Overview

If you think your job is tough, try wading through sewage, concocting a new dish from restaurant food scraps, or cleaning up after thousands of New York City pigeons! These are the kinds of dirty, smelly, and disgusting jobs that host Mike Rowe tackles for your entertainment and enlightenment as he bravely joins the ranks of the unsung laborers who make their living in the most unthinkable ways. You'll experience 21 of Rowe's dirtiest, funniest, and most adventurous jobs from across three seasons in these nine complete episodes. Favorites include "Sewer Inspector," wherein Mike braves San Francisco's sewers, which teem with millions of cockroaches, giant rats, and human waste, and "Pig Farmer," in which he steps into the shoes of an Iowa farmer who must feed and clean up after hundreds of pigs -- including one he has to artificially inseminate. "Ostrich Farmer" finds Mike learning about raising the big birds, from their daily upkeep to collecting their eggs. In "Casino Food Recycler," Mike helps bring buffet leftovers to a pig farmer. "Fuel Tank Cleaner" sends Mike to McConnell Air Force Base in Kansas to help repair fuel tanks, and he enters the dangerous world of Pennsylvania mining in "Coal Miner." A family gathering fleece gets a hand in "Alpaca Shearer," which also finds the crew harvesting mussels. In "Monkey Caretaker," Mike travels to South Africa to help train tame monkeys for survival in the wild. Mike later takes a dip with the men and women who risk their lives working with great white sharks in "Dirty Jobs That Bite." And finally, in the "100th Dirty Job Special," Mike takes a look back at the 99 previous dirty jobs he's tackled and shares behind-the-scenes footage and bloopers.
