Hump Day Hottie

This weeks Hump Day Hottie was born March 18, 1962 in Baltimore, Maryland.
It was during his service project for Eagle Scout at the Maryland School for the Blind that he read aloud for the first time, which he cites as one of the reasons he became interested in narrating.
He attended Towson University in Baltimore County, MD.
He currently lives in San Francisco, CA where he attempts to "pursue a life of serial monogamy with a very understanding woman."
Some of the things that he has done are unexpected. He sang professionaly with the Baltimore Opera, sold over $100 milliion of "simulated" diamonds on QVC and appeared in several dozen commercials for Tylenol.
He has hosted Worst Case Scenarios for TBS, The Most for The History Channel, No Relation for FX and New York Expeditions for PBS.
His first work with Discovery includes a trip to the Valley of the Golden Mummies to host Egypt Week Live!. In addition to the job that he is most famous for his work for Discover now includes announcing for American Chopper, American Hot Rod, and Deadliest Catch.
He is best known for getting down and dirty as the host of Dirty Jobs where he has done jobs ranging from cleaning out sewers in LA to assiting in whale autopsies. Getting dirty and smelly are requirements of this job and he seems to love it.
I would get dirty and smelly with him any day of the week.

This weeks Hump Day Hottie is ~ Mike Rowe

Woo hoo!! Excellent choice! I love Mike Rowe! I knew who you were talking about as soon as you mentioned he was born in Baltimore! He's definitely a hottie and he's hilarious and he wrestles Lake Erie water snakes. How cool is that?

As someone who has called the fine city of Baltimore, MD home for the last year and I can totally see why he is comfortable being smelly and dirty. They are traits that just come naturally being aroung here.

#1. "I know he's not singing Mamie, right?"
#2. "My mother used to introduce me to little female playmates as a real "Hump Day Hottie" all through my formative years. So I really have a problem with that term."
#3. "Who the heck is Mike Rowe?"

Tara ~ I got totally sucked into the show over the weekend. He is very funny and VERY sexy!!!

Eric ~ I haven't been to MD so I will take your word on that one.

MJB~ Mike Rowe is the host of a Discovery Channel show called Dirty Jobs. The premise is that people write in about their jobs and if they are dirty or smelly enough he will come out and work with you for a day. Let me tell you, there are some REALLY dirty and REALLY smelly jobs out there.

Writer on Board ~
#1 I haven't heard him sing on the show so I have a feeling he isn't singing "Mamie" right now.
#2 Sorry that the hump day hottie thing puts you on edge. I think that it is a fantastic term but I can understand how it could be come uncomfortable when your mom calls you that. Were you born on a Wednesday?
#3 See the above explanation that I gave to MJB :)
