Mike Rowe began his entertainment career in 1984 when he began performing with the Baltimore Opera. Rowe’s first television appearance was in 1990 following his audition for the QVC Shopping Channel. It was with his QVC experience that Mike gained the skills that would serve him well as a TV Host. 

After years of freelance jobs and doing small sports in advertising, Mike pitched what would become “Dirty Jobs” to the Discovery Channel. Audiences loved it, Discovery ordered 39 episodes, and the rest is history. 

Mike would become “the dirtiest man on TV,” traveling to all 50 states and completing over 300 different jobs. Many credit the explosive success of reality TV focused on working-class Americans to the iconic image that Dirty Jobs created. 

Following the success of Dirty Jobs, he launched mikeroweWORKS, a philanthropic organization that provides scholarships to those training in blue-collar trades.
