Jennifer D. Corley,
Zak Baggans,Nick Groff, and Aaron Goodwin are out on a quest to catch proof of paranormal evidence by going to some of the most haunted places across the world from country music bars to abandoned insane asylums. They go in first to learn about the place then they the three are locked down inside for an entire night trying to catch ghosts on video and on audio. This show is really scary and really gets you to wonder about the after-life. Of course one cannot help being skeptical at points in the shows, however they still do hold a very convincing tone to it. I think it tops all of those other ghost shows. Especially the god-awful Ghost Hunters. I think that's what it's called, but it's the one where its the group one thousand British people and all it does is bore you rather than scare you. Watch them jump at barely audible noises, such as creaky floor boards and other non-scary stuff. Some criticism arrives from the show, but the evidence that tries to reveal them as fakes holds very weak and makes me want to see these skeptics locked down in a place ridden with demons. What gives Ghost Adventures a good scary edge is the taunting of evil spirits that mainly Zal Baggans does. In one episode he is physically attacked!! That is something that never happens on other ghost shows. Some deniers claim that they are actors. Well just to be honest, Zak and Nick have tried to become actors, however, that's complete B.S to bring up against them because a lot of people do stuff like that to get noticed. Like reporters who do stuff on purpose to get noticed or movie stars saying outrageous crap to get put in the headlines (example: Owen Wilson's suicidal thoughts. Angelina Jolie trying to become a lesbian.I could go on, but I don't think I will !!). Also to clear stuff up,I can safely say that these three kids aren't the only ones behind the show. I'm pretty sure there are people responsible for selecting the locations, writing the show's narration, and traveling with them. The three do go in for lock downs by themselves though. They also probably have some sort of creative direction behind the show. These guys can't run a Travel Channel show completely!! No one can for any show!! Even if it is reality. This show is really great and can be funny at times listening to their "Woah.... dude, bro" reactions as well as Zak's delightful personality. For instance when they are in the Houghton Mansion in the Masonic Temple part, Aaron bumps into this small altar and Zak jokes, "Woah, dude , that thing might have powers.." And think that's okay, because that's where this show gets it's charm from.
