Is this Josh Gates of “Destination Truth”?

03 Jun

I have this problem.  I see someone’s face, usually in movies, television, or pictures, and I think I recognize them from somewhere else.  It drives me nuts trying to remember where I saw them from before.  Recently I was watching an episode of “Seinfeld” when during the closing I saw someone in the background of a scene that I thought I recognized.  Since I was watching the show on the PVR (Personal Video Recorder) I was able to rewind and pause the scene to better study the face.   

I sat there for several minutes trying to place who this person was, or at least who they looked like.   

Who's this guy?

Who's this guy?


If you look to the right upper corner you’ll see a red arrow pointing to the person who’s face I seemed to recognize.   

Finally it came to me.  This guy looked like Josh Gates, of “Destination Truth”.

According to Josh would have been about 18 years old in the “Seinfeld” image above so several years have past between the two pictures.  I’m not sure if these two pictures are both of Josh Gates, or just two people that look close to the same.  I think they could be brothers if not the same person.   

I have sent a Twitter message to Josh giving him the link to the picture above, not surprising no answer.  I even tried tweeting to SyFy, and several members of the Ghost Hunters team.  I figured if nothing else they’d give Josh a hard time about it.  Nothing.  I’ve searched the Internet, checked and I can find no record of Josh being on “Seinfeld”.   

Josh Gates?

Josh Gates?


Send Josh a “tweet” and ask him! @JoshuaGates 

So what do you think?  Are both these pictures Josh Gates?  Sadly this is one “destination truth” that may never been reached. 😀

    No way that is him! Or is it…? Nah, I find JG extremely cute, but the guy in the background isn’t exactly eye candy…

    Joshua just replied to you. See below (I’ve cut and pasted)nnjoshuagatesnAnswer: First of all, that guy is a dead ringer for Dane Cook. And no, it’s not me. But I am now going to wear my hair like that.

    Well Joel either I’m in a very trusting mood, or I would just like to have the question answered. I wish Josh would have answered me on Twitter then I’d feel more sure of the “NO” answer. I’m usually pretty good at recognizing people and identifying them correctly. After looking at the dates (“Seinfeld” and Josh’s birth date) I thought it might be a stretch but possible. Thank you very much for asking getting a response from Mr. Gates and then sharing it with us here!

    It looks a little like Dane Cook but it’s not him either and it’s definitely not Josh Gates.
