Hi, fellow fans. This week, we have a new episode of "Legendary Locations" on Wednesday night, with lots of reruns of "Expedition Unknown" and "Legendary Locations" the same night on Travel Channel. There is also an all-night "Destination Truth" marathon on Friday.
There is also news about "Expedition Unknown" now being aired on Discovery Channel! Get more information at this link. As far as if this means new episodes will only premiere on Discover and not Travel Channel, or what the situation is, I will get more info for you.
To round up this week's update, check out this blog of times where Josh Gates replied to mean tweets, or tweeted about some important issues in his typical Josh manner. Enjoy!
Being a celebrity on social media opens you up to getting to interact with your biggest fans. It also opens you up to your biggest critics when you voice your opinion. For your amusement, here are the times Joshua Gates of "Expedition Unknown," "Destination Truth" and "Legendary Locations" got savage when replying to mean tweets.
Oh, this old chestnut. When someone says that Josh does not "find anything" on his shows. I have spent many years as the fan site runner of this site trying to explain to people that you can't always throw a net over a cryptozoology creature or a ghost. Also, the nature of researching historical mysteries does not guarantee a major discovery. It's about travel and learning about new cultures. So this reply = YES.
Gosh darn it, I have no idea how this tweet slipped through the cracks with me! On a daily basis, I see questions about why Travel Channel advertises "new" Destination Truth episodes and get a lot of confused, or angry tweets, asking what the deal is.
Travel Channel is airing them out of order from how they were originally shot and aired on Syfy. But it's nice to see Josh address it on his end.
This is as clear cut as it gets. A public figure is a person, too. They are allowed to have their own opinion about politics. Especially when someone is in a position of having influence, it is important that they try to open their fans up to different points of view.
I think he handled this nicely. It IS possible to separate a TV show host, or actor, or singer from their politics.
This one is not so much Josh replying to a hater. This is him using his platform to bring light to an important issue.
As a very frequent traveler, Josh sees the impact that his fellow travelers and the travel industry has on the world. Him bringing this issue of wasting resources on to go food at a hotel is very enlightening.
It is easy when you travel to forget the impact that the plastic utensils we use, and the travel size bottles we throw out, and the take out we consume on the road have on the environment.
Kudos to Josh and I hope that Marriott took this eye opening photo into account for their hotels.
Finally, my favorite time Josh just said IDGAF on Twitter was when he went head to head with McDonalds after watching one of their Super Bowl ads in 2015. Priceless. I'm lovin' it. What are YOUR favorite Josh Gates sassy tweets?

Also, to answer two questions: yes, Travel is airing the "DT" episodes out of order from which they originally were shot and aired. Also, the poll the site ran recently on how you felt about "Legendary Locations" - 54% of you like "Expedition" and "LL" equally, while 23% think "EXU" is better, 8% of you said you did not like "LL" at all (bummer), and 15% said nothing compares to "DT."

Want to be part of a new Josh Gates fan special where you can ask him a Q? Vote here on the best way it would work for you to interact with him!
A note - Josh has faced some backlash on social media lately from fellow fans. First, it was for his part in (not making, but being part of a research team)the reveal of the bust of Nefertiti. Now, it's because he posted a photo of himself with controversial figure Caitlyn Jenner. Whatever your beliefs are, we are entitled to it, but can we please stop with telling a public figure to keep their opinions to themselves or we will stop watching their show? Josh is entitled to his opinion and if you are going to let a person's beliefs get in the way of watching a good show, that is your loss. Please stop verbally abusing a public figure. Thank you.
No new "Expedition Unknown" episodes, but make sure to check out rerun marathons of that and "Destination Truth" on Wednesday and Friday. Check out TravelChannel.com/schedule for more info that reflects your timezone.
