Message from Josh Gates

“Over the last year, I’ve received thousands of emails, tweets, letters, mildly creepy packages, and the occasional shout from passing cars asking me about the future of Destination Truth.

I’ve been largely silent on the subject, and for that, I apologize.

After 5 straight seasons of chasing terrifying creatures and paranormal phenomena in the dead of night, I happily took some time off to kick back, treat a few strange rashes, and savor meals that didn’t have antennae sticking out of them. Honestly, it was just nice to take a shower.

I return to you now, bathed and de-liced, with some news – though it might not be the news you’re hoping for. After a great deal of discussion and consideration, I can now report that Destination Truth has sailed its last voyage.

Having reached the end of my second consecutive deal with NBC Universal, we decided that this was the right time to bring the series to a close.”


Destination Truth Season 5 Premiere

Thursday, May 17th, 2012


 Premieres Tuesday, July 10 at 8 PM

Season 5 opens with two special back-to-back episodes, as Josh Gates and his team lead viewers on a chase into one of the world’s biggest caves in the jungles of Vietnam to search for Bigfoot.

Then, at the overwhelming request of fans, they’ll travel to Romania for a return visit to the haunted Hoia Bachu Forest, the site of their most terrifying investigation to date, and then explore the reportedly haunted Mayan ruins of Tikal in pursuit of a monster known as the Belize Goblin.

They’ll also lead viewers into a remote Transylvanian village on a hunt for vampires and journey to Kazakhstan (a Destination Truth first) to search for the legendary Kazakh monster.

Syfy Host to Arrange Mysterious, Far-Flung Dinners Through Twitter And a Chance to “Steal” His Frequent Flyer Miles

Destination Dinner

Syfy Channel host Josh Gates is about to embark on all new adventures, and this time his fans are invited to come along. Gates made the surprise announcement during his panel at the C2E2 Expo in Chicago. “The fans of Destination Truth have been asking us for years how they can get involved with our travels. We loved the idea of bringing fans on the show, but it proved difficult. There are lots of considerations that have to be made at the network level, and the bottom line is that we just couldn’t make it happen as part of the show. So I decided to do it on my own,” Gates said.

The independent project, which Gates calls “Destination Dinner,” will allow fans to participate in an unprecedented travel opportunity. “Starting this summer, to coincide with the return of Destination Truth, I’m going to be personally hosting some very special dinners as a way of saying thank you to our amazingly loyal fans,” Gates announced. “And you’re all invited” he told the cheering crowd at C2E2.

As Gates pointed out, though, there’s a catch. The dinners will be staged in unusual locations around the world. “It could be a fish fry at floating village in Vietnam or a nomadic campfire BBQ in the Sahara Desert. I’ll be posting a date, a time and a place on Twitter @joshuagates, maybe just coordinates. And if you can make it there, an amazing dinner will be waiting for you – on me.”

Along with an exotic meal with one of the world’s most well traveled hosts, those who make the journey will also be rewarded with a custom guided tour of the destination, personally led by Gates. He also announced that a few lucky fans will also have a chance to dip into his frequent flyer miles. “It’s a well known fact that I am a depraved frequent flyer mile hoarder, and I got to thinking that without the fans of Destination Truth, I wouldn’t have nearly so many miles. It only seems fair that they should have a chance to steal some of those miles back.”

At each of the dinners, one guest will not only get a free meal, but have all of their airfare covered as well. “I’ve devoted the last four years to travel-adventure television, and I’ve always say that I want the fans to feel like they’re out there with me in the field. Now they can be,” Gates concluded. “I hope this little project will excite people to embark on their very own travels, and I’ll be waiting to toast them when they arrive.”

Destination Dinner is an independent project organized by Josh Gates and is not affiliated with NBC Universal, Syfy, or Ping Pong Productions.

Official rules and eligibility will be announced on Twitter by @joshuagates with the hashtags #DestinationDinner and #StealMyMiles.
