Ventura is the star of the upcoming Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, a new series that seeks to uncover the truth behind the most compelling modern day conspiracy theories. The show, premiering December 2 at 10:00 PM ET on truTV, follows Ventura as he travels across the country investigating cases, hearing from both conspiracy believers and skeptics.

Ventura joins the prestigious list of past Raw celebrity guest hosts, including NBA All-Star Shaquille O'Neal, Emmy-winning actor Jeremy Piven, television legend Bob Barker, Access Hollywood's Nancy O'Dell and rock icon Ozzy Osbourne.
