TV personality Mike Rowe has some pretty unconventional advice for recent grads: “Don't follow your passion.”

The “Dirty Jobs” host offered what he called the “dirty truth” in a video commencement speech that urges young people to find their success by breaking the mold.

“When people follow their passion, they miss out on all kinds of opportunities they didn't even know existed,” he cautions in a thought-provoking video for website PragerU.

Hosting the Discovery Channel show has led Rowe to meet hundreds of skilled tradesmen “who followed opportunity, not passion, and prospered as a result,” he said.
