Paranormal Challenge airs tonight on Travel Channel at 8PM Central.
Each episode of Paranormal Challenge features a legendary haunted hotspot. Zak Bagans invites two handpicked teams of amateur ghost hunters to spend the night locked down in these notorious locations. The contest will pit the two teams paranormal skills against each other to find out who comes out on top. Each team is given high-tech gear to investigate these intense hotspots. After a night of collecting evidence, the teams present their findings to Zak Bagans and a panel of three judges who are nationally recognized paranormal experts.
They will be judged on teamwork, their use of technology and the evidence collected during the lockdown.
No word on how tight Zak’s t-shirt will be.
I don’t know what to make of this. It has the potential to be hilarious.
Travel Channel’s show page for PC is very Zak-centric. However, I’ve listened to one of the other judges on the radio (Dave Schrader) and his personality is seemingly more relaxed than Bagans. It might make interesting judging, but I don’t see either one of them playing a hard-line judge.
Are the amateur hunters going to be stooges? I find it difficult to believe there won’t be some stoogery. Let’s see if they can hit the mark without going over.
