"I became a fan when a friend whom I chat online with kept telling me about this show called Destination Truth. I caught [an episode] in Spetember 2010, so I started in Season 4. After one episode, I was hooked. I found myself tuning in every Thrusday night, entranced in whatever mystery the team was investigating that week. I'd even watch it while chatting with the friend who introduced me to the show, so we could comment on out favorite parts, or funniest moments of the episodes. I've even found myself referencing DT like it was a big pop culture phenomenon. My cell phone is even DT'd up. Ali, who is my favorite of the girls on the team, is my wallpaper. I have now seen all of season 4, and a little bit of the rest. First on my Christmas wish list is the DVD set for season 1, and I can't wait for the new episodes to start next year."
My name is Stacey & I am from Mississippi. I have been a fan of Destination Truth for about 2 or 3 years now & I have seen every season. I love Josh Gates and his sense of humor. He makes the show not only interesting but hilarious! I started paying attention to contests on Twitter & the one I wanted to win most was from DT & Josh. The item up for grabs was a Season One DVD set autographed by Josh Gates himself. When the time came to enter, fans were asked to retweet "Joshua Gates & DT return tomorrow night on SyFy". I did & to my wonderful surprise, I got a Direct Message from Josh saying I had won!!!! I was extremely excited & very thankful for winning my DVD. Josh & DT are awesome!!!!
I didn't become a fan of DT until I saw a marathon of Season 1 before Season 2 premiered. I was hooked instantly! I love Josh's humor and the show reminded me of one of my favorite shows as a kid - "In Search Of." At the time there wasn't any merchandise or much info on the show, but I was lucky enough to find a DVD screener of the first episode of Season 2 ("Yeti") on eBay. It came with a DT "passport" of Josh's and pages showing it had "seen adventure." My favorite page is the one that has a claw mark in it - so clever! I printed off pictures and made a DVD cover for it and it is one of my favorite fan items.
I became a fan during season 2. I immediately found season 1 and was hooked forever. I got to speak to Josh and the producer on your radio show (which was epic!) and I have traveled to a place where Josh has never been - Jamaica, which I learned from our conversation on your show.
