NEW YORK (April 21, 2017) – From the vast deserts of Africa to the icy heights of the Himalaya, Travel Channel premieres “Josh Gates’ Destination Truth” beginning on Friday, May 19 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In the 43 one-hour episodes, explorer Josh Gates experiences hilarious and harrowing adventures in search of the truth behind the world’s most unusual mysteries. Set in more than 50 breathtaking sites like Machu Picchu, Peru, and Petra, Jordan, “Josh Gates’ Destination Truth” is one of the most international shows on television.

“These are some of my most unusual, thrilling, weird, and often hilarious travel adventures,” said Gates. “It’s all about real investigations of fascinating mysteries – from sightings of cryptozoological creatures to otherworldly phenomena, we point our compass toward the unexplained. It’s a wild ride, and the truth, as they say, is out there.”

​In the premiere episode, Gates first heads to the islands of Indonesia in search of the elusive orang pendek. With several local sightings, he is on a mission to find the creature that may be inhabiting the forests of Sumatra. Gates also travels to Iceland to uncover the truth behind a worm monster that reportedly resides in Lake Lagarfljot.

Whether it’s sightings of a mysterious sea creature in the Mediterranean or puzzling lights in the skies over Kazakhstan, Gates meets eyewitnesses claiming encounters with the unknown in each episode. Upcoming adventures will include the world’s first overnight filming in King Tut’s tomb and the first-ever night exploration of the world’s largest religious structure at Angkor Wat.

    Destination Truth was the original garbage cryptozoology and Fortean phenomenon reality TV show and its host and co-executive producer is a clown. Gates would show up halfway across the world in some very remote country and pompously mock the locals for their lack of sophistication. He would set up a “base camp” in the jungle for the sole purpose of having some flunky get on the walkie-talkie so he could pretend he was some sort of special forces warrior when he growled “Josh to Base! Josh to Base!” They would stumble around in the dark, screaming every time a bird or insect chirped or a leaf fluttered down, as if they were re-enacting the Blair Witch Project, every single episode they would run out of batteries for their cameras after just a few hours (apparently no one on the team was smart enough to bring extras or chargers), and then announce they were returning to Los Angeles with “all of their evidence” which never turned out to be anything whatsoever. It was worthless garbage designed to appeal to an average 5th-grade intellect; I think smart 5th graders could have done a lot better, more credible job.
