Thank you, all of you, for all the great questions. There's a TON of them, and regretfully, not all will be able to be asked. I'm going to filter
these down as best I can, based off of what they've already answered in interviews, their web site, or that they've refused to comment on. Then I'm
going to filter down and combine questions a bit more to try and make the best use of the short amount of interview time. From there, I'll email it
to the PR agent, who will ask Grant and Jason if they will accept the interview based on the questions asked, and if so, which questions they will
Again, I thank all of you for the great questions, you've really covered all the bases, and I sincerely hope to be able to deliver this interview for
Here's the questions I've got so far, before any filtering:
You probably get asked this every interview, but it's been long enough since the last one the answer could have changed. What's the scariest place
you've ever investigated?
Any place you'd never want to spend the night in alone?
In your investigations, have you ever run across anything paranormal that you would consider dangerous? - If yes, anything where the occupant should
leave the premises or at least get rid of it?
What do you think the reason would be for a benevolent or malevolent ghost to haunt a living person or place?
Do some ghosts have a desire to communicate with the living?
Would you be willing to take a lie detector test to back up your claims?
Do you have any idea what a Shadow Person actually is?
-If yes, any idea if they were human at some point?
What are your thoughts on other paranormal folkloric creatures, like gnomes, elves, faeries, etc?
Have you ever run into some sort of higher spiritual being like an angel or some sort of heavenly being?
Have you ever run into a dimensional or time crossover where you felt like you were in the wrong period of time or place, rather than there being
What have you learned about the journey to "the other side"?
Why do some people become stuck between worlds whereas others move on just fine?
Have you ever recieved a message from someone that you knew in life? Dead relatives, friends, etc?
What personal experience started you on this path?
Since you usually look into the history, lore, story of a place before the investigation, do you feel that this might in some way affect or influence
the findings. Could the mindset of an individual affect the energy present to create an appropriate physical manifestation?
Do you ever go in "blind" just to see what happens, or do you always attempt to find the history of a place first?
Have you ever had anything "follow you home?"
What's your classification system for the haunts/ghosts that you find?
Are the majority of spirits you encounter aggressive, playful, or confused?
What's your opinion on orbs, rods, strings, etc.
Do you ever run across encounters that just flat out terrify you?
Are you planning on letting Steve run more shows?
Will there be any more shows with Barry?
How does someone become a member of TAPS?
What criteria do you use to hire a new TAPS member for Ghost Hunters?
Was it as bad as it seemed being stuck with CM Punk during the halloween episode?
Tango seems to get the approval of the fan base, and a lot of people seem to like him. Will he be a permanent part of the show?
Are you planning on returning to St. Augustine, FL
Are there any more episodes from Europe remaining to be aired besides the existing two?
Have you ever considered staking out the Ghostly Lincoln Funeral Train?
-If so, would you consider allowing amatuers to help stake out the route?
Do you have any plans to investigate Gettysburg, perhaps off-season to avoid tourists and campers.
Any plans to his any of the Asian countries such as Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and so forth?
Are there any plans in the works to have more regional spinoff series, such as a Pacific version of TAPS?
Are the locations you investigate based off of any particular system?
What equipment do you use in EVPs?
Why do you always ghost hunt at night, is there an advantage besides the use of IR cameras?
Why doesn't everyone on the show have helmet-cams, and are there any plans to implement this? There's been several occasions of "Did you see that"
and the main camera spins to the spot too late. Surely Sci-Fi channel would pay for these. The "evidence" from these auxilliary cameras wouldn't
need to be examines unless someone claimed such a sight.
Why are you so rude to ghosts and spirits? Does taunting them get an increase in paranormal activity?
Have you considered bringing along any biological paranormal detectors, such as dogs or cats to help you out?
When you first started the Ghost Hunters show, did you have any idea how huge of a hit it would be?
What opinions, if any, do you have about rival shows, such as "Most Haunted".
Do you think your producers, or customers, might sometimes rig up a site ahead of time to get higher ratings?
Have your personal belief systems changed as a result of the things you've come across as ghost hunters?
Have either of you ever been to AboveTopSecret.Com, and are you aware of its huge paranormal database on the paranormal?
How do you hold your fear in the scariest cases? What do you tell yourself to make you climb into a haunted place?
Do you do autographs through the mail?
How do you deal with criticism from watchers and scientists?
Many hunters of paranormal activity search their entire lives without a single experience. Why do you suppose you are lucky enough to find such
compelling evidence on such a regular basis?
With the success of the Ghost Hunters TV show, do you still remain employed with Roto-Rooter, and if so, why?
