“The Secret Weapon” – Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs)
If there is a job to be done, Mike Rowe has done it. How well he does that job is another story. After 140 episodes of Dirty Jobs, Rowe has traveled across the country doing some of the worst jobs known to man.
Whether it be a worm dung farmer, a diaper cleaner or an animal barber, Rowe is most certainly the closest thing you’ll get to a human Swiss Army knife. What more could anyone ask for when the zombies come a running, er, walking slowly, with their arm stretched out.
While it’s great to have experts in a specific field, there’s something reassuring about having someone who is a jack of all trades. Rowe could not only pick up the slack of any of our previous experts, he could also provide some great narration to the current events… like he has done for many years on Ghost Hunters, American Chopper, Deadliest Catch and countless other Craig Piligian-produced series.
For these reasons and his overall manliness, Mike Rowe is “The Secret Weapon.”
Dirty Jobs airs Tuesdays @9pm, on Discovery.
With our all-star team now assembled, would-be zombie invaders had better take notice: This team will be out for vindication and could single-handedly save the human race (well, what’s left of it). No matter how much dirty zombie blood has to be spilled.
As with any list, this is completely subjective. While we tried to put together who we best thought should be included, there’s no doubt that everyone’s list will be different – albeit only slightly, of course.
This list may not be perfect, but if (when?) the zombie apocalypse does occur, I’ll hide safely behind this team… good luck with yours.
The first season finale of The Walking Dead airs Sunday, December 5th 2010 @10pm, on AMC.
