My Admiration of Mike Rowe

I like Mike Rowe a lot. No, not in some kind of man crush kind of way, but more along the lines that his television personality seems to be the same way that he is in real life. His television show, Dirty Jobs on the Discovery Channel, is in its 5th season and has reached 200+ episodes. The show is entertaining and compelling. Rowe has even been invited to TED (one of my favorite conferences) to present:

Mike Rowe, the host of “Dirty Jobs,” tells some compelling (and horrifying) real-life job stories. Listen for his insights and observations about the nature of hard work, and how it’s been unjustifiably degraded in society today.

Rowe is very well spoken and amusing. What also impressed me was his interview at Reddit, where he answered questions like “Is there any chance you’ll stop having sex with my wife in her dreams? It’s getting pretty old, Mike”. Take a look (this is part 1 of 5):

Seems like a cool guy to go out and drink a beer..or bite off lamb testicles.
