You’re Very Welcome, Josh Gates

Moving on to something MORE important today (heck it’s probably the most important piece of news EVER) — this website has been mentioned on a radio interview with Josh Gates on “Destination Truth” Fan Radio Special by my new super best friend Amanda at Mandogg House Radio. She is awesome times infinity. I have never felt like this since I saw Paul Rudd naked on SNL! To listen to it, head to here where you can listen or download it. The magic happened at 49:20 into the interview. PURE FREAKIN’ MAGIC. I’m going to edit out that part, put it in my iPod and loop it forever for the rest of the weekend. Josh’s variable pitch voice is like sweet, sweet music to my ears. FACT. For your information, Josh — this website doesn’t only feature commercially hunky men (well, it appears so but it’s actually not), it’s a platform for the public to drool at lesser known hotness like yourself. Thank you for your generous consideration to get shirtless on the show. I think you’ve successfully gained yourself another million fans (probably just me and the other guy but hey). Transcript, after the jump. Forgive my geriatric hearing if I got it wrong.

Amanda: Another very interesting, um (oh get on with it Amanda, you know
it’s important) question that someone brought to my attention that kind of
revisits the NOH8 Campaign thing, but there’s a website called
Squarehippies.com that’s run by a bunch of fabulous gay men and they have
a whole page up that says they want Josh to go shirtless on DT.

Josh Gates: Hold the phone.

Brad Kuhlman: Hold on a second.

Josh Gates: Square? Hippies? Dot com? (I die)

Amanda: *giggles* Um, yes let me just check to confirm that. Um, I thought
I was going to pee in my pants when I read some of the comments but I mean
that’s another demographic who watches your show. I figure I’d get an
answer for them.

Josh Gates: Well I am at Squarehippies.com right now and I am looking at a
lot of photos of shirtless men…

Brad Kuhlman: He has it bookmarked.

Josh Gates: It’s bookmarked now (I die, again) and um, most of them
appeared to be in better shape than me. There’s Steve Guttenberg in The
Bedroom Window… That is intimidating to me, I feel like I’m not… Oh look
there’s shirtless Eddie McClintock. (please tell him we say hi?)

Brad Kuhlman: Yeah, there he is…

Josh Gates: There he is, Eddie McClintock. Put your shirt on Eddie
McClintock. Uh yeah. Look, this is an intimidating group of shirtless male
actors that I have to… Jon Hamm?! How can I compete with Jon Hamm? How am
I going to compete with Don Draper?

Amanda: I found the page, hold on… “The Truth About Josh Gates. Josh Gates
is the host of SyFy’s Destination Truth, but the real truth is 90% of men
loving population of planet earth wanted to see him shirtless!”

Brad Kuhlman: Fair enough.

Josh Gates: …Okay I will take it under consideration. We may not be able
to extend the call now though, because I need to get some sit ups done.
(some like it chunky, FYI)

Amanda: *blushes* Well, I expect a lot of drinks from my fellow gay men
(Amanda wanted me to point out, post-interview, that she is not a gay man,
but she sometimes wishes she were one)
. Um, yeah so anyway, I got that out
of the way. That was hilarious. Everyone in the chat room is dying.

Josh Gates: I would like to thank Squarehippies.com for thinking of me, I
appreciate that. (I die for the third time)

Amanda: Aw. I’m sure a lot of men have just wet their pants (this is
fact)
. So there you go, who doesn’t say that the SyFy channel isn’t LGBT
friendly? (also fact, fact, fact, fact, fact, fact and fact).

Josh Gates: There we go… (straight to my crotch)

Again, go here to listen to the magic at 49:20. “Destination Truth” premieres last night on SyFy. There is no concrete evidence that Josh Gates will be shirtless this season, but know this — about a million pairs of eyeballs will be watching and anticipating for the very moment when he is finally de-shirted. The world continues to wait with baited breath…

    I do find him to be cute but personally I do not like listening to him. Sorry to say but his voice irritates me. I’ll leave it at that and refrain from saying something which can be interpreted as being unnecessarily mean. After all we can’t all like the same thing or there would be just too much competition.

  • I predict shirtlessness after he gets some exercising done! Who doesn’t want to show it off when he knows there’s a ready audience for it?!

    Congratulations, Square! Every media mention is well-deserved for all your hard work, for this gorgeous site! oxoSB

  • KarmaLysing

    …Although I would like to correct Amanda’s assumption that everyone who posts on the site is a gay man… I, for instance, am neither. :/

  • Happy to shout you out, Square! It’ll go down as a classic moment on my radio show, for sure.

  • KarmaLysing – I said “a bunch of (fabulous) gay men” and I’m obviously neither either, so not making a total assumption 😉 I can understand the confusion though

  • Beagz

    Square – I really believe there is absolutely NOTHING you can’t do!

  • Skyler

    Yay, Square!!!! Oooh, and I’m the one who originally uploaded the pictures of Josh on the forum and started the whole Josh gates thing, so yay me? Maybe, I sound a bit ego-centric with that, though. Super proud of you, Square!!!!!!

  • robertg

    this is so, so, so, so COOOOOL, Square!! Another coup. Josh G. should be super-complimented. We don’t care if you get to the gym or not, Josh, off with the shirt!

  • robertg

    Amanda: [this is too many posts which is a no-no, but I don’t care, I just don’t care I tell you–and others.] Josh G. is a hugely coveted type of male here: a gingey.
    The site, those of us on it with proper taste, just goes nuts when one appears. Even shirted. But, we don’t put up with that for long. Harassment begins. If that doesn’t work, threats of “off with your shirt, or off with your head!” and the culprit is brought to our tastefully appointed “Guillotine Room”. Now, how we plan to GET the culprit is a solution in process. But, just let Josh know, we are persistent, yet, we don’t wish to get squired into court on stalking charges. This is has been fun.

  • Josh is beautfiul the way he is. There have been many men on here with less than perfect bodies.

  • armpitluver

    mmmmmmm! that radio interview was amazing! i was so disappointed last season when everyone took their shirts off in an episode, but not yummy Josh. he used to be pretty chubby but he has definitely shed a few and looks very cute! if not on the show, he should make a video just for his fans here exposing his beautiful shirtless self!

  • Reese

    I hope he’s reading this. He’s a handsome and intelligent man. I watch the show, I find it entertaining and informative, and yes, I’d like to see Josh Gates shirtless.

  • Yes, Square and others did create this whole proposition in the first place, and this comment is not aimed at the nice people who run this site, but this moment wouldn’t have happened at all if it weren’t for my show? And I did it without being asked to by anyone at this site. Petty, maybe, but just sayin’…

  • PS – plugged you here, Square http://joshuagatesfan.weebly.com/1/post/2010/09/fan-articles.html

    Thank you again for the nice comments 🙂 I do it all for my fellow fans!

    • @Amanda I can’t thank you enough for this. REALLY REALLY!

  • robertg

    @Amanda: Credit where credit is due: YOU. You got the interview, the good and fun questions and answers, we got the benefit. I know Square would agree. In the long run, he’s sometimes too self-effacing for his own good. He’s clearly thrilled to have been mentioned, as are we all for him. thanks for that. And now, many more of us know about you! 😀

  • LOL you’re too cute, Square 🙂 I would assume you probably want to maintain a sense of anonymity because you’re running this site, but I’d love to add you on Facebook, if you’d be willing. and thank you, Robertg, I’m very flattered 🙂 you should check out my other radio specials, and video interviews, with Josh! He recently said at the “Sanctuary” Comic Con panel he moderated that Robin Dunne (a male actor on the show) was his secret boyfriend and i nearly died! When I brought it up to Josh on camera about the rumor they were boyfriends, Josh was like “that’s not a rumor” hahahaha

  • robertg

    Amanda: yes, Square wants to be on Facebook. He just said so. Now, as part of joining, you will want a good pic of him, won’t you? And, it has to be HIM, notarized and attested to. There is a small cabal here that insists Square is a very sophisticated computer thing that actually seems human it’s so good at what it does. Sort of like “Hal” in “2001: A Space Odyssey” [“no, Dave, don’t do that, Dave. Dave, please, Dave, don’t do that. . . Dave. .. .Da. . . “] Therefore, a photo, the REAL thing, would dispel this notion. If I were you, I’d insist on shirtless, make up some reason. Say, why not interview him? It is possible to get a voiceprint off something like that. then we’ll have to figure out what to do with it. But, one thing at a time….

  • LOL! I actually asked Square if I could interview him on my radio show when I emailed him in private a few days ago. No answer yet. Guess Square insists upon his anonymity 🙁

  • robertg

    there has to be a way to get around this. he’s not saying anything here either.
    must be thieving caps from all the other sites he prowls around in which means he’s not paying attention. that does happen now and again. So, get Josh G. to invite him to lunch, somewhere “anonymous”, and you just happen to be there! How does that sound? Someone will have to put up plane fare unless the strangest of coincidences puts everybody in the same place at the same time. Now, granted this is a lot of legwork, but we’ve tried just about everything else and this seems to be a golden opportunity, as it were. Anonymous, schbonymous! 😉

  • Well, I know you’re mostly kidding, but I’m not BFF’s with Josh, unfortunately. I would get Josh to meet everyone of his fans if I could and Josh had the time, trust me 🙁 I am glad I could make Square’s day by doing this for him, and everyone else who agrees with him LOL

    yep, kidding all the way–this has been fun!

  • KarmaLysing

    Here’s some encouragement for Mr. Gates to help him overcome his shyness.

    Two words: Mike Rowe. The guy’s a straight-up “everyman”, with what I would say is a fairly average physique, but OH MY LORD…

    Movie star looks and a gym rat physique are not a requirement for “sexy”, Mr. Gates, and you, my good man, are SEXY.

    That is all.

  • JuanCarlos

    Square, where are you??????? I need my daily dose of hairy guys!!!! please come back soon
