“Dirty Jobs” Returns to Hawaii

Mike Rowe, the host of the Discovery Channel’s “Dirty Jobs,” was in Honolulu in July, taking a turn as a window washer dangling from the 45-story One Waterfront Towers (as captured above by my friend Blaine Fergerstrom). According to a promo attached to tonight’s season premiere, the episode will air next week Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 9 p.m. HST.

The show has been to Hawaii a few times before. Previous “dirty jobs” Mike Rowe has performed included harvesting taro roots, working on a coffee farm, and collecting algae for a pharmaceutical company. He also took a bath in volcanic mud from the Big Island.

Check out this recent interview with Mike Rowe on CNBC, which includes clips from his window washing gig:

  1. I’m going to have to watch that one! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Having lived on the 34th floor at Chateau Waikiki right across the way, I was always fascinated by these daredevil window washers. They literally take “we do windows” to a new level.

    Mahalo nui loa for sharing this.

    Last week I saw a Rachel Ray show about her vacation to Oahu. It featured a bunch of restaurants in Diamond Head and Waikiki. Long spot on Rum Fire at the Sheraton.

    That has to be good for tourism here. Glad to see Oahu getting some press!
