‘Ghost Adventures’ Star Fired For Revealing Truth About The Show
Well, this is disappointing! One of my favorite shows is Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures,” turns out the cable network’s producers did more than a little editing to the show.
According to Empire News, Aaron Goodwin was fired after he revealed the truth during an 8 minute rant on a recent podcast of Are We Alone.
He claimed the Travel Channel took everything that was truly paranormal about the show and mocked it by making the crew record their own voices in place of real audio of Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP’s). Goodwin claims they did this when producers didn’t feel there was enough material to air.
“If we film all night long and came back with uneventful material, they actually make us go back, and act out scenes. It’s sickening really. This started off as a real thing, it is just not consistent and active enough for the big-shots at the network, so they basically have turned us into liars. We have been committing a fraud in my eyes and I’ve just about had enough.”
A Travel Channel spokesman did say that he expects the show to go on with co-stars Zak Bagans and Nick Groff (who have yet to comment).
To be honest, this is really disappointing. I am a believer that paranormal things do happen. I always just assumed the show was heavily edited to make make it seem like there was a lot of activity in a small period of time. I wanted to believe that what they caught was real, though I’m not surprised, I’m really disappointed.
