That Time Mike Rowe Gave a Mini-Tour of His Home to Prove ‘He Doesn’t Live in a Mansion’

Mike Rowe is often considered a champion for everyday people, but some wondered whether his day-to-day lifestyle aligned with the label. One social media user reached out to Rowe, wondering if he lives “in a mansion,” eats “Kraft Macaroni Cheese,” and if he ever “pulled a Dan Patrick.” In response, Rowe gave a mini-tour of his place.

It began with a simple set of questions from a fan on Facebook.

Kucera reached out to Rowe with a message that read: “Please tell us truthfully that you 1. Don’t live in a mansion, 2. That you’ve made and eaten Kraft Macaroni Cheese in the past year, 3. That you’ve driven around to find a parking spot so you don’t pay for parking at a sporting event and 4. You haven’t pulled a Dan Patrick and dropped celeb names you’ve met or hung with in an attempt to score with someone.”

Rowe answered Kucera, responding to each of the questions listed.

“Howdy,” said Rowe in the post. “1) I don’t live in a mansion. I house sat in one once, and I kinda liked it. But I’ve never owned one, and have no plans to. My current apartment is very modest, relative to the zip code. It’s the same one I’ve come home to for the last 14 years. With the exception of a small smokestack that partially obscures Treasure Island and Alcatraz, the view is the best thing about it.”

Rowe continued, replying to the question about Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, “2) I do. But in the interest of full disclosure, I also have some Ancient Harvest, Mac and Cheese with quinoa. (It’s important to try new things.)”

When it came to not paying for parking at sporting events, Rowe said that he “can’t recall the last time I went to a sporting event and didn’t take public transportation.

Finally, he responded to the fourth inquiry, with a question. He asked, “4) Who is Dan Patrick?”

Rowe also shared photos of his apartment, located in San Francisco, clearly displaying that he doesn’t live lavishly, even if he likely can afford to do so.
