We all have our equal share of ghost stories to tell. A lot of you out there may be true believers and others are firm non believers, whichever part of the population you are, there’s a huge chance that you’re also asking the same thing “Is Ghost Adventure fake?” After the tell all of one of the shows Ex-Stars, the shows credibility became more questionable than it already is. The show is basically about this team of Ghost seekers trying to prove that ghosts are real. They’re methods are quite the unconventional and they lack this sense of professionalism throughout the entire 11 seasons. There were countless of moments when the hosts were running away instead of looking for some answers. The play of words and even the direction of the ghost reality series are also among its major give aways. So here’s a rundown on the things to consider on whether or not the Ghost Adventures is fake.
The host/stars are a little bit overacting
Nothing is more annoying that watching people screaming and running for their lives when they are actually hosting a ghost hunting show. Why do they even bother to shoot one when they’re all wetting their pants when they feel something off. But of course, this doesn’t really say much about their credibility in what they do.
There are a lot of evidences gathered but they lack proper analysis, which often leads to misidentifying key factors.
The crew is quite passionate at what they do, but sometimes they’re too passionate about it that they tend to forget to analyze their results, which gives rise to faulty conclusions.
They target on the audiences emotions to stir up fear.
For any show to be successful, it always needs to capture the viewer’s attention. For reality show like this, it’s quite very normal to see the stars try their best to make people feel awed by what they do or by what happens to them. They target on gaining your empathy, which is why they use plenty of those visual effects that make you feel like you’re watching a movie.
Which brings us to the next point, does anyone notice how frequent they get scratched or touched by the unknown evil things lurking in the dark? Is that even possible?
The unknown quite be very mysterious and a number of entities are able to do harm to people but aren’t you that curious at all how they always have that moment when they’re touched, scratched, pushed or slapped by those ghostly things they hunt? Ghostly entities especially those with immense negative energies can possibly bring harm to people but having too many of these entities makes it really quite questionable if these things they encounter are really true at all.
There were dozens of moments when it felt like it was very “SCRIPTED”.
We all know of course that a good show needs a great script for it to be entertaining. However, for this show, there were a lot of episodes that felt like the words were trying so hard to make the situation feel a lot scarier. Some of the dialogs between the hosts and the clients sounded a bit unnatural. This however doesn’t really prove that the show is fake.
They use to unconventional methods to get immediate results.
Mr. Bagans has this very arrogant way of calling out to the “ghosts”. Like “Come at me” or “Scratch Nick on the forehead”. We get it, they want results ASAP, but is that even necessary? Where’s their respect for the dead? This may seem very cool to watch for some people, but in all honesty, they’re approach is doesn’t really look professional at all. They just look like a bunch of young lads trying to capture videos that they could upload on YouTube and say hey! We captured a ghost.
Always jumping to conclusions when there’s all the need to weigh in the other factors.
Their main problem is that they never seem to take into account the place they work in, the and the factors that could affect the results. They just keep filming and saying that this place is making them run for the hills. A cat’s meow can sound like a woman crying, a windowpane moving back and forth can make the sound of someone walking. The wind can push down objects, and emf readings can affect people’s perception.
They lack the proper process in doing things, and they just keep on shooting like a bunch of amateur video makers.
They don’t do an emf sweep, or a temperature sweep for the matter. There are processes in investigating the paranormal. It’s not just an activity you can just document and poof you can say that there’s something paranormal in here.
They over sensationalize and forget that apart from proving that ghosts are real, there’s more to it than just that.
In short, too much talking and making people feel scary and entertained, and lesser looking at the whole picture to make people understand what paranormal really is. They just focus more on showmanship and not science at all.
It’s a reality show, so what else can you expect?
Everything that’s funded and produced for entertainment and viewing for a long period of time should make you rethink if the management doesn’t really manipulate the stories at all. It’s all business, so it’s not nearly impossible that there are a lot of things that are edited for the sake of the viewers’ demands.
In conclusion, we can safely say that the show is not fake but there are certainly lots of parts that are not as how a ghost hunting series should be. It should always be based on facts and science and not just on tugging on to the heartstrings of the viewers. Had they made the show focus on the hardcore facts, it would have been a lot better.
