Around the World With Jerry Guo

  • International man of mystery, Jerry Guo, has touched down in places most Americans can’t set foot. From North Korea to Tehran, Mr. Guo has a special knack for talking himself into dangerous places. This charisma is helpful when it comes to nabbing interviews. Not many people can claim to have chatted with Sir Richard Branson and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the same afternoon. Given his proclivity for stretching the truth, Betabeat put together a little slideshow of his adventures with a simple maxim in mind: Pics or it didn’t happen.


  1. Delhi Belly says:

    Pics look authentic, aren`t they?

  2. Scott says:

    Is it just me or does he seem like a giant in every single picture.
