josh gates all star zombie survival team 6 TV Personalities Who Would Survive The Walking Dead

“The Expert” – Josh Gates (Destination Truth)

What do the Orang Pendek, Aswang and Kikiyaon have in common? Besides being some of the worst baby names in the history of the world, they also represent three horrific mythological beasts that Josh Gates has attempted to track down in four seasons of Destination Truth.

With a degree in archeology, a taste for adventure and just a little bit of sheer madness, Gates has spent the past four years trying to track down over 80 beasts that make up some of the world’s most prolific legends.

While one my easily dismiss Gates as someone who has continuously attempted to track down monsters that more than likely don’t exist, one has to admit that it takes some real machismo to chase after any creature where they’re presumed to live, in the middle of the dark.

Sure, 99% of these creatures most likely are just urban legends and don’t actually exist in the wild, but it’s that 1%… that slight chance that Gates might come face to face with the Chullachaqui of Peru or New Zealand’s Giant Moa that makes him ready to battle any zombie.

In fact, Gates has already prepared himself for taking on the undead by traveling to Guam in the fourth season finale of Destination Truth to track down, you guessed it…. ZOMBIES!

Even though numerous feature films and The Walking Dead have made everyone pseudo zombie experts, there’s nothing that’s going to compare to real-life experience… or, at the very least, preparation for a possible real-life experience.

For all his knowledge and real-world experience with mythical beasts, Josh Gates is “The Expert.”

New episodes of Destination Truth will air in 2011, on SyFy.

Of course, even with the knowledge of Josh Gates and leadership/survival skills of Les Stroud, they’re going to need some firepower… They need “The Weaponizer.”

Continue to find out who “The Weaponizer” is…

  1. Why would you need a team of 6 people? Billy the Exterminator would take care of that pesky zombie problem single-handed. (Okay, maybe with a little help from his brother Ricky or his dad Bill.) If Billy finds that he likes killing zombies as much as he likes killing wasps, zombies won’t be safe anywhere!

  2. 1. Spartacus (seriously… spartacus) – the warrior

    2. Ben from lost – the cunning sophisticated dude

    3. Sam winchester (you said no dean)

    4. walker texas ranger

  3. If this ever became a show I would so watch it. I like how people are presenting characters instead of real people. Just because they play a bad ass in film doesn’t mean I want them protecting me from zombies.

    Although I do agree on The Mythbusters. Not as a replacement just back-ups.

    • I kind of thought picking fictional characters was against the rule anyway. And yet some keep doing it.

  4. I think I’d have to have one of the teams from Amerian Loggers or Swamp Loggers as the Secret Weapon. They’re already experts with chainsaws!!

  5. I vote for dee snider!!! Strangeland!!! zombies would be totally screwed

  6. Whabout Mantracker?

    • ugh YES! lose the american friggin pickers and bring in the badass cowboy who can spot a broken twig from 26 miles away at a full gallop on horseback

    • ugh YES! lose the american pickers and bring in the awesome cowboy who can spot a broken twig from 26 miles away at a full gallop on horseback

  7. What would your list look like for fictional TV characters?

  8. Where’s Ronda Rousey, or Chael Sonnen, or Brian Stann and Tim Kennedy? All four of them would do just fine. Lol.
