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.

Hi, fellow fans. March is right around the corner. Crazy!
This week, there is a new episode of "Expedition Unknown" this Wednesday night on Travel Channel, as well as other "Expedition" reruns and "Destination Truth" reruns throughout the week. Go to TravelChannel.com/schedule to see when episodes air for your time zone!
Hi guys. I'm going to share some news and this week's airing schedule with you, and then I want to comment on a recent controversy we have all fallen into as fans of Josh Gates and "Expedition Unknown." I am hoping it comes off as informative and not argumentative.
More episodes of "Expedition Unknown" (EXU) have been ordered by Travel Channel! You can read more about it in this article
This week, there is a new episode on Wednesday night, except it's one of the Global Game Show episodes where Josh interviews fellow travelers with history trivia of the location they are visiting and we are usually treated to never before seen footage. You can see when there are reruns at this link
This is not the controversy in question, but just some feedback - there are some fans who moan on social media that these are not "real" episodes. I encourage you to mentally revisit that time period when "Destination Truth" (DT) was on an extended hiatus to the point where we begged for anything, even episodes with unseen footage or outtakes, before it was unceremoniously cancelled. Let's be grateful that Travel Channel loves to keep the EXU content coming!
Now, we address the Nefertiti controversy. Josh has received some backlash after revealing this bust that he and his team of historians worked so hard on via the Today Show. Accusations of white washing her image and so on. My feedback on this is merely presenting to you quotes from other people involved to hopefully smooth this over. This may be useful if you have friends, family or acquaintances who are also upset by this recent historical reveal.
I think a summation of the bust can be examined in the statement Josh gave at the end of Episode 8 of Season 5, which I transcribed here for you all: "Only one question remains - is this the face of Nefertiti? [...] The reconstruction also bears similarities to the bust in Cairo and depictions in other museums around the world. While the shape and features of Elizabeth's reconstruction are forensically accurate, the skin tone is more hypothetical. Ancient Egypt was ethnically diverse - a melting pot of cultures from within Africa all the way to the near East. Since Nefertiti's parentage is a matter of debate, the skin tone of the famed Berlin bust, which was crafted in Nefertiti's era, was used for reference."
Ramy Romany, someone from Egypt, who was featured on past "Destination Truth" episodes in terms of Egyptian history and a past advocate of preserving Egypt's history right here on this fan site, has taken to helping defend Josh. When someone on Instagram commented that we should stop white washing history, he replied "This reconstruction is definitely brown. Like my skin tone type brown. Quite not the white." Remember, I am just quoting what someone else said here, but even I chuckled at the reply!
For the full story on how this bust came to be, please refer directly to Episodes 7 and 8 from Season 5 of "Expedition Unknown" via iTunes or reruns on Travel Channel. From the 35 minute mark to the end of episode 8, in particular, is especially helpful in this evaluation. I encourage you to send your support to Josh and his team on their various social media handles, as well as to contribute to this fan post. Have a great week, guys!
Ps - please keep any comments left here civil :-)
