I'll take any excuse I can get to hang out with Mike Rowe. Sure he's on a hit TV show, has a deep, velvety voice and is often described as "ruggedly handsome," but he's also hilarious and a genuinely good guy. Pretty much what you see on TV is what you get with Mike.
As 'Dirty Jobs' returns with new episodes (Tues., Oct. 19, 9PM ET on Discovery), Mike talks about working his way up -- to the sewer -- and reminisces about his glamorous Discovery Channel beginnings on a little travel show called 'Romantic Escapes.' He then explains why deep down, he doesn't like people (he kids, he kids!), and tells me why they'll never run out of 'Dirty Jobs.'
We also dish about most popular episodes, an upcoming manscaping segment with producer and regular target Dave Barsky going under the wax and what Mike will probably be doing in 20 years.
