“Dirty Jobs’ is maybe the simplest show in the history of TV, with the possible exception of ‘The Gong Show’. I go around the country; we’ve shot in every state. And we spend a day with people who do jobs that are dirty or dangerous or ridiculous or difficult.”

— Mike Rowe

“It’s funny; it’s a real balancing act. In TV, everybody’s talking about authenticity. In order to make ‘Dirty Jobs’ authentic, I really can’t be overly informed. The minute I am, I become a host… It’s a very tricky business paying a tribute to work, because TV is very bad at it.”

— Mike Rowe

“We need to tell better stories of men and women who master a trade. We have to stop telling kids to blindly follow their passion and show them the opportunities that exist. That was the big, overarching message of ‘Dirty Jobs.’”

— Mike Rowe

“It really wasn’t until I was 15 or 16 years old that I realized that the church was always there; it was always a part of what we were doing, even if it wasn’t at the center of everything we did.”

— Mike Rowe

“Every bad joke, every endorsement deal, all of the things that a typical host would normally get creamed for, people don’t mind, because they know I don’t cheat when it comes to the work I actually try. I’m a lab rat. I’m a perpetual apprentice. The joke is on me if there is one.”
