In its second season, Destination Truth averaged 1.6 million total viewers, 943,000 Adults 18-49 and 992,000 Adults 25-54.

As part of the partnership, Orbitz.com will receive 18 exposures over the course of the nine-episode season, centering around the program�s key segment where Josh introduces each week�s destination.

A graduate of Boston's renowned Tufts University, Josh Gates holds degrees in archaeology and drama, and was recently inducted into The Explorers Club, a prestigious global organization dedicated to the advancement of exploration and field research. An avid scuba diver, he has participated in sub-sea archaeological excavations in the Mediterranean, and his work as a photographer has taken him from sweltering African villages to the icy heights of the Himalayas. In addition, he has scaled "the roof of Africa" on Mt. Kilimanjaro, climbed Aconcagua, the tallest mountain in the Americas, and set foot in more than 75 countries around the world.
