Love Rob's genuine enthusiam (bringing every topic alive) his almost childlike delight at every new discovery, his genuine interest in people, and his ability to make even the most mundane unmissable. His C.V. is astonishing. One of the few consistently worth watching. Makes you want to share his adventures. Thanks for making the licence worth paying.
He’s smart and good looking!
I love his enthusiasm on the science channel. I just had to look up this Rob Bell who can make the mundane sound sexy, for that reason but also because I’m married to an engineer as well but the really odd fact is my enginieeer is also named Robby Bell! -Hannah
