Interview with “Boston Rob” Mariano from Around the World in 80 Ways

I recently got the chance to speak to “Boston” Rob Mariano about his new show on HISTORY, Around the World in 80 Ways, which premieres on Sunday, October 2, at 10/9c.

From HISTORY: “For two adrenaline junkies attemptng to circumnavigate the globe using every conceivable mode of transportation, it’s not the destination that counts: it’s the journey itself. Hosts Robert “Boston Rob” Mariano and Dennis Anderson must get themselves around the world in 80 different ways, from rickshaws and hovercrafts to hang gliders and barrels. Packed with extreme escapades in Brazil, Peru, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania, Dubai, India, Thailand and the United States, their voyage takes them not just across the planet but also through time as they explore the history behind how people have traveled over the ages.

Now and then, these two seasoned daredevils have to concoct and build their own means of transport, taking “off the beaten path” to a whole new level. Mariano, a four-time Survivor contestant, and Anderson, a monster truck champion, aren’t technically competing with each other, but they can’t resist bringing a dose of friendly rivalry to every new adventure. Sometimes, getting there is half the fun. In this series, it’s an epic challenge.”
