** A number of [[strike:female]] [[EvenTheGuysWantHim fans]] seem to find Mike Rowe sexually attractive. Look up ''any'' video on YouTube of Dirty Jobs or just Mike by himself, and there will be at least one comment on just how hot he is.

Popular Creator/DiscoveryChannel show in which host Mike Rowe visits a variety of job sites that are filthy, dangerous, weird, disgusting, or all of the above. He interviews workers, learns about the job, and tries his hand at performing each task. Cancelled in 2012 after eight seasons.

** Aside from, y'know, all the ''actual'' feces (human and non) Mike has dealt with over the years, how about the time he visited a mannequin factory, copped a feel with some undressed torsos (with a pervy far-away look on his face) and asked the guy who makes the vinyl hand replicas if he had "hundreds of hand jobs" every day? Did I mention all of this aired with no bleeping or blurring?

** And the time he was working at a bone black factory and was hammering on the side of a container while making it sound like a BDSM session. The look on the face of his host was priceless.

** Mike also does a lot of voiceover/narration work for other DiscoveryChannel shows and documentaries, which showcases his quite authoritative [[strike:and sexy]] voice.

** He was positively delighted to learn that the hole on the sides of wine barrels is indeed called the [[BeavisAndButthead bunghole]] (twice over: once while actually making the barrels and once while making wine to put into them), and similarly pleased to hear that termite droppings are referred to as "frass."

** Sometimes crosses over with camera''man'' abuse (though usually not intentional) like how Troy got his hair caught in the pull line half way up a skyscraper in Hawaii. If he'd fallen he would have been ''scalped'', but luckily all he lost was a bit of hair thanks to a member of the window washing team and a swiss army knife.
* {{Cancelled}}: Sadly, as of November 2012, the show is No More.
** Briefly subverted in 2013 with Dirty Jobs Down Under, then it got canceled again.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: One particular example in the ''Mike's Day Off'' special, where the series executive producer and CEO of the show's company [[KingIncognito take over as the host]] for one episode. Craig Piligian (the CEO) during a stint as a custom wheel manufacturer bluntly refuses to partake in one of the steps (sanding the wheels, which involves getting dangerously close to the machine) and actually argues with Barsky on camera. Given that Craig signs Barsky's paychecks, he gets his wish and opt out of the sanding. Amusingly, this occurred right after a segment where Craig [[LaserGuidedKarma boasts about how easy Mike's job is]].
