Dodge has named the top 10 candidates seeking the most significant automotive title in the world, Chief Donut Maker. Applicants were asked to show, in a short video (two minutes maximum), that they embody the spirit of the founding Dodge Brothers. After receiving over 173,500 applications to review, the task was no doubt difficult. Finally, however, Dodge has selected their top 10 candidates for the new title. Reminder: this job pays $150,000 a year, and comes with a Hellcat muscle car.

Dodge Chief Donut Maker: Competition Details

Now, the fun will begin as the finalists will be taken to Radford Racing School to start the four-week competition that will ultimately determine the final two candidates. The Chief Donut Maker will be named on Hemi Day, April 26. Dodge has enlisted champion wrestler Bill Goldberg to oversee the competition between the top 10 finalists that will put their talents to the test—taking the finalists from 10 to five to the final two. The finalists will be thrown into wild hot seat scenarios, including racing a Dodge horsepower heavyweight (with a professional driver on a closed track).

Dodge Charger and Challenger Hellcat For Chief Donut Maker

The finale webisodes documenting the eliminations will air on Dodge’s social media channels like a reality TV show, with the final episode revealing the chief donut maker. The Brotherhood of Muscle clearly loves donuts, with over 170,000 applications, more than 14 million video views, and 576k social engagements across Dodge’s social media channels since announcing the search in January.

The Chief Donut Maker will be a Dodge ambassador, decked out in Dodge gear, driving a Dodge SRT Hellcat, rubbing shoulders with celebrities and racing professionals at epic auto events while making a $150,000 paycheck. Dodge says they won’t need to quit their day job, but with $150,000 a year, it’s hard to see why anyone would continue to work a 9-5 job. Feel free to look at a compilation put together by Dodge that showcases the top ten finalists found below.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
