#1 New York Times bestselling author and star of MTV's The Buried Life, Ben Nemtin's story begins 10 years ago. Fed up with the monotony of day-to-day life in college, Ben and his friends set out on a two-week road trip with a camera and a borrowed RV to complete a list of "100 things to do before you die." For each item they accomplished on their list, they helped a complete stranger cross something off their own list. Since then, Ben and his friends have crossed off nearly all 100 list items and they have encouraged millions to believe that anyone can do anything. Ben's bucket list quest has brought him from the White House to play basketball with President Obama (#95) to Oprah's couch (#61) to having a beer with Prince Harry in London (#82). Currently, Ben is crossing off '#91: Make a Movie', with The Buried Life feature documentary film set to release in 2018.
