Texas nanny chosen for paid trip around the world

A family looking for a nanny to travel the world with them made their pick after receiving 24,244 applications.

Derek and M'Kenzie Tillotson requested a globe-trotting nanny on social media and the post went viral.

Eventually, the family had to cut-off the applications but still allowed people to keep applying and told them they'd be on a wait list.

It wasn't easy, but the Tillotsons managed to narrow down the list to 50.

However, Derek decided to look at the wait list, which was up to 7,000.

That's where they found Alaire Moore, a Sugar Land woman who studies special education at UVU. Moore also spends three days a week working at a treatment center for autistic teen boys.

With help from Derek's sister and brother-in-law through interviews, the family invited their two final candidates to spend the weekend with them in Park City.

That's when they decided Moore was the one.
