Remember the ‘HOT COP’, Daniel Rengering from the NOW VIRAL photo of a trio of Florida policemen preparing for Hurricane Irma relief response? One of the cops, Michael Hamill is accused of making anti-Semitic remarks and joking online about Hitler and Jews. BUT THE OTHER guy on the far right is getting a NEW GIG and it could bag him a MILLION DOLLARS!
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Officer Daniel Rengering of Gainesville, FL has taken a leave of absence to appear on the next season of “Survivor,” which is about to start production. We’re told his patrol job will be there for him if and when he returns.
In case you’re unfamiliar … Rengering and 2 of his cop buddies set the Internet ablaze during Hurricane Irma back in September, basically just for being “hot” and on the ground helping folks. Turns out, the guy in the middle — Michael Hamill — resigned after his anti-Semitic Facebook posts were uncovered. Rengering had nothing to do with that, though.
As for this latest shot at Hollywood … sources tell us Rengering was approached by “Survivor” producers about 6 months ago, and that he agreed to be a contestant. He’s getting paid for the TV gig … no less than $10k … and possibly up to $1M if he wins.
We’re told he’s flying out to Fiji to start filming season 37 by the end of this week. His last day at the Gainesville Police Department was last week.
