I wonder if they've known for awhile and that's the reason they've had Britt along lately as the odd 7th investigator. Just trying to make it an
easier transition for the fans.
If I'm remembering my GH history & gossip correctly, Britt was moved (along with Kris Williams) to GHI. Then during a radio show he used an f-word
(think derogatory word for gay) and said some other stuff people found offensive and he was fired. Then after a short time was re-hired back to GH.
Not sure the story there. All that played out late about Oct 2010 thru March 2011.

Maybe now they can reinvent the show, get rid of the cameramen and add personal (like ghost adventures) or mounted camera rigs (like destination
truth), and put more science into the show. I'd love to see them work with the Fact or Faked team. One thing I don't see them doing is investigating
for possible hoaxes, like the one they discovered in their early seasons. These hotels and museums and other places they visit are making a fortune by
charging high prices for tours and ghost hunts after TAPS have been there, so there would be a lot of incentive to make sure TAPS finds something. I
think that TAPS owes it to their fans and other ghost hunters to ensure that these places are genuine.
I have friends that have met Jason & Grant and from what I understand there is much more filmed than what you see on TV. From actual full
investigations, to the debunking of activity that does make it on air. It all comes down to what makes it out of the edit bay and they have no control
over that, stars of any show rarely do.
Not to go too far off topic but I would just like to point something out about reality shows. When someone signs up for a reality show what they are
told when they are being "sold on" participating in the show and what actually airs does not have to match up. That is pretty much said in the
release form signed before any filming begins. They can use (or not use) what they film any way they see fit for the program they are making. Once
that form is signed and the person steps infront of the camera, all bets are off. (just look to Doomsday Preppers, I'm pretty sure those people
thought the program would be more educational when they signed on)
I was once asked to participate in a reality TV show for a major network and trust me, the wording is a little scary. Part of that pariculair
agreement was the right for them to use my actual or simulated
So if they wanted me to say something really stupid, they could
have just had a voice actress cut the line, then insert it for broadcast. (not that I need any help being an idiot, I do just fine on my own!)
Hope that gives you a better understanding of how it all works. Some people don't know those things, so I try and share when ever possible.
