Ben Nemtin and his three childhood friends started "The Buried Life" in Victoria, BC in 2006. They made a list of '100 things to do before you die' and for every list item they accomplished, they helped a complete stranger cross something off their bucket list. Since then, they've crossed off '#53: Make a TV Show (on MTV)', '#19: Write a #1 New York Times Bestselling Book', '#67: Be Interviewed by Oprah' and have encouraged millions to believe that the impossible is truly possible. Ben and his friends have 9 items left on their list and are currently crossing off '#91: Make a Movie', producing "The Buried Life" documentary film. 

Ladies and gentlemen, please give a warm welcome to Ben Nemtin!

And most importantly, every time they accomplished a dream, they helped a complete stranger cross something off their bucket list. From playing basketball with President Obama to streaking a professional soccer field, from raising over $400,000 for charity to placing a record-breaking $250,000 bet on roulette—Ben’s bucket list quest has inspired millions to chase their dreams and realize that impossible is possible.
