Anderson Cooper Mans Up, Dives Into Shark Waters Without the Cage

In 2008, on CNN, we saw Anderson Cooper jump into the ocean off the coast of Cape Town, and swim with great white sharks (below). On Sunday’s 60 Minutes, a CBS newsmagazine, you’re going to see the exact same thing (above). Except there’s one crucial difference.

Back in ’08, Coop was a pussy, diving into the great white’s South African waters in a cage. Lame! What kind of non-life-threatening stunt is that? But this time around, he’s going in without any protection. Just a wetsuit between he and these beautiful terrors. Looks like somebody has grown a pair!

(Watch the video not for the beautiful underwater footage, but to hear Anderson Cooper do a voiceover narration for Anderson Cooper.)
