I’m adventurer Josh Gates. I host Expedition Unknown on Travel Channel and hosted Destination Truth on Syfy. I travel to the ends of the earth investigating mysteries and legends. Also, I eat a lot of weird things and drive really dodgy vehicles. ...
Hi. I’m Josh. I have an acute case of wanderlust. My new series, Expedition Unknown, premieres this Thursday, January 8th at 9|8c on The Travel Channel. You can check out the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTb3LwEicng&list=UUJUAqHnkDX15IvFoXIGTm2A
The series investigates the world’s most enduring legends, including the disappearance of Amelia Earhart, Captain Morgan’s lost pirate ship, a mysterious Incan city of gold, mystical artifacts, and more.
Prior to Expedition Unknown, I spent the last 5 years hunting monsters (no, seriously) and investigating reportedly haunted places around the world on Syfy’s Destination Truth. I’ve slept in King Tut’s tomb, explored the Island of the Dolls, and spent a night wandering around Chernobyl because it seemed like a good idea at the time (it wasn’t). I’ve also served as the host of Ghost Hunters Live and various other TV specials. I’ve been to 96 countries and 49 states (damn you, Oregon). Ask me anything.
