Mike Rowe is a hands-on kind of guy.

In fact, for eight years, this Dirty Jobs host has tried his hand at more than 300 manual labor jobs across all 50 states. This fall, he plans to dig even deeper into people’s obscure professions and hobbies with his new series called Somebody’s Gotta Do It premiering this September on CNN.
