READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Roughly 24 hours since going on the proverbial "ride of his life," on Monday evening Chris Kreis will join Piers Morgan with all the details.
On Sunday, the 19-year-old Floridian sprang from his parents boat, hitching a 20 second voyage on the back of a 30-foot whale shark.
The great 50,000 pound beast was swimming in the Gulf of Mexico when Kreis decided to go along for the ride. Captured on video, the teens stunt is not illegal, but it controversial, as human contact can be harmful.
Tune in this evening at 9 as Morgan welcomes Kreis for a live interview, during which the Florida teen will explain the circumstances that led to him leaping out of his boat, and climbing aboard a creature whose size is similar to that of a school bus.

Sorry, this is still a form of animal abuse. This jerk should have some respect for all creatures. He must have caused it stress and easily could have harmed it. Let him get kicks some other more mature way and the media should not be encouraging this. Who raised this kid?
It was a clever move and one that every young person who gets the opportunity to should try for themselves. Everyone who watches this idiot Pierce Morgan's little show should rush to the nearest shark infested waters and dive in as soon as possible. Perhaps you too will get to announce your exceptionally high level of stupidity on tee-vee! Have someone videotape it and put it on YouTube for the rest of us to enjoy. Thank you so much.
I always respect Mr. Pierce when he stepped up to take replace of Mr. King, but these types of so called interviews, really causes he losing, not only the respect for the show, but himself!
This ' Jump the Shark ' segment is going to be Enthralling tonight !...It is Crazy...Dangerous...Unbelievable..Remarkable...Exciting and Happening News all at the same time...Let's watch it with a Safety disclaimer included.
Piers, you've got it all tonight.
"Male or Female? Surely it can't be the same!!"
"Put-put, now becomes Pot-pot, but with a little more drive?"
"If you've got it! Never daunt it, when you can flaunt it! Pierse!"
"Not he that, can, hear, but he that can do both!"
Other countries like Australia regulate contact with Whale Sharks to allow swimming with but no touching. It is to protect both shark and human.
The young lad is not a jerk... but more as he said, uneducated. Hopefully this program goes some way to educating the masses.
What a complete and utter idiot. This is abusive. This guy needs to be "educated" with fines.
Oh dearly me. This isn't news. This is stupidity on a whale shark scale. Look but do not touch. For Piers Morgan to highlight this as being newsworthy, rather reiterates his credibility of being the poor, immature and destructive 'journalist' we know him to be.
