After being sent packing by his freedom-fighting Libyan soul brothers, UCLA math major Chris Jeon — seen in this video surrounded by slack-jawed Arab Springmates — is out of harm's way and heading back to the U.S. This according to a tweet from The National's Bradley Hope:
Phew! Want to show Chris some solidarity without the hassle of chartering a flight to Libya armed with nothing but frosh chutzpah and a paperback edition of Shoulder-Mounted Rocket Launchers for Dummies? Click "like" on his Facebook fan page!
Or, better yet, watch this sizzle reel of Jeon and a friend shortly after having completed the Tough Mudder endurance competition. Is Oprah still doing that "search for the next talk show host" contest? We have a winner! Bear Grylls, eat your heart out.
