On March 24th, Josh Gates shared a photo on Twitter of a fan named Sean he met through the Make a Wish foundation. I sought out Sean's family to help share his story and make him fan of the week. I ended up finding his mom, Patricia, who told me Sean is thrilled to be Fan of the Week! His story is HERE and more photos of their meeting is HERE.
From Will, who made the piece of art above - "My art is kind of like doing a tattoo on a piece of wood with dremels and different types of routers. I've been watching DT from day one - I get a kick out of Josh gates humor. He's quick. I think My wife has a crush on him. I have a webpage I just put up the other day with some of my art I have done for myself as well as others www.pyroportraitsbywillfleming.com "
On a recent DT Fan Radio special, I was able to get Kellie from Week 16th's FOTW to talk to Josh, Ryder & Brad. It was a really touching moment and you can download the special on the homepage HERE (it's the special from 3.10.11) and listen around the 17 minute mark. Also, Marguerite from Week 5's FOTW let me know she received a package in the mail from Erin Ryder, as I pointed out to Ryder this family's fandom for the female DT crew member. She let me know the package had a "signed Erin pic, two snaps from the show (Erin in desert and Erin Josh and elephant) and DT postcard with unknown stamp with season premiere info on back. We are fighting over the Josh pic :) Jamie is really happy..."
