Zak Bagans, Nick Groff, and Aaron Goodwin discuss Season 7 of Ghost Adventures, airing Friday nights at 9 PM ET on Travel Channel
The hit reality series Ghost Adventures is back on the Travel Channel, with Season 7 continuing Friday, September 28 at 9 PM ET with the new episode "Tor House". Paranormal investigators Zak Bagans, Nick Groff, and Aaron Goodwin took some time off from hunting these mysterious entities to participate in a conference call to discuss the new season. Zak Bagans first spoke about the level of skepticism some viewers may have about what they do, and that it's not their job to convince people these supernatural forces exist.
"It's not our job to really convince people, that's not why we're doing this. We do this for our own sake, you know, we were doing this before the TV show so that, you know, it's very important to understand that. We know there's going to be people out there that will not believe - if we do convince them through our evidence, then hey that's great, you know, join - you can join us now in the believing box. Those are two such diverse groups of people, but our non-believers you have to respect them because you really do - I think a majority of them, they want to have that experience for themselves and you want to have that experience for yourselves to believe. So, all of us that have had those experiences, very profound experiences with ghosts and that's why we're believers so some of this evidence that we're capturing we're not really that surprises anymore because we already know these ghosts exist."
Aaron Goodwin talked about still being scared on the job, after all these years.
"Well yes, every spot's scary, I don't care who you are, when it happens you get spooked. I was a lot more spooked back in the day but since the Winchester Mystery House and Hell Bar Dam, everything's kind of changed now, I still get really scared but I'm ready to like face it upfront now. Like back in the day, get me out of there, but now since doing it for so long, you get thrown in a lion's den then you fight lion - you become a lion in a way, you know. So now I kind of dig it."
Zak Bagans also talked about the investigation that had the most profound effect on him.
"Goldfield Hotel, one of the very first investigations. When we saw everything take flight, when Nick and I were in the basement, that scared the shit out of us and that's what really got us going in this. You know, after we saw that and the little voice that I heard short, you know, after that happened that was captured on the camera's audio. And to know that we just saw what looked like a brick took flight and then when Nick and I had that footage, you remember Nick we thought that was the only thing and then we had someone clean up the graininess of the camera - night vision camera and then we noticed that there was all different kinds of objects taking flight in like a vortex - like a twister. A board levitated itself back up and hit the concrete wall, the opposite trajectory as the brick thing and it was - that's what really got me man when I saw that."
Aaron Goodwin spoke about how his job has changed the way he watches scary movies like Paranormal Activity.
"I watch Paranormal Activity and I mean yes, you know, its funny - it's okay. There's things in there, not all of it but there's moments in there that I've had something happen in my house and obviously that scared me. Scary movies don't really scare me too much because I know there's some blood and they do it again. I've been doing films for awhile so it's like I know but that movie kind of spooked the crap out of me - just moments of it, not all of it."
