Plot Synopsis

Mike Rowe travels the country to find American laborers who make their living doing the most unthinkable jobs. With his hand-on- approach, Rowe becomes their apprentice, working alongside rat exterminators, bug breeders, sewer cleaners, cattle hide tanners and other professionals earning and honest but dirty living. For the show's ninth season, entitled DIRTY JOBS GOES DOWN UNDER, Rowe travels to Australia to experience Oz-like dirty jobs, such as: working with Aboriginals who have lived off the land for more than 40,000 years on Australia's northern coast; capturing, without killing, the Eastern Brown snake, a reptile with no known anti-venom; and warring against Cane Toads in the Western Australia town of Darwin, where these animals are destroying the local ecosystem.
