  1. How tall is Josh??? this isn’t Europe if you’re going to use metric also incorporate standard so we the uneducated
    Will have true reference point .

  2. The second sentence states that Josh Gates is the host of Exception Unknown, I don’t think that is correct, it is supposed to be Expedition Unknown.


  3. Please go back and correct the errors. Show Title, as well as Capitalization of the show titles. Some of us still use proper typing skills. Thanks for the info

    • As well as his last name in the 2nd paragraph of his “Early Life”. Unfortunately I’ve noticed most journalists, news outlets and other online media these days, have no concept of punctuation.

  4. Josh and Hallie also had a Daughter, Isla, a few years after their son Owen was born. I sincerely hope their daughter is ok. This article is full of misinformation. They need to get their facts correct!

  5. You’re definitely under paid. Me and my wife love your SHOWS. You make our night watching your shows and hearing all your puns. We’re watching old episodes to get through winter with nothing new to watch. We Love all your shows, thanks for keeping us entertained during the china virus. Cheers.
