Ghost Hunters Recap: Moving On Without Grant Wilson

September 5, 2012 06:56:37 by Ryan Haidet

After making his emotional goodbye on Ghost Hunters back on May 16, Grant Wilson is officially gone from the hit paranormal spookfest.  Now, the TAPS team is moving on with all-new investigations without Grant there at their side.  The episode kicked off with a very brief history from Jason Hawes explaining how TAPS formed.  Grant was slightly mentioned here, but there was hardly anything else discussed about him and the massive hole he’s leaving in this successful show.  So, TAPS started their new era in Charleston, South Carolina to the Old City Jail where Lavinia Fisher — America’s first female serial killer — spent her last few days alive before she was executed in 1820.  It was definitely one of the most frustrating episodes I’ve ever seen, which ignited in one moment that was so stupid I think the show made a big mistake by including it in the final edit.

Ghost Hunters: Offer Your Goodbye To Grant Wilson

May 17, 2012 10:00:54 by Ryan Haidet

Several months after making the shocking announcement that he would be leaving the show for personal reasons, Grant Wilson has officially signed off of Ghost Hunters.  His last investigation with the TAPS team aired on SyFy last night as they appropriately investigated a place he owns with co-investigator Jason Hawes — the Spalding Inn in Whitefield, New Hampshire.  Throughout the episode, SyFy was showcasing messages from fans who were posting on Twitter using #thanksgrant.  “You made us laugh, cry, learn, question and believe.  Thank you for eight wonderful seasons. You will be missed!” Saoirse L. wrote.  Natalie Z. wrote, “Thank you, Grant.  Your contribution to the world of paranormal research is inspiring and I hope to see you continue to do so, even if it’s behind the scenes.”  Now we want you to leave Grant your own goodbye message, which you can do inside this story.

Ghost Hunters Recap: Grant Wilson Says Goodbye

May 16, 2012 07:36:02 by Ryan Haidet

That’s it.  It’s over.  No more “What the frig?!?!” from Grant Wilson.  After eight seasons with the TAPS team on Ghost Hunters, co-founder Grant Wilson has wrapped up his final investigation on the SyFy spookfest.  It all was leading up to tonight’s episode after Grant made the shocking announcement during the February 15 episode that he was leaving the show for personal reasons.  Those personal reasons were never discussed on the show, which instantly sparked loads of speculation as to his real motivation for quitting the reality hit — the most popular rumor is that Grant has been having marital issues since his wedding ring was absent at the time he made the announcement.  And no, Grant wasn’t wearing his wedding ring during tonight’s farewell either.  What happened during his final investigation?  How did Grant say goodbye?  Read on to find out and to see his final words on the show!

May 9, 2012 07:58:08 by Ryan Haidet

Grant Wilson’s time on Ghost Hunters is quickly dwindling down, so to make his final moments special he investigated with some of the TAPS members one-on-one.  It was a way for SyFy to really tease his last investigation, which airs next week.  Plus, the ghostly evidence they captured — including a very creepy blood-curdling scream — made the episode worth watching.  What other eerie evidence did the TAPS team come up with?  Read on to find out!

Ghost Hunters Recap — Amazing Paranormal Activity Captured

May 2, 2012 07:56:50 by Ryan Haidet

If you’re a fan of Ghost Hunters, tonight’s episode is what the show is all about.  The TAPS team was able to capture and experience loads of paranormal activity aboard the USS Yorktown aircraft carrier in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.  It was a haungtingly entertaining hour as the spook seekers chased shadows and footsteps around the ship.  They even captured video of two full-bodied apparitions, which proved to be some of the coolest evidence ever seen on the show.  So much was happening that Jason even called it a one-in-a-million investigation.  What creepy things did they capture?  Read on to find out!

Ghost Hunters Recap — Spooky Boobies

April 25, 2012 08:09:21 by Ryan Haidet

Boobies.  Boobies.  Boobies.  Tonight’s episode of Ghost Hunters was all about boobies.  OK, not the boobies you’re thinking about, but a place by the name of Bube’s Brewery (pronounced like “boobies”).  If you have the mind of a 12-year-old, there’s no way you didn’t get the giggles hearing the TAPS team constantly say “boobies.”  Even they were laughing about it on the way to the brewery.  What spooky evidence did they find?  Was it enough to scare your bra off?  Read on to find out!

Ghost Hunters Recap — Still Working As Plumbers? No Way!

April 18, 2012 08:00:42 by Ryan Haidet

My biggest criticism of Ghost Hunters has always been the ongoing ridiculous portrayal of Jason and Grant still working as plumbers for Roto-Rooter.  While this may have been the case years ago when the show first started, there is no way these guys are still working as plumbers to make a living.  Having met Britt from the show last summer, he was very open with me about how much time the show soaks up from their lives.  Based on the travel alone, being a part of Ghost Hunters is more than a typical full-time job, which wouldn’t allow any other time for them to work on a stranger’s toilet.  To deceive viewers with the guys working as plumbers within the first three minutes of tonight’s episode, I think it becomes so much harder to believe anything else presented on the show.  If a reporter lied for half of a news story, would you ever believe anything they wrote again?  I don’t think so.  So, did the “plumbers” and their crew find any ghosts tonight as they investigated the U.S. Naval Institute in Annapolis, Maryland?  They seem to think so.  I don’t.  Read on for more!

Ghost Hunters Recap — Grant Wilson’s Final Investigations Begin

April 11, 2012 08:39:54 by Ryan Haidet

The shape of Ghost Hunters is soon going to change as co-lead investigator Grant Wilson wraps up his final investigations on the show.  Grant, who has been involved with TAPS since its inception, announced during the Feb. 15 episode that he would be leaving the show for personal reasons.  Although no further information was provided, many fans speculate he may be having marital issues since his wedding ring was missing at the time he made the announcement.  As the show returned tonight, it was the first of Grant’s final six episodes, which will culminate on May 16.  While I expect the episode will be a ratings success for SyFy, it really wasn’t the most entertaining one I’ve seen.  What happened during the episode and did they find anything paranormal?  Read on to find out!
