'Stewardess' Richard Branson

After losing a bet with AirAsia chief Tony Fernandes in 2010 over Formula One racing, Virgin Group founder Richard Branson shaved his legs and donned a red skirt and makeup to work as a flight attendant on an AirAsia flight from Australia to Malaysia. Fernandes 'fired' Branson after the flight for dropping orange juice in his lap mid-flight. The stunt raised money for a children's hospital.
