper towel sniffer. No kidding! Paper towel sniffers are people hired to make sure that the products have no undesirable smells. Hard job and great responsibility. Or not? What do you think?
6. Face Feeler
You have to have very sensitive hands for this weird job. Feelers feel people’s skin to see if there are any improvements from using a specific product. They have quite a big responsibility, since it stands in their power to accept or decline a certain product from being produced for the masses.
7. Line Stander
Did you know you can hire a professional line stander to stand in a queue for you? For money, of course. For example, if you want to be one of the first persons who want to get their hands on a new released iPhone, you can hire a line stander to wait for 20 hours or so in front of the Apple Store.
If you have enough money to buy the newest iPhone, you probably have enough to pay for a line stander, as well. Just saying!

10. Body Part Model
The world of modelling is not only after a full package. If you happen to have very beautiful hands or attractive feet, you can still get a place in the modeling world.
On the other hand, there are manufacturers who are looking for ugly feet or hands to make a point about their products. Not sure how they put up the job description for this, though…
