Soo.... I just wanted to know how many share my obsession/attraction to the snarkiest, hunkiest, manliest former opera singer on the Discovery Channel.

Please feel free to discuss how amazing his pecs are, discuss your impure thoughts, or how very sexy he makes sewers look.

WHAT?!?!?! You have to be kidding me. Mike Rowe, of Dirty Jobs, on the Discovery Channel. OMG you poor deprived woman!!! I'm crying for you right now.
His pictures don't do him justice. Not only is he burly and smoking HAWT, he is a former opera singer (super yummy voice), and he is Ultra snarky. He constantly cracks jokes and makes witty observations, about poo. /swoon. I swear to god, I could listen to him talk about poo all day long.

Sorry Maestro, my husband has a hard time competing with Mikey, so your sleepy kitty is a sad 3rd on my list. :(

And just cause my husband is reading over my shoulder bitching about me talking about Mike Rowe AGAIN, Mike is nowhere near as hot as my husband. Seriously. I swear.

I LOVE Mike Rowe. I think it's the voice that really puts him on the top of my hot list. Wow. :)

Ray, you're still second on my list, of course. ;)

But... you're a guy! We're supposed to love the ick.

C'mon, take the ick and make it your own.

I'm with you, Scarlet. And I even watch Discovery on a fairly regular basis.You've never seen Mike Rowe or you don't think he's hot?

Because Dirty Jobs is on ALL THE TIME! You can't freaking miss it.

For anyone who doesn't know, Mike Rowe also does the voice-overs for Deadliest Catch and Ghost Hunters.

I've never seen Mike Rowe and I've missed it every time without even trying. Now, Law & Order reruns--those I can't get away from.

Never watched the Deadliest Catch either. And Ghost Hunters has voice-overs?!? Really? I honestly never noticed and I own all the seasons on DVD. LOL!

I've watched the show a few times, and yeah, I think he's pretty yummy. Reminds me rather strongly of my hubby, actually. :)

Didn't know he was an opera singer though. I learn something new everyday on this forum, I swear...

I wonder if those responding could be kind enough to add why they feel the way they do about him.

Trust me - It's not for anything like "so I know what I need to be like blah blah blah" but more of a study in characterization.

What is it you find so attractive? The physical image? A certain personality characteristic? A certain physical characteristic? The face? The body? The voice? His mannerisms? Who he reminds you of? Whatever.

As a writer, I'm always interested in this stuff.

He's definitely a hottie. I just love his voice. I could close my eyes and listen to him all night.

Soccer Mom

It's the total package, BF. He's attractive, manly, fairly athletic, handy with tools, has a deep baritone voice and a quick wit.

:swoon:

I love a man who is good with his hands.

Mike Rowe is so amazingly hot (have I mentioned that?) because he is a total package kind of guy. He is smart, funny, handy, can sing, and he is extremely good looking. Hot as in burly, manly, could wrestle a grizzly to the ground and then slap you on the ass and carry you to the tent for round 9. Phew. I'm sorry....what were we talking about?

Plus, he's got a great personality. He comes across as engaging and funny on the few episodes of Dirty Jobs I've been able to stomach.

PattiTheWicked
10-23-2007, 01:03 AM
He's got a great voice, and he's freakin' hilarious, in addition to being really nice to look at. And there's something appealing about a man who doesn't mind getting dirty.

You know, at work and stuff.

That's why I like him, too, lol. The only edge he's got over my hubby is the fact that he can sing. :)

That said, seriously, my husband looks A LOT like him...they even share the same first name. It's sort of weird, actually, but it makes me feel better about ogling him, hee hee.

While I agree that Mike Rowe is, in fact, uber-hawt, I have to say, I love the pic of Maestro, if that's really his pic. I was always a softie for Asian men. I LOVE Grant from Mythbusters!! Brains, looks, and nerves of steel. Mmmm....

I'm a Deadliest Catch fan, so I knew Mike's voice before I knew his face. Both lead to vivid fantasies.

Draw you own conclusion.

He does voice overs for commercials as well (at least one, but right now I can't remember what for - still swooning over the picture)

Yum.

Never heard of the show. Never heard of him or heard his singing. On looks alone (cuz being female and all, I agree when someone's got the WHOLE package, it's not always about the looks), based solely off the pictures posted... meh. Not my type. Too all-American looking for me. I need more bad boy rock star-ish to show through, then we can talk!;)

I had thought he was still doing Ghost Hunters, but Wikipedia just had him down as the first season. I remembered seeing his name on the credits, but forgot to look and see when that episode I saw it on first aired. I don't pay attention to the credits anymore. But I'll look this week.

Adore Mike Rowe (even if he isn't the typical "Hot Asian Guy" I usually drool over). I think what really attracted me to him is his attitude and humor; not taking himself so seriously. My favorite episode was the killer monkey stalking him.

Also watch a lot of Bear Grylls on Man vs. Wild. He gets naked every so often. Le sigh.

Mud Dauber
10-23-2007, 07:15 PM

Furry and chest should not be in the same sentence with the word 'love', unless you're talking about cute, cuddly animals.

Mike Rowe has the voice and the funny wit that radiates through the show. Personality will always win over brawn.
That being said....
Ray is hotter than Mike Rowe :)

10-23-2007, 07:36 PM
Well, yes, Ray is a hottie. But then, I'm partial to Hot Asian Guys. Therefore, I must take aforementioned Hot Asian Guys out of the equation in order to make comparisons with other mortals.

10-23-2007, 08:44 PM
In response to all -

I too love his furry chest, and there is NOTHING wrong with a hairy chest, Thank you! hairy back, not so much...but male chests are supposed to be hairy.

That history guy looks cute, but he looks like a baby! pfft, I need a MAN. no competition. :)

OMG, the eye crinkles are great. sweet pics everyone!

And jodi, that is TOTALLY my favorite episode too. He was so hilariously out of his depth, and willing to admit it, and that woman was plain mean to him. I also love the one where he makes the flower pots out of manure, only because he seems so amazed by how many different things poo can do. rofl.

And alright, ray is hot...but I think it is creepy to stalk someone you actually interact with, lol. So I will just keep obsessing over Mike. Sorry Ray. lol.

DonnaDuck
10-23-2007, 08:54 PM
I don't even have cable and I know who Mike Rowe is. So he's old enough to be my father. I've dated guys that old before. I mean, come on...have you seen him lately? There was one episode where he was in a wetsuit...rawr. He would probably be my perfect guy--not overtly hot but hot in a man's way (not emo, I wear too much eyeliner and girls clothes like you see now a days, ick), can open my jelly jars (I have a weak upper body) and unclog my toilets (although his fascination for poo is a little disturbing at times but I really think he's the only guy that can say poo that'll make me swoon). Great singer, fantastic personality and snarky. That sense of snarky humor is what really gets me. I just love watching him roll around int he dirt!

My local radio station interviewed him a few months ago - he's hilarious, by the way - anywho, he mentioned his girlfriend doesn't allow him to come home in the clothes he goes to work in.

Must have an endless wardrobe, and a whiny girlfriend.
