Ghost Hunters used to be a show of which the least people expected any skepsis regarding their credibility. They're scientific, skeptical, non-believers in spirituality and esotericbeliefs and aim for debunkage. They used to give the ones interested in the paranormal a kind of family-feeling but with the recent airing of Ghost Hunters Live 2008 Halloween show their fraudulent deeds have surfaced as some people kept 'close-taps' with some of the controversial footage that was aired. Additionally they did some fatal timing mistakes which you will see too.

It would probably surprise many, and some will deny but now it shows that not only Most Haunted Yvette & co. are roughless and heartless, TAPS are the same category.

I've never seen Ghost Hunters but I suppose it's one of the shows where they catches paranormal activity on tape in every single episode:o
We have a ghost hunting show here in norway too, it's kind of good and much more reliable, they've got something on cam a couple of few times during a 5 year periode or something like that.
Anyway thanks for shedding a light on this for us.:cool:

i'd rather watch a show where something unusual happens very rarely than have to endure Yvette Fielding slyly throwing stones around every 5 minutes & saying it's a spirit.

i've been skeptical about ghost hunting programmes since i saw Acorah do his "Mary loves Dick" routine.

such a shame the companies are more interested in viewing figures than genuine research.

And even worse guys, Ghost Hunters have their own radio show in which once, they were trying to get Yvette Fielding to expose her show as fraud.

The "truth-shows" on big television are just all fake, TAPS is not a happy ghost hunters family, they are not innocent, they're not genuine and they're in for the money.


I remember in a video (not sure if it was one of the above posted) it said that an "anonymous" ex-member had great concerns about their credibility and there is only 1 whom people would recognize as an ex-member.

They did their conning very well, they had episodes where indeed very little things happened, they also did an episode where someone tried to con them, using speakers with spooky sounds.

Say it isn't so!:eek: Ah, I loved that show. I even gave someone on another thread a link for the gadgets from their site.

I have noticed some oddities. Like their K2 meter that is supposed light up "yes" and "no" for questions. In the latest episodes you will see them ask questions but not show the K2 at the same time and then afterwards pan over to the meter that would be then flashing.

Also, they would "see" shadows but almost everytime the camera would be facing the other way. Someone even suggested they have cameras mounted on their heads so everyone could see what they were seeing but they dismissed that suggestion.

Yeah-the last live show was the final nail. You can obviously see Grant walking intentionally slow for the jacket to grab and then when it happened he over compensated with his movements. Also, when they entered rooms they were like looking around for something to happen-it looked more like bad acting.

Its a shame. I think they probably started out really wanting to find answers but when it became a show I imagine the pressure to perform every week was too much. I started to realize it becoming fake when they investigated a castle in Ireland and found faeries on the thermal-cam. Yeah-right...

Its a sad day...sniff-sniff...

Ive always hated watching that show (so I dont). Its always seemed like a set up, and has never been fun to watch.

Ill watch that ghost show on the travel channel though. Whats it called, ghost adventures? Those three guys are at least entertaining to watch, and it seems genuine when they talk and get scared. Even if its staged though, its entertaining.

I've been watching GA aswell, those are sort of interesting. I must say they appear to be genuine.

Thanks for posting this Xpleet. I watched the show a few times and it was a total waste of time. They walk around in dark rooms trying to act spooky.

IMO ghostly experiences do happen, because I have experienced them, but for the majority of people MAYBE a only few times in a life time, (if that), not every week. This is the problem for Ghost Hunters, if something doesn't happen they have to MAKE it happen or they have no show.

One day a few years ago myself and to other lightworkers were called upon to go to a restaurant in west London ,the place had a voodoo curse on it,making the vibes bad,it was a very poplar place to eat ,the owner had a dispute with some other restaurant,(yugoslavian).When we went in the energy was very strong!the 3 of us maneged to form a half circle around the energy as we put our hands out they tingled ,to cut along story short,we maneged release the energy, as we did this there was a comochin downstairs in the kitchen,when we got down there the chef and to others who were unaware of our activities were very scared they said that a very cold wind which tingled ther faces and hands swept past them and shocked the 3 of them.

Thers one thing that gets me,why is it at the start of the show derick always semes to pick up vibes strate away all over the building and whit the lights on,and later with the lights off he seems to change,as when they put the glass on table he sits their looking around himself while ganet is asking is there anybody there ,or can they make a noise,its like if hes not picking up anything,thers no spiret present,the funney thing is when she shouts make a noise and there is a noise they all frick out!!

it may not come a surprise to many but most haunted is an absolute con. yvette fiellding and her husband (who coincidentally produces the series) are frauds who throw stones/move chairs around in the dark etc. to make a nice little earner, plus derrick akora used to look up all the information on a laptop when the crew arrived at the place. and every subsequent 'psychic' has too. 100% fact.

I have had some very strange occurences, ive been at meetings where the strongest pyschics have told people stuff they would/should not know.

Ive been on ghost hunts where fuck all happens, and ive been on ghost hunts where shit loads has happened.

As to say wether this stuff exists I simply cannot prove, as to what id be proving I wouldnt know either lol.

There defo something wrong with them faking the stuff in the places they do it, im sure they will have a lot of negative energy following them.

I love Ghost Hunters! It is the willful suspence of disbelief! Some of the shows are really fake. Other ones seem to be real, to me at least. I like to be scared. There are other shows that aren't "real" but they are just as entertaining.;)

I have knew they were frauds since the first time that I seen the show; but I still watch for sheer entertainment.:D The giveaway, is the fact that they catch something on nearly every show, just like clock work: ssshhh.. did you hear that?...... it sounds like it come from over there!:eek:
